brookside real estate agent: Brookside (Kansas City MO) Home Sales Report - July 2020 - 08/24/20 10:11 AM
Here in the dog days of summer...the selling and buying market is still very strong in Brookside!  Usually from mid August to mid September, there is a slow down as people take last minute vacations, get kids back in school, have a long Labor Day weekend.  But this year, new listings in the moderate price range are being snapped up almost immediately!  Here are the sales stats for single family homes in Brookside, using the zip code of 64113:

Halfway through the year!  How are Brookside home sales doing? Well, with interest rates continuing to fall, it's very competative for buyers right now.  Well maintained, well priced updated homes sell  quickly.  Values are up compared to June 2019; year-to-date numbers are lower.  I'm checking the stats for the main Brookside zip code of 64113, single family homes:
 
June 2020                                                                 June 2019

As I reviewed these stats, I noticed home sales were lagging behind 2019 during the same period.  Normally, April through June is very strong for home purchases--with the pandemic going on, I think we will see a slowdown in the coming weeks.  For now, here's the single family home sales report for Brookside, using the zip code of 64113:
 
March 2020                                                             March 2019

My apologies for posting this blog a little late...the entire country is not in the usual routine!  I'm going to keep posting home sales stats as usual, as I am curious how the pandemic will affect home buying and selling.   We'll see the effect within the next 60 - 90 days.  In the meantime, here are the February home sales stats for the Armour Hills subdivision in the Brookside neighborhood of Kansas City:

This is my first blog post in several days, and since then the Corona virus has taken over our everyday lives.  I plan to continue to post home sales stats; as far as reporting on new businesses and events in the Brookside/Waldo area--that news is on hold, since most of it right now consists of shops and restaurants shutting down.  I know our neighbors and residents will support our local businesses as much as possible as we get through this day to day.  Please patronize CurbsideKC !  Here are the February home sales stats for Brookside, using the zip code 64113 … (3 comments)

brookside real estate agent: Armour Hills (Brookside, Kansas City MO) Home Sales Report Aug 2019 - 09/22/19 12:02 PM
Whew, the Armour Hills subdivision in Brookside continues to rise in value compared to the Brookside zip of 64113 as a whole.  I think this is primarily due to location, the park amenity, the range of home pricing, a strong homes association and the charm of the neighborhood.  Sales are steady, prices are up. Here's the stats:
Aug 2019                                                       Aug 2018

The peak spring and summer buying season is over, and as we get closer to the holidays, there will be fewer listings that pop on the market.  For Brookside, (using zip code 64113) last month's stats were similar to a year ago--with higher median price.  Let's break it down:

brookside real estate agent: REMIX-A New Consignment Shop in Brookside - 07/30/19 12:59 PM
Did you know there is a women’s consignment shop in Brookside??  I didn’t!  It’s fairly new, having opened in April.  Remix  is a welcome addition for female shoppers who appreciate a bargain—and want to ‘recyle’ their stylish clothes.
 
Owner Catherine O’Sullivan moved here from Boston ten years ago.  She has a background in fundraising, having worked for the KC Symphony and UMKC.  But, she says, “I always had the small business bug in me”.  She did a lot of shopping in consignment stores in Boston and decided to open her own shop here.

brookside real estate agent: Armour Hills (Kansas City MO) Home Sales Report-June 2019 - 07/18/19 09:18 AM
As a Brookside neighborhood (Armour Hills is one of the larger subdivisions in the area), buyers are still snapping up homes quickly--yet the market does appear to be slowing down..probably usual mid July slump as so many people head out of town on vacation. Here are the stats for June home sales in Armour Hills:
 
June 2019                                                                    June 2018

Sold listings for Brookside last month were down compared to one year ago-- it could be due to the unusually cold and snowy winter we've had..or the lack of desirable inventory.  Here's the stats, based on the main Brookside zip code of 64113:

brookside real estate agent: Bored in Brookside? Get Out and Try Something New! - 02/13/19 01:37 PM
You've heard of the dog days of summer...to me, this time of year is the worst!  No holidays, lots of long gray days and recently, almost constant ice, slush and snow.  (Although, I do enjoy a soft, several inches snowfall !) 
 
When it's chilly and dark, It's easy to spend all your freetime inside, under the blanket on the sofa watching Netflix and ordering in.  But if you are itching to get out and try something new...I've listed a few suggestions in this blog.  Invite some friends to meet up and try something different!  Explore someplace in Brookside and Waldo you've never … (3 comments)
