In a nutshell, where is the Chicago real estate market today?

Statistics about the real estate marekt are bandied about everywhere, but when my clients ask, they really want to know what’s going on LOCALLY.

The statistics I’m quoting here are based on my selling area- part of Chicago, which is a segment of the Midwest Real Estate Data MLS System.
