Evanston Real Estate Market May 2016

The May 2016 Evanston median sales price was up 15% and inventory is down 7% so there is less competition out there right now for sellers. It’s a good time to list when inventory is low and buyers are still out looking for those end of August moves!

Evanston Market Continues to Soar: North Shore Market Update

North Shore Market Update

Here is some helpful information about the North Shore Market:

Sales outpace active listings by a healthy amount up to the $ 700,000-799,000/$800,000-899,000 price range throughout the North Shore, with a few scattered exceptions.  Evanston is still experiencing a strong seller’s market, as sales surge beyond current listings all the way through the $1,499,000 mark.  The very upper brackets (over $2,000,000) continue to struggle throughout the region. Available luxury inventory is extremely high in many towns.  While there has been a slight uptick in sales in these upper brackets, we are looking at years of inventory in many towns.
