home prices: Dwindling Foreclosures Raise Home Prices - 01/06/17 07:44 AM
Foreclosures are falling as home prices rise 
 
The number of bank-owned properties on the market has dropped 31.1% year-over-year.  Illinois is right in line with a 29.7% decrease in foreclosures.  Does this have a correlation with rising home prices?
 
After the real estate crash, bank-owned properties flooded the market.  Good news for those home buyers looking for a bargain, bad news for sellers watching their property value fall.
 
Over the last couple of years, foreclosure numbers have been dropping and as a result, we've seen home prices rise.
 
 
Now you can't expect prices to increase to pre-crash levels as that's likely what caused problems in the first place.  However, homeowners … (0 comments)

home prices: Low Housing Inventory Raising Prices in Chicagoland - 01/04/17 07:38 AM
Home sellers seeing higher prices as availability remains low
The Chicagoland real estate market has been seeing declining inventory since the start of the year.  Currently, there is a 4.1 month supply of housing.  Anything between 3-6 months would be considered stable and we're right at the low end of that.
 
Buyer demand in the Chicagoland market continues to outpace the availability of homes for sale.  As the demand increases and supply decreases, prices rise as a result.
 
National housing inventory is at 4 months so we're right there with the trend.  This marks 18 straight months of decline.
 
Median home prices in Chicagoland for the month of December were at $222,825, up … (0 comments)
