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 Remains High

After plateauing in 2015 and 2016, condo prices in Roscoe Village have climbed fairly steadily for the past several years, give or take a few quick, notable dips (such as in late 2017 and, more recently, late 2018). We saw one of the sharpest price jumps in recent memory occur in early 2018, when prices reached a high of nearly $470K. As of fall 2019, condo prices have leveled off somewhat but remain high and climbing, with the median sales price in Roscoe Village coming in just above $460K as of the time of this writing. 

2. Condo Prices are Expected to Remain Steady, 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 between three and four months, indicating that it is a market that is fairly balanced for both buyer and seller. 

3. The Average Condo Spends Fewer Than 100 Days on the Market

The average condo in Roscoe Village spends just more than three months on the market - more specifically, around 95 days or fewer - as of fall 2019. This marks a notable slowdown from the same time last year, indicating that the area is becoming more balanced for both buyers and sellers.

The median sales price for a single-family home in Roscoe Village held relatively steadfast from 2015 into 2018, fluctuating between highs of $1.22 million and lows right around $1.05 million. In late 2018, however, prices took a sharp downward turn, falling to just below $1 million for the first time in more than three years. Since then, this metric has bounced back, with the median hovering around $1.15M as of fall 2019, down from a recent high of $1.20M earlier in the year. 

2. The Sale Price of Single-Family Homes is Expected to Maintain Based Upon Months Supply of Inventory
