I'm a broker with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Kansas City Homes. I see a need out there for some good, honest facts for customers and agents.
Today I checked out what has sold in the last 30 days in the Liberty, MO and Park Hill, MO school districts. (The two most popular districts in the area)
Out of 151 properties sold in the last 30 days, 21 homes were listed for 10 days or less before going under contract. Another 20 or so were new construction or build jobs. With a few skewed numbers from a couple of short sales, the average days on market came in at 103. And the last stat is the average sales price—-$202,717*.
This tells us again and again that if you have a home to sell in this area, now is the right time to call a REALTOR and put it on the market. The really good properties (priced right, good condition, well cared for) are selling like hotcakes and we could use more listings to give our buyers some options.
The new construction numbers look great as well. A few of our subdivisions are selling their model homes so quickly, the agents are begging the builders to build another one so they have somewhere to office. It’s nice to see builders building (and selling) their quality homes again.
If you’re looking to sell in the Northland, jump in!!!
