Illinois Market Trends for 2016

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Suburban

In Illinois, home spent less time on the market than in years past. 

The average sales price is up which is great for our state's recovery process.  

The total number of sales is also up BUT .... inventory is down 15% from 2015. We need inventory so we can have more sales!


Call me to discuss either buying or selling!

 I expect with less inventory the prices are up, hopefully you will get more inventory to pick up your market!

I absolutely love your infographic, Lyn Sims!  Great information in one great graphic.  I agree with Yolanda Cordova-Gilbert - and am with you on the low inventory - we need more to pick up our markets!!
