The month of September is now in the books, which means numbers are just now starting to be released regarding how the market fared last month. According to Redfin, the Near North Side saw the highest number of sales in September, tallying 261 sales overall, which is good enough to be a 5.24% increase compared to a year prior.
Chicago’s West Town neighborhood was a close second in total sales, hitting 151 sales overall for the month. However, that actually represents a 6.79% decline compared to September of 2015. If you’re wondering which two neighborhoods saw the largest year-over-year gain, Logan Square saw a 60% jump compared to September of 2015, while Streeterville wasn’t far off at a 59.18% increase in year-over-year sales.
In terms of just condo sales, the Near North Side and West Town also took home the two top spots, recording 253 and 119 total sales respectively, while Lincoln Park (107 sales), the South Loop (93 sales), and Streeterville (78 sales) round out the top 5.
