Hello, Kansas City! We hope you had a joyful and restful holiday season. As we re-enter the world of real estate, Team Real Estate is here to unwrap this week’s figures and provide you with a fresh perspective on our local housing market.

Holiday Slowdown

It’s no surprise that the Christmas holiday had a significant impact on our real estate scene. We’ve observed a substantial 42% decrease in the number of homes being listed last week, with only 194 homes making their debut. The holiday season often brings a slowdown in real estate activity as families come together to celebrate.

Higher List Values Despite the Season

Despite the holiday slowdown, there’s been a 6% increase in the average list value, which now stands at $364,721. This is an interesting trend and might indicate that sellers are still optimistic about their property values.

A Post-Holiday Dip in Sold Prices

The average sold price has experienced a noticeable 16% decrease this week, now resting at $311,161. This dip is likely a reflection of the holiday season, as both buyers and sellers take a break to enjoy the festivities.

Fewer Price Reductions

Intriguingly, the number of listings with price reductions has also decreased by another 36% from last week. Sellers may not feel the need to adjust their prices as aggressively during the holiday season.

Post-Holiday Transactions

Transactions appear to be resuming after the holiday break, with the number of homes going back on the market down by 32%. This suggests that deals are progressing with fewer interruptions.

Pending Homes and Days on Market

However, the number of pending homes has decreased by 6% to 387. This could be a temporary holiday-related fluctuation, and we’ll be keeping a close watch on it in the coming weeks.

The average number of days on the market has also decreased by 11% to 41 days. Homes are moving faster, which could indicate that motivated buyers are looking to make a move in the new year.

In conclusion, the Kansas City real estate market experienced a holiday-induced slowdown, with fewer new listings and a dip in sold prices. However, the market appears to be reawakening as we move into the new year.
