2012

RESIDENTIAL

YEAR IN REVIEW A stable Chicago market has 4 months of inventory; a sellers’ market less than that and a buyers’ market has more. By the end of 2012 we had 3.4 months of inventory which created a strong seller market. This number is down 73% from 2011. Concurrently, prices are still down approximately 35% from their peak in 2006, so this creates a strong value for buyers. Inventory levels have been shrinking rapidly; including the “shadow market” (these are the properties that are in distress and will most likely have to be sold). Investors have been gobbling these properties up either one at a time or buying large packages from major national banks. The lack of inventory in the market, both locally and nationally, is helping to push home prices back up. Most U.S. major cities have already experienced fairly strong Real Estate rebounds. Chicago is lagging behind this trend, but we see the same factors in our market that created these increases in other cities. Some neighborhoods, such as Lincoln Park and River North, did experience price increases in 2012. A much larger group of sellers have had enough time to accept the current market value of their home, which is down considerably. Banks have gotten more efficient with their ever changing requirements for loans. Realtors® have had enough experience with this “new market” to help buyers and sellers navigate the negotiations and closing of a sale. The spring market in 2013 seems to have arrived early in Chicago. Our January sales numbers are up 21% from 2012. Jameson Real Estate had an increase in transaction volume of 55% from 2011, which pushed us just above $1 Billion for the year in residential and commercial transactions.

KEY OBSERVATIONS 2012 yielded the best price versus the costs of rent in history. Rents have skyrocketed, making the prospect of home buying more attractive. Chicago has one of the most affordable housing inventories in the nation, compared to people’s income. A highlight of 2012 was the reduction of inventory.

We are finally feeling the lack of new construction and the absorption of excess inventory. Multiple bid situations and very low market times on appropriately priced homes in desirable neighborhoods were the key indicators.

KEY OBSERVATIONS Cap rates in the single tenant leased sector compressed in the 4th Quarter of 2012 due to lack of available product, more so in investment grade assets below $2 million in value, while demand for investment grade assets remains high. Multi-unit investment properties continue to rise in value

and investment sales of retail properties grew substantially. Investors are looking for new opportunities to diversify and in search of a better cap rate or deal. Banks are flush with liquidity and eager to lend but they are being very selective as to what they are financing.
