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

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

Three months into the pandemic and home sales in Brookside and Waldo are strong...for those updated homes priced under $400K.  Still, values have slipped since last year.  Let's take a look at the specific numbers, using the main Brookside zip code of 64113:


May 2020                                                                May 2019

Median list price:     $368,000                              $424,900

Median sales price:   $371,500                             $422,500

No. of homes sold:      32                                           40

Days on market:          4                                             22


Several of the homes that closed last month were at or above list price; five homes priced over $500K sold quickly.  Still, prices were a little lower and fewer homes sold--probably because some sellers decided to stay put during the coronavirus emergency.

Checking year-to-date stats:


Jan-May 2020                                                          Jan-May 2019

Median list price:     $368,000                                $399,950

Median sales price:  $370,000                                $395,000

No. of homes sold:         92                                         123

Days on market:             13                                         34


Sellers are still getting very close to list price, even though values have dropped a bit. Homes are selling quickly after going on the market--again, those in the under $400K price range.  Currently there are 39 active listings in Brookside, with 25 homes priced over $500,000 and 13 of those over $1 million.
