The Kansas City Real Estate market suffers from lack of single family attached and detached real estate investment. In contrast, the Chicago RE market has had the benefit of 50 years of affordable housing via the development of condominium and diminimus PUD projects.EXAMPLE: Pulte Development has had a successful participation in the Chicago real estate market. Opposed to Pulte vacating the Kansas City market in the past decade. Why?They could not sell their product in Kansas City that had been very successful in other markets. Developers in KC have found that the public does not have the qualifications to buy. The KC market is designed for the deep pocket market. Very hard to find an attached single family property that was built in the past 5 years. Forcing out the buyer with limited ...

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...
