Wonderful Waldo! Overall, home prices rose in this area last year. Waldo has always been a popular place to live, and I think even more so lately as we’ve had so many locally owned new businesses move into Waldo. Let’s look at single family home sales for Waldo, comparing 2013 to 2014; and we’ll start with stats for December. The boundaries I’m using are State Line east to Holmes, and Gregory south to 85th St.
