Speakers from Coldwell Banker, OneChicago joined ABC 7 Chicago to discuss growth
During the month of October, home sales in Illinois jumped 34% compared to last year.
Prices are also up. The statewide median for October was $233,000.
All of this is happening during the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting economic downturn.
Sue Miller, designated managing broker at Coldwell Banker Real Estate Group McHenry, and the 2021 Illinois Realtors president, joined ABC 7 Chicago Sunday to talk about the real estate market and what's driving this growth.
Tommy Choi, past president of the Chicago Association of Realtors and co-founder; Keller Williams of OneChicago; and Geoffrey Hewings, emeritus director of the Regional Economics and Applications Laboratory at the University of Illinois spoke, as well.
