Kingsbrooke Single Family Home Report: May 2012
Summer has officially begun in Bristow's community of Kingsbrooke. School is out and I'm sure the Kingsbrooke community pool is alive with the sounds of splashing and laughter. The Kingsbrooke single family home market seems to have stabilized. Let's take a look back at the single family homes sales in Kingsbrooke for May and compare to last month (April 2012) and last year (May 2011.)
KINGSBROOKE SINGLE FAMILY HOMES FOR SALE
5 Listings were Active: All Regular Sales
There were more active listings in May than there had been in April. This time, they were all regular sales. The high list price was nearly 16% higher than last month; low list price up 34%. Average list price was over 16% higher than last month and well over 47% higher than last year. While these numbers suggest increased value it is important to keep two things in mind. First, there were smaller single family homes bringing the values down last month and last year. Second, the best idea of market value will always come from the sold column.
