State Of The Market

  • Interest rates went up slightly in February, but are still lower than at the same time last year. According to Freddie Mac, rates may inch up a bit more in the coming weeks, but are expected to remain in the low 3% range for the rest of the year. 
  • Low inventory and high demand continued in many residential areas in Chicago, driving up prices and reducing market time.  Even areas that were hardest hit by political and socio-economic factors last year, saw increased buyer activity. This trend has continued well into March with increased buyer activity. 


  • The inventory of available homes for sale in Chicago is down 9.7%, from 8,328 homes in February 2020 to 7,523 homes this February.
  • The supply time of inventory decreased from 3.8 to 3.3 months, indicating favorable market conditions for home sellers
