The statewide median price for Illinois homes was up for the first time since 2007. The median price rose .02 percent, the first time it's been up since September 2007.
Now, it may not seem like much, but it's better than another downtick.
During the same time, statewide total home sales (which include single-family and condominiums) in January 2010 were up 14 percent to a total of 5,483 homes sold. This is compared to 4,809 the year before.
