Single-family home sales up consistently across Chicago neighborhoods

The city saw a 30% increase in single family homes last quarter of the previous quarter, and the increase was consistent across the top 20 neighborhoods I track in Chicago Housing Quarterly market report. Condo and townhome sales increased 25% over last quarter.

Of the top 20 neighborhoods:

  • All saw increases in single family home sales over last quarter
  • 17 of 20 saw an increase of 25% or more over last quarter
  • 15 of 20 saw an increase of 10% or more over the same period last year
  • Among condominium and townhome sales, 18 of 20 neighborhoods saw an increase over last quarter, but just 8 of 20 had an increase over the same period a year before.
  • While sales are expected to increase in the third quarter of any year, the effect was certainly more pronounced in 2011.
