How’s the Market?

The 2016 real estate market is off to a solid start in the Chicago area, especially in the luxury sector. Sales volume for homes sold at or above $1 million increased by 8.8% in the first quarter of this year.  Days on Market has also dropped slightly, from 123 days in 2015 to 116 days in 2016.  For a comprehensive overview of how the market performed last quarter, as well as the latest on interest rates, click here.
