Good Morning - and Happy Labor Day!
Here's our Chicago Market Stats Update, based on data compiled Sunday evening, September 6 2009.
Active Listings numbers continue their downward trend this week, while Pending Sales, as well as Closed Transactions, fell a bit. The fall in Closings at the end of the month is unusual, but the gross closed numbers are not significantly high to indicate any long-term trend, in my opinion.
Average Sales Price bounced back up a bit last week - let's see if it will continue. Average Market Time still very high.
The Absorption Rate - the theoretical time to clear existing homes-for-sale inventory, continues downward in the North and Northwest Side of Chicago Neighborhoods we serve most frequently! The Percentage of Homes Selling in an Estimated Six-Month Marketing Time Frame continues to approach 40%. Hitting that target would be a significant benchmark, one not seen here in over 18 months!
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.
