ARE HOMES STILL SELLING QUICKLY?

Even with the big spike in the average home price, homes in Kirkwood are definitely taking longer to sell.  In Q3, they sold in 37 days on average, but 33% of the homes sold ONE week or less.  The median number of days on market was only 25, which is way up from just 8 days last year.  

Part of the longer sales cycle is due to the large influx of new construction homes that are listed before the homes are complete.  Another reason is that many of the Kirkwood homes for sale were at the higher end of the neighborhood price range and there just aren't as many buyers, so they took longer to sell.

If you are thinking of selling your Kirkwood home it is SO important to price it at fair market value so that you can generate multiple offers and get top dollar for your home.  If you are priced correctly and your home is in good condition, it will most likely sell within 10 days.

ARE BUYERS STILL PAYING TOP DOLLAR?  

Yes, but buyers are starting to negotiate a bit more off the asking price.  Kirkwood homes sold at 97.8% of the asking price, on average, versus 100% last Fall.

A whopping 31% of the homes sold at or OVER the asking price.
