Roscoe Village has been called a "village within the city," and it's easy to see why: This quiet little area is home to lots of small boutiques, independent shops, mouth-watering brunch places, and off-the-beaten-path cafes and taverns, each with their own eclectic feel and classic Chicago sense of hospitality. 

Tucked in near North Center and Lakeview, Roscoe Village is bounded by Addison Street (to the north), Belmont Avenue (south), Ravenswood Avenue (east), and the Chicago River (west). Home to lots of parks and other places for children to play, Roscoe Village is also notable for its central location, which makes it easy to walk, bike, or take public transportation to just about anywhere you want to go in Chicago.

Roscoe Village's Current Condo Market

1. The Median Sale Price of a Roscoe Village Condo Is Leveling Off

After leveling off and remaining steady, around $400,000, for the better part of 2016, the median sales price for a Roscoe Village condo leaped again as we moved into 2017. Since then, that growth has stalled, reaching a high just below $440,000. 

2. Condo Prices are Expected to Keep Rising, Based Upon Months Supply of Inventory

The months supply of inventory counts the number of months it would take to sell all of the condos currently on the market if no other new homes were added. It is a theoretical predictor of the housing market's growth and stability. 

Typically, three months of inventory or fewer indicates a seller's market, and we expect prices to rise in this situation.  

A balanced months supply of inventory is about four to six months, meaning that the situation is well balanced for both buyer and seller.

A buyer's market is typically a market that reaches more than six months. Because the number of homes on the market is disproportionate, prices would be expected to drop. 

Currently, inventory in Roscoe Village sits below 2 months, making it a market that tips in the seller's favor. The slope of the decline leads us to believe that prices will continue to climb through the year ahead - albeit at a slightly slower pace than we saw in 2016, perhaps.

3. The Average Condo Spends Roughly 50 Days on the Market

The average single-family home felt a sharp decline in average market time between January 2013 and the middle of 2014, plummeting from 100 to about 30 days over that period. Rates climbed steadily over the course of 2015 and sat right around 80 days through 2016. In 2017, though, average market time increased considerably as the market leveled off; today, the average Roscoe Village home stays on the market for roughly four months.
