Berwyn IL Real Estate Market Report, week of January 19, 2015

13 homes sold in Berwyn IL

There were 7 single family homes, 3 condos, and 3 multi-family properties that sold this past week in Berwyn IL. The average sales price for the single family homes sold this week was $183,657. The average time on the market was 114 days.

Because these statistics are only for one week and for all of Berwyn, it may not tell you what is possible for a specific home. These are just the general market statistics of what happened in the last week in Berwyn IL real estate.

Least expensive home reported sold in Berwyn IL

The least expensive home reported sold this past week in Berwyn was a 3 bedroom, 1 bath brick ranch home in the 1500 block of Harvey Ave. It sold for $115,000 as a foreclosure in 148 days on the market with an asking price of $133,500.

It was sold as-is, and the interior pictures show that the home is in need of updates throughout. These buyers seem to have gotten a good deal for much less than the average selling price for the neighborhood!

Most expensive home reported sold in Berwyn IL

The most expensive home reported sold this past week in Berwyn was a 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath brick bungalow with a complete 2nd floor addition on the 3700 block of Ridgeland Ave. This professionally rehabbed home was upgraded throughout. It sold for $337,500 in just 15 days on the market with an asking price of $359,900.

Sold Deal Of The Week in Berwyn IL

In my opinion, the best deal of the homes sold this past week in Berwyn was a 3 bedroom, 2 bath brick Cape Cod single family home in the 1900 block of Maple Ave, in Berwyn's "Gold Coast". It was updated throughout and sold for just over asking price, $223,000, with the sellers contributing $3,000 toward the buyer's closing costs.

Foreclosures & Short Sales in Berwyn IL

4 of the homes sold this past week in Berwyn were foreclosures, and 1 was a short sale.

Today there are 23 foreclosed homes for sale in Berwyn IL and 16 homes listed as a short sale in Berwyn IL.

Inventory & Absorption Rate in Berwyn IL

Today there are 127 single family homes for sale in Berwyn IL. If homes in Berwyn continue to sell at the same pace and no more homes hit the market, it will take 4 months to sell all the available homes. This statistic is for all homes in Berwyn and based only on this month's activity. Most people consider a housing market healthy if there is a less than 6 months' supply of inventory, so we are bordering on what is considered a Seller's Market.

New Listings in Berwyn IL

There were 26 new properties (2 condos, 1 commercial space, 17 single family homes, 1 vacant lot, and 5 multi-family properties) to hit the MLS this week in Berwyn IL. See all listings here!

This Week's Hot New Listing in Berwyn IL

The best deal in my opinion of this week's new listings in Berwyn is a 3BR, 2BA brick Queen Anne Bungalow on Riverside Drive. It sits on a 33x125 foot lot and has a new kitchen & baths, refinished hardwood floors, and nice finishes. And the best part... It's priced at only $239,900! See all pics & details here!

Looking Forward...

21 properties: 2 condos, 3 multi-family and 16 single family homes were reported as going Under Contract (contingent/pending) this past week in Berwyn IL... Not too bad for the middle of winter! Currently there are 9 condos, 32 multi-family properties, and 91 single family homes in total that are Under Contract in Berwyn.
