The State of Real Estate in Rogers Park

Today I had a meeting with Rogers Park Community Development Corporation and shared  “The State Of Real Estate in Rogers Park”. 

Rogers Park is located on the Northside of Chicago. Its boundaries are the Lakefront on the East, Ridge Avenue on the West, Devon Avenue South to just a little North of Howard on the North. Loyola University is located in Rogers Park.

Real Estate in Rogers Park consist of Single Family Homes, Condominiums, Townhomes and some Multi-Family 2 -4 unit buildings.

Prior to 2007 Rogers Park had a lot of buildings that were converted from rental to condominiums. As a result most of the real estate market was being supported by first time home buyers buying new construction condominiums.

The following data covers the Residential Real Estate Market in Rogers Park over the past 24 months.

 I have included data for both Single Family Homes and Attached Homes which include condo and townhouse sales data.

As the data suggests there were fewer sales in the past 12 months for both Single Family and Attached homes in Rogers Park. This maybe the result of the First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit or just due to fewer qualified buyers or a combination of both.

When buyers were looking to buy they tended to look at pre-foreclosure short sales or foreclosures 21%-43% of the time.

Single Family Home prices actually appreciated 3% over the past 12 months while Attached homes depreciated in value 12% during the same period.  Clearly the  shear number of  distressed Attached Home Sales was the main reason for this reduction.
