State of the market
  • As the economy continued to improve and unemployment falling, the U.S. real estate market remained strong as we headed into the holiday season. Although not as frenetic as at during the summer, buyer demand remained high, bolstered by low mortgage rates and low housing inventory
  • Chicago's Near North Side market continued its recovery from the 2020 fallout. The downtown condo market still has high inventory mostly of older units that are in need of updating. 
  • New condo construction and recently renovated units remained very popular with buyers
  • The city's housing inventory was down 17.2% , from 9,985 homes in November 2020 to 7,266 homes in November 2021
  • The supply of inventory decreased 43.5%, from 4.6 months in November 2020 to 2.6 months this year, indicating a market that is favorable to sellers
