There are dozens and dozens of distinct community areas within the City of Chicago. Uptown is just one of them. Recent industry stats for Chicago communties show many local shifts in home prices, condo sale activity, and overall market activity. Listing times are huge; expired/cancelled listings are at high levels. It seems like between 1995 and 2003, all ships rose with this new century's first demographic tide (the Baby Boom.) In the past two years, Uptown, like a lot of other 'hot' localities, have had to adjust. Prices are off, market activity is way down, and everyone has to wait until the traditional seven year sales cycle kicks back in. But the demand numbers are very good, (Echo boom generation/immigration,) the metro area is still growing, and future economic prospects look above-average. Lakefront location still matters in Chicago. But even in one City neighborhood, there can be several demographic trends going on at the same time. Spillover from Andersonville helps Uptown, High densities in some locales can be a negative. Single family homes in good neighborhoods are prize possessions. Condo units in good buildings, where there is actually a functioning condo association, likely will hold their value. The real estate sales cycle traditionally has been seven years. That is SEVEN years, not two or three. Watch your local numbers, they tell the story. ... more
