In my monthly Carmel sales reports, Brookshire often shows up as one of the neighborhoods with the most activity. There are several Brookshire neighborhoods, there is North, Villages, Pines and Lakes. Today I want to highlight Brookshire located between 116th to 126th and Gray. You've probably been by it; it has the pillars with the lions at the entrances.
It is an older neighborhood, built mostly in the early 70's. Most of the homes have basements and are four bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. It is a very large neighborhood with nearly 400 homes. The neighborhood has beautiful mature trees and winding roads. It is conveniently located near Brookshire Golf Course.
Currently there are only seven homes available. Five of those are two story homes and the other two are ranch style homes. There are several tri-level homes as well. Most of the homes sell for approximately $100/sq ft. This is one neighborhood that has avoided most of the foreclosure/bank owned homes. Only one sold since January 1, 2009 and it sold for $66/sq ft.
The days on the market average is all over the map and that is probably because some of the homes haven't been updated since the 70's and others have. On the short end, they sell in about 60 days; on the long end, they take over 150 days to sell.
Since January 1, 2009 there have been 12 homes that have sold which is a little better than 1 per month. There are currently seven on the market, so about a six month supply. A balanced market between buyers and sellers is at five months.
The location of Brookshire, the variety of homes and the maturity of the area make this neighborhood very popular for people looking to buy a home for sale in Carmel.
