Hey, Kansas City homeowners and future home seekers! It’s that time again for your weekly dose of real estate insights. As your trusted real estate agency, we’re here to break down the latest figures and trends to keep you in the loop.
Let’s jump right in with the numbers for this week. We’ve seen a healthy 18% increase in the number of homes being listed, totaling 694 homes hitting the market. This uptick is a promising sign, giving buyers a wider range of options to explore.
Now, let’s talk prices. The average list value has taken a slight dip of 5%, landing at $370,185. While this might grab your attention, remember that market fluctuations are natural and can reflect the ebb and flow of supply and demand.
On the other hand, the average sold price has remained steady at $350,445. Consistency in the average sold price is a positive indicator of a balanced market, where sellers and buyers are finding common ground.
When it comes to pricing strategies, the number of listings with price reductions has risen by 6% from last week. This suggests that sellers are actively fine-tuning their pricing to attract potential buyers and create more opportunities for negotiation.
Additionally, the number of homes going back on the market has experienced a 5% increase, totaling 139 listings. While a moderate uptick, it’s a reminder of the importance of clear contract management to ensure smooth transactions.
The cherry on top of this week’s update is the average number of days on the market, which has dropped another impressive 20% to 27 days. Properties are moving quickly, and it’s a testament to the continued demand for well-presented and reasonably priced homes.
