Good news for Brookside homeowners! Once again our home values increased in 2014! I just checked the stats for single family homes sales last year (in zip code 64113) and properties continue to sell at an overall higher price than 2013. Below I am outlining the details, with a comparison of the last several years for reference.
Year Median Sales Price Avg Days on Market # of Homes Sold
2014 $306,000 41 290
2013 $295,000 45 306
2012 $275,000 61 294
2011 $249,000 87 204
2010 $264,000 87 209
For the year, prices are up 3.72% from 2013, and 11.27% since 2012. The average time a house sits for sale before going under contract shrunk by a few days; the number of homes sold down by a few units.
Brookside continues to be a popular location for all types of homeowners. In 2014 we saw several teardowns on our area plus the rehabbers continuously snap up houses to update and flip. The east side of 63rd St is bustling with new businesses and office space. Current homeowners add on to existing homes, update interiors and there are more school choices for young children. All of these improvements add to the desirability of Brookside as a place to live which translates into higher home values. (Also – 2015 is a property tax reassessment year for Jackson County, so you may see an increase in your property taxes.)
I will briefly mention December 2014 stats as well: nine homes sold, with a median sales price of $236,000. In December 2013, seven homes sold at a median price of $224,900.
Currently there are single family homes for sale in the Brookside zip code of 64113 with a median list price of $425,000 and 130 days on market. (All figures taken from Heartland MLS and deemed reliable but not guaranteed).
