Why Suburban Housing Markets Were So Strong in 2019
A recent article in Crain’s reports that Chicago suburbs were a major driver of home sales in 2019.
But the strongest suburban markets were places with relatively low-cost homes.
Crain’s found 13 where three indicators improved during the year: more homes sold, faster and at a higher median price in 2019 than in the previous year.
In 12 out of 13 suburban towns surveyed, the median price of a home sold during 2019 was $237,500.
“That’s the price range where things are really moving fast,” said Francesco Campobasso, a Century 21 Lullo agent whose business area includes two of the towns on Crain’s list: Franklin Park and Glendale Heights.
Conversely, the survey also indicates that in 13 other Chicagoland suburbs, more homes sold at a higher median price in 2019 than in the previous year. Go figure.
