Comments Off on Continued Improvement In Real Estate Market Has Nearly Pushed State Of Kansas Into A Seller’s Market

Checking The Pulse Of The Kansas City Real Estate Market

The most recently released Kansas Association of Realtors stats (for the month of March) indicate a strengthening real estate market in the state of Kansas. The volume of home sales continue to rise and with that trend average sales prices are trending higher as well. Overall in Kansas, home sales increased another 4.1% in March, compared to March 2011 market stats. This follows a 3.4% increase at last months check.

The state has moved back into a balanced real estate market with 5.3 months of inventory on the market. If next months stats show any further improvement, Kansas is likely to move into a seller’s real estate market. The 5.3 months of inventory is a huge reduction over the 7.4 months inventory last month. The rise in home sale prices was even more impressive, with average sales price rising a massive 9% compared to March of last year. This improvement follows up last months even larger 10% increase. 

Locally in the Johnson County Kansas area, the real estate market continues to favor home sellers. Over the past month there were 725 homes sold (closed) and comparing this sales rate against the current volume of homes for sale, it calculates to 2.9 months of inventory on the market. This is an improvement over last month’s already seller dominant 3.1 months of inventory.
