Wilmette IL Housing Report First-Half 2018, 2017, 2007

Real Estate Agent with Baird & Warner Real Estate

Wilmette had a little dip in its real estate market in 2017 but has recovered in 2018. It continues to be the most popular North Shore village for buyers because of its diverse housing stock, great downtown area, and proximity to transportation and shopping.



Wilmette Real Estate Report

In comparing sales for the first six months of 2017 vs 2018, I also decided to throw 2007 into the mix. Buyers and sellers often ask if Wilmette real estate has returned to its pre-recession numbers and I finally see that Wilmette is getting close.

Several things stand out in this chart. First, the total number of sales was much lower in 2007 - but this makes sense. The market was hot because there were more buyers than sellers so fewer houses to buy. The 2nd line shows the Average Sale Price for each year and this is where you can see that 2018 was, in terms of house prices, an improvement of over 11%. But then you can see that 2018 is just around 4% less than the high mark of 2007. So Wilmette has, at least in 2018 to date, gotten very close to pre-recession numbers.

Do you think we're due for a readjustment period in the coming months?We're noticing a slight shift around here in certain pricing segments.  Helpful to include the 2007 numbers...
