Illinois home sales up
"This year thus far, we’ve been looking at many, many months with double-digit increases in sales year over year. We’ve been now looking at a couple of months where prices have started to inch back upwards."
The Illinois Association of Realtors says statewide home sales totaled 15-thousand-268 for June, making 24 consecutive months of year-over-year sales increases. The statewide median home price in June was 170-thousand dollars. Hewings says home sales improved in both the Chicago area and downstate Illinois.
