Chicago High-End Real Estate on the Upswing

Luxury Real Estate

Despite speculation that the luxury residential market in the city of Chicago, $1,000,000+, will experience a slight down-turn as consumers sit-back and wait to see what happens with the stock market, the statistics paint a different picture. This information was taken from the Multiple Listing Service showcasing that the first-half of June could turn-out to be an equally strong month for luxury sales despite the ups-and-downs of the S&P, NASDAQ and DOW.

Statistics Show an Upswing

JANUARY — 39 Properties went under contract – 34 have closed so far
FEBRUARY — 43 Properties went under contract – 32 have closed so far
MARCH — 79 Properties went under contract – 63 have closed so far
APRIL — 50 Properties went under contract – 30 deals have closed so far
MAY — 64 Properties went under contract – 21 deals have closed so far
JUNE – 34 Properties went under contract

Consumers Still Participating

With interest rates still historically low and opportunities to purchase a luxury home at what we hope is the “bottom of the market,” consumers have the confidence to continue participating in this real estate marketplace.
