Armour Hills continues to be one of the hottest neighborhoods in Brookside for buyers–many sellers who have maintained and updated their homes through the years are  experiencing multiple offers and quickly getting the homes under contract.  Here is the September 2017 home sales report for the Armour Hills subdivision in Brookside:

Technically these figures show a median sales price increase of 16% compared to last year–however I don’t think the year end figure will be that high.  Currently there are six homes listed in Armour Hills, with a median list price of $317,000 and 32 days on  market.

 

Brookside Home Sales Stats-Sept 2017

The housing market continues to favor sellers in Brookside, especially in the desirable $300-$400 price range.  Units sold are almost half of last years’ September figures, due to lack of inventory in this price category.  Here are the single family home sales for the Brookside zip code of 64113, and year to date comparisons:

September 2017

Median List Price:     $349,000

Median Sales Price:   $333,000

No. of Homes Sold:         17

Days On Market:               8

September 2016

Median List Price:       $380,000

Median Sales Price:     $375,000

No. of Homes Sold:          29

Days On Market:              44

The lowest sold price last month was $195,000 and the highest was $520,000.  In September 2016, there were several sales over $600K, including a $1.25 million dollar sale, so that’s why last year’s median price is higher than 2017.  Still, home went under contract very fast last month–under ten days on market.

Checking year-to-date figures:

January-September 2017

Median List Price:      $379,000

Median Sales Price:    $365,000

No. of Homes Sold:       225

Days on Market:             18

January-September 2016

Median List Price:      $359,250

Median Sales Price:    $353,500

No. of Homes Sold:        252

Days on Market:             35

Due to less inventory this year, prices are up and homes are going under contract faster.  Median sales prices increased 3.25% compared to last year.  Currently there are 50 homes for sale in the Brookside zip code of 64113, at a median price of $557,500 and 62 days on market.  Over half – 27- of the homes are priced over $500K.
