Brookside Home Prices Up Over 10% in 2015

Here we go, Brookside neighbors….a recap of 2015 home sales for our area.  The good news? Prices are up.  The bad news? Not much desireable  inventory in the critical $225-325K price range.   I am reporting closed single family home sales for the Brookside zip code of 64113:  

In 2015:

* 342 homes sold.

* The median list price was $337,750; the median sales price was $309,475.

* Average days on market:  39.  

*Seven homes sold for over $1 million. Highest sales price was a $1.8 million home on West Meyer Blvd.    

*53 homes sold for over $500K.

In 2014:

*289 homes sold.

*The median list price was $307,000; median sales price was $295,000.

*Average days on market:  41

*Two homes sold over $1 million.

*42 homes sold for over $500K.

These number show us that prices are going up, and more homes are selling.  The days on market are virtually the same (days on market is how long a home sits before going under contract).  Upper bracket buyers (for homes $500K and up) were more active in 2015 than the previous year. 

Now let’s look at a few more figures to show trending home prices.  Below are the median sales prices for each year and how many units sold:

2013:  $295,000 median sales price; 307 homes sold.

2012:  $277,000 median sales price; 296 homes sold.

2011:  $249,000 median sales price; 210 homes sold.

In 2015, prices increased in Brookside 11% over the previous year.

Since 2011, we’ve seen a 32% increase in prices in our neighborhood!!!  

We continue to have a thriving, desirable location for buyers of all price ranges  here in Brookside. For those sellers who maintain their properties, keep them updated and move in ready–expect to have a quick sale, especially in the $225-$300K price range. Lower priced homes that need a lot of updating and repair also go under contract quickly–they are ‘flipped’ by investors.
