Buffalo Grove Real Estate Market Conditions – December 2018

Buffalo Grove Real Estate Market Update

The Buffalo Grove real estate market posted generally solid results for 2018. Detached single family homes and Condos / Townhomes continue to demonstrate “Seller’s market” tendencies with relatively low market times and months of supply of inventory, but both measures improved in the back half of the year. A lack of inventory, increased interest rates and a reduced deduction for property taxes definitely impacted sales as detached homes sales were down by 21 and Condos / Townhomes were equal to 2017. Despite all of the news to the contrary, the Buffalo Grove real estate market is solid and poised for another good year in 2019.
