Armour Hills Home Sales Recap-Dec 2019

I’ve said a few times last year that Armour Hills has some of the fastest growing home values in Brookside–and these year end stats support that statement. Why?  Several reasons I think:  a wider variety of home prices; close to Brookside/Waldo amenities; lots of curb appeal and interior charm; a strong homes association; Arbor Villa park sits in the middle of the subdivision.  Let’s look at the numbers:

December 2019                                        December 2019

Median list price:    $402,000                Median list price:     $276,950

Median sales price:  $397,000               Median sales price:   $272,500

No. of homes sold:    2                             No. of homes sold:      2

Days on market:      24                            Days on market:          65

Technically prices rose 31% over December 2018, however this is a bit of a fluke–only two homes sold each year, and obviously last month it was the larger, more expensive homes.  The YTD comparisons tell the real story:

Year             Med. List Price           Med. Sales Price          No. Sold          DOM

2019              $339,900                         $340,000                         82                   21

2018              $315,000                         $315,000                        80                     9

2017             $314,500                         $312,500                          9                      7

2016             $275,000                          $274,500                         91                  21

2015             $269,700                           $266,750                        80                  28

The number of homes sold each year is very consistent, and sellers are getting very, very close to asking price.  Since 2015, values up 27.4% in five years; Brookside (using zip code 64113) values are up 13.8% during the same time period. Armour Hills…hot neighborhood for buyers!

Currently there are four active listings, with a median list price of $367,475 and 42 days on market.
