Armour Hills continues to be one of the strongest Brookside subdivisions in terms of desirability for buyers and homo appreciation.  It will be interesting to see how Armour Hills finishes out the year--with single digit or double digit percent increase over last year.  Here are the stats for las...

Home sales are slowing down across the metro area compared to the earlier in the year; a slowdown when the weather cools is typical.  Here are the stats for single family home sales in Brookside (using zip code 64113) for last month and a YTD comparison: Sept 2019                                 ...

Whew, the Armour Hills subdivision in Brookside continues to rise in value compared to the Brookside zip of 64113 as a whole.  I think this is primarily due to location, the park amenity, the range of home pricing, a strong homes association and the charm of the neighborhood.  Sales are steady, p...

The peak spring and summer buying season is over, and as we get closer to the holidays, there will be fewer listings that pop on the market.  For Brookside, (using zip code 64113) last month's stats were similar to a year ago--with higher median price.  Let's break it down: Aug 2019              ...

As we check the numbers for Brookside home sales this year, an interesting fact to note:  more homes are selling this year but at lower prices.  This seems off.  Let's take a closer look at the statistics for single family home sales in Brookside, using the zip code of 64113: July 2019           ...

Did you know there is a women’s consignment shop in Brookside??  I didn’t!  It’s fairly new, having opened in April.  Remix  is a welcome addition for female shoppers who appreciate a bargain—and want to ‘recyle’ their stylish clothes. Owner Catherine O’Sullivan moved here from Boston ten years a...

As a Brookside neighborhood (Armour Hills is one of the larger subdivisions in the area), buyers are still snapping up homes quickly--yet the market does appear to be slowing down..probably usual mid July slump as so many people head out of town on vacation. Here are the stats for June home sales...

I remember a time not that long ago when I would show homebuyers in Waldo a pretty nice, small 3 bedroom, one and a half bath home in Waldo for under $200K near 75th and Wornall. Not anymore--buyers are having to go farther south and/or east, plan fix up projects or get less square feet for that ...

We are in the middle of the peak Spring home buying season...yet sales are down in Waldo.  Prices are up, though.  Is the slowdown a lack of inventory, lack of demand or is Waldo following the national trend of fewer home sales?  Time will tell. Here are the stats for single family  home sales in...
