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 Climbing

Though prices dipped in the middle of 2016, the median sales price for a Roscoe Village condo leaped again toward the end of that year. For a time after that, this metric remained high and steady, hovering between $420K and $440K. As of 2018, prices have started to climb sharply, rising higher than $460K. 

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 around 2 months, making it a market that tips in the seller's favor. 

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