Looking at the July 2012 real estate sales activity in Leawood Kansas to calculate the city’s absorption rate, we find there’s 5.5 months of inventory currently on the market. This amount of inventory is considered a slight advantage to the sellers.  6 months of inventory is considered a "balanced" market. 58 homes sold were on the market an average of only 94 days and had an average sales price of $381,000. The average price of active listings was $597,000. The 29 homes that went under contract (pending) is just as impressive as the volume of homes sold (closed) in Leawood KS as the local market continues to improve for home sellers.
