As a lot of you know, I am constantly tracking the data behind the local real estate markets where I assist my clients. Lincoln Park has been one of the more stable markets and the numbers that I am about to reveal will also show that this neighborhood is showing great signs of a rebound. […]

2011 in Review – Single Family Home Sales in Lincoln Park, Lakeview, Bucktown, Wicker Park and Roscoe Village

Over the next few days, I’m going to be talking about real estate sales trends for Single Family Homes and Condos in the neighborhoods that I specialize.

Months of Supply – Fall 2011

Months of supply is a terrific barometer on how well a certain real estate market is currently performing. A stable market has around 5 months of supply. If a market has 7 months of supply or more, it would be considered a buyer’s market. Anything less than 5 months of supply, it would be a […]

January is the perfect month to review how a micro segment of the real estate market fared in the previous year.

Howe in Lincoln Park closed on August 10th for $8,500,000, its original asking price. (see details here). 2 separate, monster 6400 sq foot monster condos […]
