The Wilmette market has seen a downward trend in total homes sold over the past 3 years:

 

Home prices have also declined since a spike in the market in the spring of 2018 when prices and sales rose significantly. The reason is hard to pinpoint and there are varying opinions. Many people feel high property taxes - that are rising - are a primary factor. Millenials are not as quick to make the big suburban move and have been staying put in the city.

 

 

 

Whatever the reason, the result is downward pressure on home sales and prices. Seems like a perfect storm for buyers to do well here particularly factoring the continuing low interest rates.

 

Price your home to sell and don't worry about "wiggle room." Buyers are keenly aware of home values and won't overpay in today's climate.

 

Wilmette has been a steady rock in the North Shore housing market for many years. Of all the villages, Wilmette attracts buyers because of its proximity to the city, easy transportation, good schools, and a vibrant downtown. I'm hoping this downturn is just a short blip.
