Ten years ago there were 3X more homes for sale in Chicago!

How has the real estate market in Chicago changed over the past ten years? 

Some statistics have changed dramatically, but surprisingly, some factors are very close to where they were 10 years ago.

The most dramatic change in the market has been the inventory of homes for sale. In January of 2008 there were over 15,000 single-family attached homes and over 8,000 single-family detached homes for sale in Chicago. In September 2018 homes for sale hovered at around 6,000 and 4,000, respectively, a downward trend that has become the 'new normal' since 2009.

Sang knows Chicago like nobody else.  He has been a resident since 1974 and has lived in virtually every part of the city. 

As an immigrant, Sang also knows what it feels like to achieve the American dream. Watching his parents work for years in order to achieve their dream of owning a home has made a lasting impression on Sang. The modest ranch house in the West Elsdon neighborhood is a part of Sang's core understanding of what a home can do for a family.
