Chicago’s Dangerous Neighborhoods and Some Positive Numbers for Chicago Real Estate

sudler-sothebys-logo24 June 2009 ? Today we have news on both extremes concerning Chicago’s real estate market. On the very bad side…yesterday The Sun Times, Chicagoist, and many others reported Chicago has 4 of the most dangerous neighborhoods (in Chicago’s case they are actually sections of well defined neighborhoods) in the country. They are: #2 State St. & Garfield (Washington Park), #19: 66th and Yale (Englewood), #24: 58th and Wallace (Englewood), and #25: 60th and Winchester (Englewood). You have to wonder what the numbers would have been if they had lumped Englewood as one neighborhood. On the very good side…Chicago home sales were up 11.5% in May when compared to April. However, it is not all good news; we still have a long way to go?sales were down 27.5% when May is compared to May of 2008. See Robert John Anderson’s complete post about the data for more details.
