Asked by Abigail, Chicago, IL Mon Nov 19, 2007

conditions in Chicago? Whether you have to pay for them or not, I want to know where regular folk as well as professionals get there information on how the city is progressing or regressing. Obviously information is available in a wide variety in this field, are there any good sources you have found that are nontraditional or I wouldn't have thought to look? Thanks!

I run my numbers direct from the MLSNI that include Chicago area sell prices, variances from last year compared to this year, sales increase/decreases, etc. This is actually the best way to see numbers first hand by Chicago towns/neighborhood. For overviews, trends and narratives my choices are Crains, RealEstateJournal, Inman Real Estate News, USAToday.

Abigail, I find http://www.chicagocondosonline.com to be a good resource for market statistics - they are published monthly. If you are working with an agent, they can subscribe you to the site. It also provides detailed information on a number of buildings in the city.

The Chicago Association of Realtors also has updated their site - http://www.chicagorealtor.com. Illinois Assocition or Realtors is also a great resource for issues and statistics related to the real estate industry in Illinois.
