Home Prices in Chicago South Real Estate for May 2016 – Detached

Real estate market data for Chicago South real estate provided by Millie Lumpkin of Exit Strategy Realty.

Overall, the Chicago metropolitan area as a whole continues to experience a seller’s market. This is a trend that started in fall 2013 and the limit on supply levels has resulted in a 27.7% increase in the median sales price for detached single family homes compared to May 2013. In the most recent 12 months, the median sales price was $229,800 which is an increase of 6.4%. The average days for listing to get to contract is 60 days overall. The trends for the city of Chicago are consistent with the pattern for the area as a whole.

Some south side neighborhoods run against the trend shown in the city overall.  The Beverly, Chatham and South Shore neighborhoods actually experienced a decline in the median sales price over the last 12 months.  The inventory of homes in some of these south side neighborhoods also reflect a more balanced market in terms of supply.  Note also that most of the neighborhoods listed have a higher average of days from listing to contract.

Listed below are some select neighborhoods south of the Loop.  For other Chicago neighborhoods and suburban areas, click here for a full list of year to date market activity by community.
