As I write this blog, I am looking ahead wondering if Armour Hills will again be one of the most desirable neighborhoods for buyers in 2018. Last year the average days on market for a new listing in Armour Hills was just 7, and median home prices increased 14.9% over 2016. Those numbers say a lot about how strong this neighborhood is.

armour hills real estate agent: Armour Hills (Brookside-Kansas City MO) Oct 2016 Home Sales Stats - 11/21/16 04:31 AM
Is Armour Hills the hot neighborhood for Brookside buyers this year?  Seems that way, as once again the median sales price is over the list price!  Because I live in Armour Hills, I can tell you buyers are very attracted to the area because of the central location to the Brookside shops, convenient Metro bus service, the revitalized park in the center of the 'hood, easy access to the Trolley Track Trail  and the wide range of prices.  Here are the numbers:
October 2016
Ten homes sold. Median list price was $294,974. Median sales price was $304,999, with 34 days on market. Seven … (0 comments)

armour hills real estate agent: Arbor Villa Park (Brookside) Features New Playground! - 09/06/16 10:29 AM

 
It's taken three years....and finally, we have new playground equipment in Arbor Villa Park in Armour Hills!  Special thanks to Armour Hills HOA President Tiffany Moore for soliciting PIAC funds for this project. Her hard work paid off!
 
The park features several new pieces of equipment:  a climbing structure, arch swing, and large play equipment on top of rubberized 'hills' to minimize injuries during a fall.  The new playground equipment joins the new tennis courts that were installed in the park last year.  And of course the kiddle pool is still there, now closed for the summer.
