Looking at the local market over the past 12 months, the indicators suggest continued rising prices (some areas more than others), some increase in average days on market (but not everywhere) and a mixed bag when it comes to monthly supply. For all of the data mentioned in this article, we are looking specifically at single family homes with rolling 12-month data unless indicated otherwise.


Chicago Area

Looking at the Chicagoland MLS as a whole, the median sales price is up 3.2% year over year with a median sales price of $325,000. Though the monthly supply is also down 5.3% year over year (1.8 month supply total, indicating a strong sellers' market), the average days on market per listing has increased 7.5% to an average of 43 days.



Zooming in on local markets, Hinsdale is outperforming the market in increased percentages in all three categories:

  • Median sales price: up 13.1% year over year with the median sales price at $1,300,000
  • Average days on market: up 43.6% year over year and an average of 69 days on market
  • Monthly supply of inventory: up 21.1% to 2.4 monthly supply


Clarendon Hills

Clarendon Hills is telling us a slightly different story:

  • Median sales price: increase of 4.8% year over year to $750,000
  • Average days on market: down 8% to 46 days
  • Monthly supply of inventory: down 25% to 1.5 monthly supply…Interestingly, inventory was down 45% in Q1-2024 versus Q1-2023.
