Time to Buy a Home in Chicago?

While existing Chicago home sales rose slightly in 2011 (compared to 2010), the increase of 1.3% was not dramatic by anyone’s estimation. However, lower home prices in general make it an easier for people with great credit, first-time homeowners and investors to find great deals on homes in Chicago. In fact our area may be seeing a climb in employment level by the end of the year, as suggested by the U.S. Conference of Mayors, which could spur an interest in home purchases, as well.
