Brookside Home Prices Rise in Feb 2014

It’s the last day of March 2014..and I am just squeaking in to report February 2014 home sales for Brookside!  The year is getting off to a strong start with average prices rising.  Here are the stats for single family home sales in the Brookside zip code of 64113, using median average pricing:


In February 2014, 11 homes sold.  Average list price was $305,000 and average sales price was $298,000.  Average days on market:  31. The highest sales price was $657,000 for a home on Morningside Drive; the lowest sales price was an Armour Hills home at $199,900.  


In February  2013, 14 homes sold.  The average  sales price was $293,000. Days on market: 135.  


You can see the average sales price is higher, and the average days on market is lower.  


Checking year-to-date figures:


Total homes sold in Jan/Feb 2014 was 24 and at an average sales price of $289,000 and 69 days on market.


Total homes sold in Jan/Feb 2013 was 31 and at an average sales price of $265,000 and 99 days on market.


It’s true that fewer homes were sold, but average price is up. This reflects the lack of inventory we have so far this year.
