As I reviewed these stats, I noticed home sales were lagging behind 2019 during the same period. Normally, April through June is very strong for home purchases–with the pandemic going on, I think we will see a slowdown in the coming weeks. For now, here’s the single family home sales report for Brookside, using the zip code of 64113:
March 2020 March 2019
Median list price: $347,450 $399,950
Median sales price: $338,750 $380,000
No. of homes sold: 15 29
Days on market: 12 69
About half as many homes sold last month than March 2019, but sellers were getting within 2% of list price. There were several homes that closed over $500K same time last year as compared to last month. Below are the year-to-date numbers:
Jan-March 2020 Jan-March 2019
Median list price: $359,475 Median list price: $382,000
Median sales price: $358,000 Median sales price: $368,375
No. of homes sold: 38 No. of homes sold: 52
Days on market: 40 Days on market: 75
Home prices down a bit this year, fewer sales, but sellers getting within 1% of list price. I see homes still selling fast in Brookside if they are priced under $400K–will see how all of this shakes out over the next several months.
Currently there are 24 active listings in Brookside, with a median list price of $520,000 and 45 days on market. Prices range from $264,950 to over $7 million. Over half the homes are priced over $500K.
