Brookside (Kansas City MO) Home Sales Report - July 2020

Real Estate Agent with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate-Kansas City Homes

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:


July 2020                                                                                  July 2019

Median list price:    $425,000                                                 $377,500

Media sales price:     $425,000                                               $370,000

No. of homes sold:       33                                                            36

Days on market:           5                                                              20


We had a $1million+ sale last month, and the buyer actually paid $115K over the list price! That's unusual for these higher end homes, that tend to sit on the market for several weeks.  Sellers were getting at or above the list price for homes that closed last month.


Let's look at the year-to-date numbers now:


Jan-July 2020                                                                            Jan-July 2019

Median list price:    $387,475                                                    $389,950

Median sales price:  $393,750                                                    $382,500

No. of homes sold:        152                                                           190

Days on market:             8                                                               24


So far, home values are running 2.94% higher than last year.  Currently there are 22 single family homes for sale in Brookside, with an average list price of $974,000 and 65 days on market. The reason for that very high average price is half of the homes for sale are priced over $1,000,000.

Mary, you weren't kidding, homes are being snapped up quickly.   Single digit days on market is tough on buyers.
