Brookside (in Kansas City MO) Home Sales Report-July 2022

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

We have some interesting home sales stats for this month's Brookside home sales report--a big increase in price compared to last year, but fewer homes sold. Let's take a look at the specifics; I am using the main Brookside zip code of 64113 for this info, single family homes:


  July 2022 July 2021
Median list price: $540,000 $434,500
Median sales price: $530,000 $460,000
Days on market:      3        3
No. homes sold:     35       28


Home values rose 15% compared to July 2021, yet many buyers ended up paying just under the list price last month--whereas last July, when interest rates were much lower, buyers were paying over asking price. Homes are still going under contract quickly--within a few days. Last month, four homes closed over $1,000,000; the highest closed sale was $1.7 million and the lowest sale was $310,000. Now let's look at the year-to-date numbers:

  Jan-July 2022 Jan-July 2021
Median list price: $495,000 $450,000
Median sales price: $510,000 $478,500
Days on market:       2     2
No. homes sold:      181    196


These figures show a 6.5% increase in home prices YTD compared to the same period in 2021; buyers paying about 3% over asking price. Fewer homes sold so far this year; this could be a result of the higher interest rates that started in the Spring. Currently there are 14 active single family homes for sale in Brookside, with an average list price of $429,950 and 20 days on the market.

Mary, by the looks of these numbers, doesn't look like your area is feeling any sort of shift.   Great report.
