Armour Hills has been one of the hottest Brookside neighborhoods for buyers this year–few bidding wars.  We are into the traditional slower season now, and the stats reflect that.  Still, the numbers are pretty consistent comparing year to year:

Interesting stats for the Armour Hills subdivision in Brookside–a slight dip in home values to report and several homes currently on the market.  That’s a change from previous months.  Let’s look at the numbers:

Brookside Home Sales Report – May 2018

Up, up, up….Brookside home values continue to rise in this busy spring/summer buying season.  There is always a lull around Memorial Day..still, due to lack of inventory, prices keep going up because there aren’t enough homes for sale to meet demand, particularly in the under $400K price category.  Here are the home sales stats for May 2018, using the main Brookside zip code of 64113:

May 2018                                                                              May 2017

Median list price:     $374,500                                     Median list price:    $332,500

Median sales price:  $383,500                                   Median sales price:  $341,500

No. of homes sold:      29                                               No. of homes sold:    40

Days on market:          9                                                 Days on market:        4

Homes are still selling in a very short amount of time after they are listed; and sellers are often paying over asking price, possibly due to bidding wars. The highest sale last month was $1.4 million, and the lowest was $221,000–which was $11K over the list price. 

Here are year-to-date stats:

Jan-May 2018                                                                        Jan-May 2017

Median list price:    $399,900                                       Median list price:      $379,995

Median sales price:  $383,500                                   Median sales price:   $360,000

No. of homes sold:      101                                               No. of homes sold:      119

Days on market:         10                                                   Days on market:          18

So far this year,  prices are running 6.5% over the same period last year–and selling quicker.  Currently there are 49 listed single family homes in Brookside, with a median price of $544,000 and 31 days on market. Just 17 of those homes are priced under $400,000.  The lowest list price is $229,000 and highest is $4.25 million.
