Chicago IL Market Statistics Update - November 23, 2009

Good Morning!

Here's our update on Chicago IL Real Estate Market Statistics, based on data compiled and reviewed Sunday Evening, November 22nd 

Stability seems to be the key in most indicator numbers this week.  In the North and Northwest Side of Chicago Neighborhoods we frequently serve,  Active Listings Inventory showed little change.  Pending Sales fell - predictable as the Thanksgiving Holiday approaches. 

Average Sales Price and Average Market Time held about steady, while Sales Volume gave back last week's gain, and a little bit more.   Units Sold figures were flat, while and Listings Expired jumped - perhaps, by design, as the holidays approach. 

Absorption Rate - the theoretical time to clear existing homes-for-sale inventory, continued its declining trend.  It is now just short of 9.3 months - a very, very encouraging trend. 

The Percentage of Homes Selling in an Estimated Six-Month Marketing Time Frame increased once again last week - it is now over 52%!

Here are archived annual Chicago Neighborhood Statistics, including Units Sold and Price Trends Data, for 1995 through 2008 courtesy of The Chicago Association of Realtors.

In addition, here is an Interactive Median Price Heat Map, from the Chicago Tribune Real Estate Section, covering Every Chicago Neighborhood.  View the map for links to maps for Chicago Suburbs.  It is updated as new data becomes available.
