Chicago IL Market Statistics Update - April 27, 2009

Good Morning!

Here's our Chicago Market Stats Update, based on data compiled Sunday evening, April 26, 2009.

Continued stability with the Active Listings figure.  However, Sales Volume, in step with the Average Sales Price showed yet another drop this past week.  

Average Market Time fell below 200 days, but continues high in the North and Northwest Side of Chicago Communities we serve most frequently.  Pending Sales increased, while Listings Sold and Expired Listings fell, typical for mid-month readings.

Absorption Rate - the theoretical time to clear existing homes-for-sale inventory, again improved, while the downward trend in the percentage of homes sell within a normal six-month marketing time frame continues.

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.
