Last month, Armour Hills had it’s highest recorded home sales price of the year–and that final price was $53,000 over the list price! As I reported in last week’s blog, some Brookside homes have sold for $100,000 over asking price. That is too crazy! An over $700K price for an Armour Hills house just shows the reach some buyers have to get what they want. The high price tag affected the big jump in the median sales price compared to Aug 2020. Here are the numbers:
August 2021 August 2020
Median list price: $384,900 $317,500
Median sales price: $382,000 $320,000
Days on market: 31 3
No. homes sold: 5 12
Every property that sold last month closed over the list price except one. The highest sales price of the year so far was $703,000 on a home priced at $649,900.
Here are the year-to-date numbers:
Jan-Aug 2021 Jan-Aug 2020
Median list price: $367,450 $339,950
Median sales price: $386,000 $337,500
Days on market: 2 5
No. homes sold: 50 57
Compared to last year, home prices are up 14% in Armour Hills. Currently there are seven listings, ranging from $349,000 to $575,000. The median price is $399,000 and 26 days on market.
