On this last day of September, I’m finally getting around to post the Brookside home sales stats for August 2013. It’s been a busy month! No surprises here: prices continue to rise, and homes are selling faster.
In Aug 2013, 33 homes sold. The average list price was $403,543 and the average sales price was $384,255. Average days on market: 84.
In Aug 2012, 31 homes sold. The average list price was $375,358 and the average sales price was $357,238. Average days on market: 95.
Continuing the trend this year, average sales prices are higher than last year, about a 7.5% increase over last August.
Let’s compare year-to-date figures:
In the first eight months of 2013, 220 homes sold with an average sales price of $356,029 and 88 days on market.
In the first eight months of 2012, 200 homes sold with an average sales price of $321,320 and 109 days on market.
So far, Brookside home prices have increased almost 11% this year over last!
Currently there are 83 homes for sale in zip 64113, with an average list price of $745,259. Twelve homes are priced over $1million, which pushes the average list price higher. As the calendar moves closer to cold weather and the holiday season, number of units sold per month will fall lower, as this is the time of year when there are not as many new listings popping on the market. However, we’ve had a strong 2013 so far for home sales and I think this year will beat last in terms of average sales price and number of homes sold.
