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 Has Rebounded to Near Record Highs

We saw one of the sharpest price jumps in recent memory occur in early 2018, when prices reached a high of nearly $470K. Condo prices continued to climb slowly but surely throughout 2019 and into 2020, with the median sales price in Roscoe Village reaching a high near $480K in spring 2020 before leveling off. As the start of 2021, we saw prices come down just as precipitously as they climbed in in 2018, down to just above $430K. And in response to the limited inventory of the summer of 2021, prices have come right back near their former highs, to about $470k as of fall 2021. 

2. Condo Prices are Expected to Hit New Highs, 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. 

As of fall 2021, inventory in Roscoe Village sits between one and two months. We expect prices to remain high or continue to rise in this situation, due to the extremely limited supply of condos available. 

3. The Average Condo Spends Fewer Than 60 Days on the Market

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 and risen fairly consistently, with the median fluttering between $1.2M and $1.3M as of fall 2021.
