Chicago home value growth hits another low
Drastically declining home sales are not the only factor hurting the residential market. In May, the value of Chicago area single-family homes grew by 1.6 percent, the lowest growth since October 2015. Prices locally grew at only half the national rate of 3.4 percent in May. Chicago area home prices are still about 15 percent lower than their pre-recession peak in March 2007, while nationwide, homes are 13.5 percent above their pre-recession peak. [Crain’s]
