how’s the

market ?

2nd QUARTER 2016

We hear this question all the time, and we’re sure you do too. We thought you might like to know how we look at our current market conditions. New construction housing starts in the U.S. in June exceeded predictions, with residential starts increasing 4.8 percent in June from May 2016. In the Chicagoland area, home sales in May 2016 were up 13.8 percent from May 2015 with median prices rising in the same time period. Homes are selling about 4 percent faster than last year. The average days on market in June 2015 was 92 in comparison to June 2016 when the days on market figure was 88.

PRICES The median sales price in the nine-county Chicagoland area increased 4.1 percent from $222,000 in June 2015 to $231,000 in June 2016. In Chicago, the median sales price increased 3.4 percent from $280,000 in June 2015 to $289,450 in June 2016. For new construction properties, the median list price increased from $496,403 to $559,000 from June 2015 to June 2016.

how’s the

market ?

2nd QUARTER 2016

INTEREST RATES Mortgage rates have continued to remain at low levels for homeowners and buyers in the second quarter of 2016, even dropping below some of the first quarter of 2016’s numbers for a 30-year fixed rate. Freddie Mac has reported that levels have been staying at their low mark for the year, beginning April 7, 2016 at 3.59 percent for a 30-year fixed rate and decreasing to 3.48 percent on June 30, 2016. Source: Freddie Mac – Interest Rates from 1/7/16-6/30/16

OUTLOOK FOR SELLERS

The outlook for sellers remains positive, with inventory levels still low. Prices continue to increase, maintaining an ideal market to enter for sellers.

OUTLOOK FOR BUYERS Interest rates continue to remain at historically low levels, which should encourage buyers that it is an optimal time to own a home.

IN SUMMARY 

Momentum on new construction activity and new construction price increases continues to rise

Favorable interest rates remain at near historic low levels

Days on market are down from the same time a year ago

The Luxury Market is slower in the second quarter, however still healthier than a year ago

A LETTER FROM THE CHAIRMAN It is with overwhelming gratitude that I write this note to you. Our annual Week of Kindness is a special and meaningful time. It is a chance to give back to the communities we serve and care so much about. By working with our hands, KoenigRubloff brokers and employees connect with terrific organizations, and we are inspired to do more to make real changes. This year I watched in awe the incredible acts of generosity, and the outpouring of love and support that our agents and employees gave during the Week of Kindness. This year exceeded our efforts last year by far, and I could not be more proud of our KoenigRubloff family. Preparing meals for those in need, packing food, doing landscaping work, collecting clothing and book donations,
