Streeterville & the Gold Coast Among the Top Buyer's Markets in Chicago

Posted by Leo Clark. on Friday, September 26th, 2014 at 1:17pm.

According to Zillow’s monthly Buyer-Seller Index, which was released last week, Streeterville and the Gold Coast—two of the most prestigious downtown neighborhoods—are among the top buyer’s markets right now in the Chicago metro area.

Although somewhat surprising, the report shows each of these two areas having a relatively high percentage of recent listings with a price cut, and a slightly lower sale-to-list-price ratio than some of the city’s neighborhoods with a strong seller’s market, like Logan Square and River North for example.

The index, which uses days on market stats, rate of price cuts, and sales-to-list price ratios to determine market conditions, doesn’t necessarily relate to home values in each particular neighborhood however, as Chicago’s annual home appreciation of 6.9% is actually higher than the national average of 6.6%.   

So what does all this mean? Early indications are that the traditional busy fall market could be especially active in Streeterville, the Gold Coast and in several of the surrounding neighborhoods this year—but only time will tell.

If you’re in the market to buy a condo for sale in Streeterville or the Gold Coast, don’t wait any longer.
