Not a lot of activity in Armour Hills in March regarding  sold homes–however, that is normal as the first couple of months of the year are not popular times to list homes due to traditionally cold weather.  Still, there was an increase in median sales price!  Let’s look at the March 2017 home sales for Armour Hills, and a comparison to last year.

Armour Hills Home Sales Stats – Nov 2015

Good morning neighbors!  Are you in the thick of holiday hoopla?  Just imagine moving during this hectic season!  We had a few homes close last month in Armour Hills, and prices continue to rise.  Here are the details for  single family home sales In Armour Hills in November 2015:

In November 2015, four  homes sold with a median list price of $274,950 and a sales price of $276,000 with 70 days on market.    Interestingly, three of the four homes sold were on East Winthrope.

In November 2014, six  homes sold with a median list price of $264,950 and a median sales price of $259,500 with 67 days on the market.

You will notice that the median sales price was higher than the list price–that is because one of the homes probably had closing costs added to the list price.  The other homes sold very close to list price.

Checking year-to-date figures:

From January through November 2015, 73 homes have sold with a median list and sales price of $265,000 with 34 days on market.

From January through November 2014, 61 homes sold with a median list and sales price of $239,950 and sales price of $239,950 with 31 days on market.

It is unusual to have the list and sales price be the same figure.  However, buyers are paying top dollar to move into Armour Hills..when the property is priced correctly.

So far this year median sales prices are up over 10% compared to 2014 for Armour Hills.  Next month I will have the usual December figures as well as a year to date comparison for the past few years.  Currently there are 5 homes for sale, with a median list price of $249,500 and 88 days on market.

Armour Hills Home Sales Drop in June 2014

Here at the halfway mark of the year, It’s time to check the home sales stats for Armour Hills in Brookside. In June  2014, (similar to May)  we had decrease in average sales price and fewer homes are selling.  Let’s look at the specifics:

In June 2014, seven homes sold with a median sales price of $228,000 and a very short 22 days on market.  One home was listed at $168K and sold for $199K–the result of a bidding war between rehabbers I’m sure.

In June 2013,thirteen homes sold with a median sales price of $249,000 and 51 days on market.  The lowest sales price was $180,000 and the highest was $335,000.

The shorter days on market period shows us that buyers are snapping up the updated, newer listings as soon as they hit the market.  The lower average price can be explained in the lower list price of the homes for sale and falling prices for the homes that were overpriced to begin with.

Now let’s compare year-to-date figures:

For the first six months of 2014, 34 homes sold with a median price of $240,000 and 51 days on market. These are  virtually the same numbers as the first five months of the year.

For the first six months of 2013, 40 homes sold with a median price of $245,000 and 76 days on the market.

Overall, inventory has been lower than last year, reflected in the fewer number of homes sold.  The $5000 price drop in average price is not something I am concerned about. Overall, prices are rising in Armour Hills. Currently there are 14 homes for sale, with a median sales price of $235,000. The lowest price home is listed at $179,950 and the highest is $499,900.

Now that we are past the July 4 holiday, I expect  slower sales  and fewer homes  listed through the end of the year.
