The 2022 / 2023 Chicago Real Estate Report

by Amanda on January 23, 2023

As your Chicago real estate market experts, we take immense pride in releasing our annual Chicago Real Estate Report.  2022 was quite the year with a rollercoaster ride of interest rates, soaring inflation, the war in Ukraine causing global impacts, and a litany of conflicting real estate headlines in the media.  It’s time to see if our predictions would hold correct, or maybe not!

2022 Chicago Home Partner Real Estate Predictions

Since the launch of our podcast, we’re leaned into video as it allows us better contextualization of such complex topics.  We’ve also worked to dive deeper into the numbers, separating and discussing not only the North and Northwest neighborhoods – but the downtown market as well. You can view the entire podcast below or just tune in to specific topics that interest you.

Chicago Home Partner had another successful year in 2022 with over $58M in combined sales thanks to the trust our clients continually place in us. We are once again humbled by your support, and as always, we are honored to assist you and yours in any way possible.
