Clarendon Hills Real Estate - Home Values are Climbing

Real Estate Agent with ADT Security Services

Property values in Clarendon Hills, IL are increasing.  Yes, you read that right...increasing.  The data covers the last 3 years and shows that although the number of homes sold is down, the values have increased.  The chart below shows the decline in detached single family homes sales from 2005-2007.

Clarendon Hills Home Sales

The data above confirms what the national media has been saying about the real estate market.  It IS true, Clarendon Hills has shown declines in the number of homes sold just like the rest of the country.  As a percentage, home sales are down about 33% during this period.  Where the news reports make their mistake is with the broad generalizations regarding the home prices.  Below you will see what has happened to local home values over this same period of time.

Clarendon Hills Home Prices

The average value of a home in Clarendon Hills has gone up over each of the last two years.  Prices have increased by a total of just over $137,000.  In other words, properties in 2007 were worth about 20.4% more than in 2005.  This information shows that although the number of homes sold is down considerably, the values of homes have increased considerably as well!

As the national media reports the doom and gloom, the local data shows prices have been climbing.  The reason is that real estate is LOCAL, not national.  Each state, county, city, and neighborhood will have varying property values.  Consult your DuPage County Realtor to get an accurate home valuation.

This information was obtained from the Multiple Listing Service of Northern Illinois and the Mainstreet Organization of Realtors.  The data is considered to be accurate, but not guaranteed.  The search included only detached single family homes.

Originally from Hinsdale and living in Dallas, I am familiar with Clarendon Hills.  Dallas has also experienced a decline in sales and an increase in value.
