Waldo Home Sales Report-May 2020


The pandemic has not slowed down Waldo home sales or prices!  There is still a lot of demand from buyers looking in this area.  Homes are selling fast too, often with multiple offers.  Here are the stats, using the Waldo area from State Line to Holmes/Gregory to 85th St:

May 2020                                                                             May 2019

Median list price:     $269,900                                        $232,500

Median sales price:   $257,500                                       $232,500

No. of homes sold:      37                                                     40

Days on market:           5                                                       5

That’s a hefty 10.5% increase from a year ago regarding sales price; however looking at the YTD numbers will tell us more.  Overall, neighboring Brookside prices are slipping compared to a year ago but in Waldo, still on the upward trend:

Jan-May 2020                                                              Jan-May 2019

Median list price:      $219,950                                     $229,950

Median sales price:     $226,000                                   $222,897

No. of homes sold:          125                                            132

Days on market:              12                                               13

So far this year, many sellers are getting an average of 2.75% over asking price for their Waldo homes; and houses are under contract within two weeks.  Currently there are 14 single family homes for sale in Waldo, with an average list price of $339,925 and 16 days on market. One reason for the high average list price is the four brand new homes under construction on the 7700 block of Kenwood–all priced over $350K.
