Neighbors, in this month's report, we see the affect rising interest rates are having in our area: median sold prices are lower and some homes stay on the market longer. However, for the year, home values have risen in Brookside! Let's take a look at the specific numbers; I'm pulling these stats based on sales in the main Brookside zip code of 64113:   September 2022 September 2021 Median list price: $439,900 $484,900 Median sales price: $437,900 $480,000 Days on market:       19      4 No. homes sold:       25     25 The lowest closed price last month was $315,000 and the highest was $1.7 million. We had two million dollar+ sales last month. Median sales price was just under list price; compared to the same period last year, prices fell 8.7%. Here are the year-to-date numbers:   Jan-Se...

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 mill...

Halfway through the year for Waldo home sales and the stats are showing a bit of a slowdown to what we've been experiencing for the past several months: buyers are still paying over the asking price, and newly listed homes going under contract within 48 hours. Yet the number of units sold -- big drop. Here are the details for single family homes in Waldo; I use the street boundaries of Gregory to 85th St and State Line to Holmes:    June 2022 June 2021 Median list price: $240,000 $255,000 Median sales price: $250,000 $270,000 No. of homes sold:    27    49 Days on market:     2     2  There was a 7.4% drop in median sales price compared to June 2021 and fewer homes sold. Part of the reason for this could be the interest rate hikes that started this Spring--that can have an affect on buy...

Here we are at the halfway point of home sales this year...and my, how the market has changed since January! Primarily regarding the higher interest rate. There is still quite a bit of demand though, and prices are still rising. Let's take a look at last month's stats first for Brookside, using the primary zip code of 64113:   June 2022 June 2021 Median list price: $459,950 $482,000 Median sales price: $485,000 $500,000 No. of homes sold:     26   38 Days on market:     2 2 The highest sale last month (and so far for 2022) was $2.85 million, which was $101K over the list price! The lowest closed price was $340,000. Final sales prices were about 3% below last June. Here's a look at year-to-date numbers:   January-June 2022 January-June 2021  Median list price: $489,250 $470,250 Median sa...

I almost titled this blog Why You Shouldn't Rely on Comps to Price Your House...and any agent reading my words knows what I'm talking about.  Comparable sales that closed  in January through May  may not be relevant in this fast changing market. Often, sellers don't understand why...so let me explain.Yesterday I was visiting a past client who wants to sell their home in September.  It's a beautiful home in a very desirable area, excellent school district and well maintained.  Mr Seller announced:  "I want to list it at $600K!  Two neighbors got that price so that's what we are expecting."  Checking the subdivision comps, there are indeed two $600K sold properties.  Both listed in February, closed in April,  were listed around $525K and  had bidding wars.  A median sales price for the ne...

I wanted to share a recent testimonial.  I am so grateful to work with such great clients!Tim assisted us in purchasing our home when it was tough for buyers to purchase. Tim was amazing, and always available to show houses when they became available for viewing. He was honest with his impressions of the house, and knew exactly what to look for. Since this was my first time buying a home, he was patient and explained every step during the process. The entire process ran smoothly and well above any expectations I had. I would highly recommend Tim. - Fred D. & Tom H.I was grateful for the opportunity to assist Fred & Tom as their Accredited Buyers Representative (ABR) on this successful transaction!Do you know someone looking to buy or sell real estate?  I sincerely appreciate your referr...
