Chicago IL Market Statistics Update - June 29, 2009

Good Morning!

Here's our Chicago Market Stats Update, based on data compiled Sunday evening, June 28, 2009.

Well, the booming increases in Pending Sales, Closed Sales, and Sales Volume, and the decrease in Average Market Time have not continued at their unchecked pace of the last couple of weeks. 

Although Pending Sales remained exactly the same this week in the North and Northwest Side of Chicago Neighborhoods we serve frequently, the other indicators fell a bit this past week.

One key number - listings still take a long time to sell here!  In order for us to truly report a market turn, this Average Market Time must still be brought down - considerably!

Absorption Rate - the theoretical time to clear existing homes-for-sale inventory, fell again this week to just over 14.5 months!  The percentage of homes sell within a normal six-month marketing time frame took a slight step back this week. 

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.

Communities and clients we serve, reside, or plan to reside, in the Chicago Neighborhoods of The Chicago Loop, The Gold Coast, River North, Lincoln Park, Lakeview, Uptown, Edgewater, North Center, Lincoln Square, Albany Park, Ravenswood, Wicker Park, and Bucktown.
