Chicago IL Market Statistics Update - April 21, 2008

Good Morning, Everyone!

Here's the latest Stat Summary on the Chicago Real Estate Market, based on data pulled yesterday evening, April 20, 2008 -

Rebounds in Sold Units, Sales Volume, and a nealy 22% drop in Average Market Time might be a good omen for the Spring market here in Chicago.  This was the first truly warm week of the Spring, and interest in our listings seems to have increased this week.  Active Listing Inventory increased slightly, and Units Pending Sale were stable. 

Absorption Rate went down a slight bit this week, to a theoretical market time/inventory of 28.35 months.   Just six weeks ago, the area Absorption Rate approached 42 months.   Percentage of Sale Within Six Month (180 Days) again dropped slightly week-to-week.
