Chicago IL Market Statistics Update - September 28, 2009

Good Morning!

Here's our Chicago Market Stats Update, based on data compiled Sunday evening, September 27, 2009.

The Autumn in Chicago seems to be bringing a bit of moderation to Active Listing Inventory, Sales Volume, and Average Sales Price - for now.  However, Pending Sales jumped this past week - an encouraging trend, or just a blip?  The next few weeks will tell the tale!

Average Market Time is still way too high.  Expired Listings bounce up and down each mid-month week, but, in reality, may be down long term - fewer home sellers are pricing their properties to sell ridiculously high, and many of properties listed actually sell, and, along with that, fewer expire.

The Absorption Rate - the theoretical time to clear existing homes-for-sale inventory, fell below 11 months in the North and Northwest Side of Chicago Neighborhoods we serve most frequently..  Very encouraging!

The Percentage of Homes Selling in an Estimated Six-Month Marketing Time Frame broke the benchmark 40% level - very good news!.  Earlier this year, that number was in the upper 20's!  Indeed, we have come quite a long way!

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.
