The Glencoe, IL real estate market has had a very nice spring!

April sales were up 75% from a year ago, average sale prices are up 8.8% the same time last year, and up 42% from last month.  Total April inventory was just a touch higher from last month, yet  21% lower than last year (112 properties for sale in ’11 vs. 143 in ’10).  It’s still high enough to indicate a  buyers’ market: 14 properties sold, meaning Glencoe had an 8 month supply of inventory.  This the town’s lowest amount of inventory seen since last month, and the second lowest since May, 2008.
