Armour Hills Home Sales Report- June 2022

Home values in Armour Hills continue to rise, and last month we had the third highest closed sale ever–it’s very rare for an Armour Hills house to sell for over $700K but it happened again! Here are the stats for this Brookside subdivision:

June 2022June 2021
Median list price:$390,000$337,500
Median sales price:$430,000$347,500
No. of homes sold: 9 8
Days on market: 2 2

Overall, home values are up 23% compared to June 2021! The highest sale last month was $701,000 on a list price of $660,000. The lowest sale was $365,000.

Here are the year-to-date numbers:

Jan-June 2022Jan-June 2021
Median list price:$395,000$365,000
Median sales price:$420,000$367,450
No. of homes sold: 43 34
Days on market: 2 2

Compared to the first six months of last year, home values are up 14%; buyers are paying 6% over asking price. With interest rates rising, we’ll see how the end of the year shakes out–if prices come down somewhat. There is still a lot of demand so I don’t foresee a big plunge in home sales at all. Currently there are five homes listed in Armour Hills with an average price of $405,000 and ten days on the market. The ten day figure shows you that at least some homes are not going under contract within 48 hours of listing. Of those five homes, all listed within the three weeks, three of them have had price reductions.

Armour Hills Home Sales Report – March 2022

Let’s start with another example of how far some buyers will pay over asking price….in March, an Armour Hills home sold for $52K over the list price!. With interest rates on the rise, will buyers pull back on the bidding wars? We will find out…my guess is there will still be multiple offers for the most desirable, updated homes, but instead of 15 offers, perhaps 5-8 offers. Here are the March stats for Armour Hills in Brookside:

March 2022March 2021

Armour Hills Home Sales Report-2021

Hi Neighbors! Our subdivision had a healthy increase in home values last year, with most properties going under contract within a couple of days. Prices will not be going down in 2022–that’s a pretty safe prediction! Here are the numbers:
