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
Median list price: $382,500 $299,500

Armour Hills Home Sales Report-February 2022

I’m posting this last blog about February home sales stats … just a few days in to April! Prices on the rise and higher than last year at this time…same story! These numbers reflect home sales in the Armour Hills subdivision in Brookside:

February 2022February 2021
Median list price:$407,000$335,000
Median sales price:$395,000$358,775
No. homes sold: 4 5
Days on market: 86 2

The median sales price increased 10% over last February. Note the longer days on market figure–that is because there is one house in Armour Hills that sat on the market 213 days before going under contract.

Here are the year-to-date numbers:

Jan-Feb 2022Jan-Feb 2021
Median list price: $415,000 $347,000

Compared to the same period last year, home values are up16% in 2022. And most buyers pay at or over the list price. The lowest closed price so far is $330K; the highest is $535K. As of this posting, there are no homes for sale in Armour Hills. The homes that were listed in the past week are all under contract.

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:

Year20212020201920182017
Median list price365000345000339450315000314500
Median sales price380000344000340000315000312500
Days on market372197
No. homes sold7099828093

The increase in value from 2020 to 2021 was 10.4%, and the increase from 2017 to 2021 was 21.6%. I find it interesting that fewer homes sold; homeowners are staying put in our beautiful neighborhood! The highest sales price last year was a whopping $703,000, and the lowest was $212,000. Note most buyers are paying over list price.

The busy buying and selling season is just a few weeks away–if you plan to be a buyer / seller, now is the time to plan and plot strategy!

Armour Hills Home Sales Report-October 2021

Hi neighbors!  One more post about October Brookside home sales stats before we move into December. Just like the rest of Brookside, Armour Hills home values took a dip last month compared to a year ago; however overall, prices are up!  Let’s take a look at the numbers:

October 2021                                         October 2020

Median sales price:  $370,000               $426,250

No. of homes sold:    5                              6

Days on market:         13                           2

Although the median sales price last month was 15% less than October 2020, sales were steady and the highest recorded price-$461,000-was $61K over asking price! Yes, I double checked that number!   Below are the year-to-date numbers:

Jan-Oct 2021                                         Jan-Oct 2020

Median list price:     $372,400                $349,000

Median sales price:  $382,500               $345,000

No. of homes sold:     58                           79

Days on market:          2                             5

The majority of buyers are paying at or over asking price, and homes are going under contract within two days of listing.  So far this year, prices are up just about 10% over last year. Currently there are four active listings in Armour Hills, with a median list price of $452,450 and 42 days on market.

Armour Hills Home Sales Report-August 2021

Last month, Armour Hills had it’s highest recorded home sales price of the year–and that final price was $53,000 over the list price! As I reported in last week’s blog, some Brookside homes have sold for $100,000 over asking price. That is too crazy! An over $700K price for an Armour Hills house just shows the reach some buyers have to get what they want. The high price tag affected the big jump in the median sales price compared to Aug 2020.

August 2021                                                                            August 2020

No. homes sold:                  5                                                         12

Every property that sold last month closed over the list price except one. The highest sales price of the year so far was $703,000 on a home priced at $649,900.

Here are the year-to-date numbers:

Armour Hills Home Sales Report-January 2021

Armour Hills is one of the most desireable neighborhoods in Brookside and the rising prices confirm it-the -median price of a home was unusually high in January 2021. However, just three homes closed, all in a higher than usual price for Armour Hills. Here are the numbers:

Armour Homes Home Sales Report-November 2020

The end of the year is almost here!! I’m ready for a long, quiet snow day! Will take several days after this last blog post of the year–unless some exciting urgent news pops up. I’m working on a couple of blog posts for January 2020. For now, let’s look at the home sales report for Armour Hills in Brookside:

Once again last month, many sellers got asking price or more for their homes. A few more homes closed and houses are still going under contract very quickly after they come on the market. Here are the year-to-date stats:

Armour Hills Home Sales Report-Oct 2020

Here we are at the very end of November 2020–this year is almost over! And despite the pandemic, Armour Hills homes continue to sell quickly and, quite often, for over the list price. Take a look at last month’s stats, and how they compare to October 2019:

October 2020October 2019
Median list price: $407,000 $349,950
Median sales price: $426,250$340,000
No. of homes sold: 6 7
Days on market: 2 42

Yes, that’s a very big increase in median price–25%!–but it’s an aberration. The year-to-date numbers give you a better picture of how much Armour Hills home values are increasing. There’s no doubt though that homes are going under contract faster this year, and sellers are getting top dollar for their properties:

Jan-Oct 2020Jan-Oct 2019
Median list price: $349,000$345,000
Median sales price: $345,000 $340,000
No. of homes sold: 79 77
Days on market: 5 15

The YTD numbers show an increase of just under 1.5% for the year. The lowest priced sale so far in 2020 was $238,000 and the highest was $535,000.

As of this writing, there are no active listings in Armour Hills! That is rare, but also shows you how quickly listings sell! There are 17 homes under contract, waiting to close.
