Home sales in Brookside continue to slow down, as is usual this time of year. As we get into colder weather and the holiday season, buyers have other things on their minds. It’s very difficult to look at homes when darkness falls at 5pm! Here are the home sales stats for the Brookside zip of 64113 from October 2014:
In October 2014, 25 homes sold. Median list sales price was $340,000, and median sales price was $320,000 with an average of 41 days on market. The lowest priced home sold was $158,000 in Armour Hills and the highest was $615,000 in Romanelli Gardens.
In October 2013, 23 homes sold. The median list and sales price were the same: $279,000 and 35 days on market.
Virtually the same number of homes sold compared to a year ago, but the sales price was higher.
Looking at year to date figures:
From Jan – October 2014, 244 homes have sold at a median sales price of $307,000 and 37 days on market.
From Jan – October 2013, 271 homes sold at a median sales price of $298,000 and 46 days on market.
So far this year, the trend has been fewer homes sold and prices are up. There is still a lack of updated, well maintained homes in the $200-$225K price range in Brookside. It is encouraging that home values continue to rise, so we continue to make up equity lost during the housing crash during the recession.
Currently there are 81 single family homes for sale in the Brookside zip code of 64113 with a median list price of $384,950 and 80 days on market. Of the 81 homes for sale, 24 are priced over $500K and 9 are priced over $1 million. (All figures taken from Heartland MLS and deemed reliable but not guaranteed).
