Brookside Home Sales Report-October 2022

These things are true: sales of single family homes are slowing, and Brookside homes are generally defying the trend. Those sellers who have well maintained homes in a desirable location, and priced right–buyers are still out there, purchasing in Brookside! Let’s look at the numbers. I’m using the main Brookside zip code of 64113 for the report:

October 2022October 2021
Median list price:$584,475$485,000
Median sales price:$622,500$472,000
Days on market: 3 3
No. of homes sold: 18 27

Last month, of the 18 homes that closed, four homes were over $1,000,000 and 12 closed over $500K. That accounts for the higher median sales price-31% over October 2021! As you can see, most buyers paid over the list price. Houses continue to go under contract within a few days. . Here are the year-to-numbers:

Jan-Oct 2022Jan-Oct 2021
Median list price:$499,000$475,000
Median sales price:$505,500$480,525
Days on market: 3 3
No. of homes sold: 252 279

Comparing the YTD figures, Brookside home values are running 4.84% higher than last year even though less homes have sold. As interest rates have risen this year, some would-be sellers are sitting tight on their fixed low rates rather than have a new mortgage at a much higher price. Less inventory usually pushes prices up. Currently there are 19 homes for sale in Brookside, with a median list price of $525K and 38 days on the market. Four homes are priced over $1,000,000.
