Brookside home sales statistics are in, and there has been a slight change from one year ago as compared May 2013 to May 2014. Prices are still rising! I am checking single family sales for the main Brookside zip code of 64113, details below:
In May 2014, 36 homes sold. Median sales price was just under $300,000 and 102 days on market. The lowest sales price was $155,000 and the highest was $1.35 million. (That Sunset Hill property had been for sale since October 2012.)
In May 2013, 30 homes sold. The median sales price was $290,000 and 118 days on market. The lowest sales price was $180,000 and the highest was $1.7 million.
More homes sold in May 2014 and in a shorter amount of time, and the average sales price was about $10K higher this year.
Checking year to date figures:
From Jan-May 2014, 103 homes sold at a median sales price of $298,000 and 84 days on market.
From Jan-May 2013, 113 homes sold at a median sales price of $285,000 and 110 days on market.
A few less homes sold so far this year, probably due to a lack of well priced, updated inventory..and the average sales price continues to rise. The Brookside housing market is overall in good shape and on an upward trend for higher home values!
Currently there are 99 single family homes for sale in the Brookside zip code of 64113 with a median list price of $460,000 and 125 days on market. This high median list price is due to the large amount of upper bracket homes for sale at this time. There is still a strong demand for updated, well cared for homes priced from $250-350K in our area…those are the ones that seem to sell the fastest.
