Kenilworth Real Estate Snapshot January 2017

Real Estate Agent with Baird & Warner Real Estate

In January the weather is usually predictably cold - but not this year.  The fine weather has brought Kenilworth Home salesout many buyers as well as new listings (and old ones) entering the market.  Kenilworth has had high inventory for a while but Joseph Sears School is still a huge draw to people wanting an excellent school that encompasses K-8th grade.

What does the Kenilworth real estate market look like today:

Homes for sale:  39

Low price:  $599,900

High price:  $7,749,000

Median price:  $1,725,000

Under contract and pending homes:  8

Absorption rate:  9.5 months (buyer's market)


How were Kenilworth home sales in 2016?

Total homes sold:  51 

Low price:  $440,000

High price:  $4,000,000

Median price:  $1,200,000



What were the most popular price ranges in Kenilworth home sales in 2016:

Kenilworth homes for sale

To fine tune these numbers further, the most sales occured like this:

  • 17 homes sold for under $1 million
  • 15 sold between $1-1.5 million
  • 19 homes sold over $1.5 million


One issue I noted is that the median asking price for a Kenilworth home is $1,725,000 but the median sold price is $1,200,000. The numbers don't lie and I predict that list prices will need to come down more.
