Every month in my newsletter I look at a particular statistic. This month I took a peek at year-to-date numbers. In addition to County-wide stats, I went more in-depth with particular areas. These numbers are for single family homes from January 1 to November 30 for each of these particular years. And please keep in mind that rising and falling median home prices DO NOT reflect your home’s value raising and dipping but merely that the mix of homes that is selling goes up or down.

You’ll see areas that are up and down like Bolingbrook where 2009 saw more sales and now another dip, but there’s also the opposite where 2009 dipped but this year bounces back up (Lockport). For the most part, however, the number of sales in 2010 are down from this time last year. I’ve indicated the change for the current year’s sales volume only (and remember, that’s just number sold- nothing to do with the median value). Of the areas looked at, only Morris (slightly) and Lockport (a lot)  have improved.

(Did I leave your town out? Want to know about an area that I didn’t cover? Just ask! I’d be more than happy to run the numbers and send you a report.) The next time someone’s telling you how bad the market is or how much it’s rebounding….you can throw numbers at them and really impress them!
