 Another sign of Spring!  The Brookside Farmers' Market opens tomorrow, Saturday April 14, 2018 for the season.  Location is the same:  southeast corner of 63rd and Wornall, at Border Star elementary school.  There are many farmers' markets in the metro area; what makes this one a bit different i...
Wornall Road in the heart of Waldo seems to be  a never ending construction site, and will continue to be for the next few years.  Here's a summary of what's going on:*This week, contractors will start drilling around 75th and Wornall.  The work is related to the bigger (and much needed) 75th/Wor...
The numbers for these stats are ...very unusual !  I double checked all of the figures.  You'll see the numbers prices are identical--what are the chances of that?  Here are the February and YTD figures for the Armour Hills subdivision in Brookside: February 2018                                  ...
Waldo is again in high demand for home buyers--final sales prices are (at times) thousands of dollars over the list price.  Here are the Feb 2018 single family home sales stats for Waldo, using the area of State Line to Holmes and Gregory to 85th St: February 2018                                 ...
It's early in the year, however home buyers are out shopping--traffic during open houses is very heavy!  There still isn't very much inventory in the highly sought after $200-$350K price range -- and those that do pop on go under contract almost immediately.  Here are the February single family h...

A fixture of Waldo for decades, Waldo Antiques and Furniture closed last year.  Driving by this spot at 226 W 75th St, just east of Wornall, was a visual treat--there was usually a few eclectic pieces of furniture or odd painting on display right there on the sidewalk.  It was a local spot--a pla...
Waldo homes did not last long when put up for sale last year--they generally went under contract in less than two weeks and median prices were up 5.6% over 2016. I think demand for Waldo homes will continue to be strong in 2018.  Below is the first report of home sales for the year, using the geo...
As I write this blog, I am looking ahead wondering if Armour Hills will again be one of the most desirable neighborhoods for buyers in 2018. Last year the average days on market for a new listing in Armour Hills was just 7, and median home prices increased 14.9% over 2016. Those numbers say a lot...
