Evanston IL Real Estate Report in 2014

The Evanston Illinois Real Estate Market continues to improve over the last three years. In the period of January 2013 through December 2013 sales of Single Family Homes and Condos are up 28% to a total of 1,101 properties sold.

Usually during the season from Thanksgiving through the beginning of the following year the sales market slows down as people celebrate holidays. This year we did not see this happen. People are still actively looking for homes to purchase and are keeping us Realtors busy showing them houses and condos.

At this time in Evanston IL there are 83 single family homes available on the market and 130 Condominiums. There are also 52 Single family homes under contract and waiting to close as well as 67 condos. These properties will become closed soon and this is unusual for this time of year.

Also there are 19 multiple dwelling buildings like two or four flats actively for sale on the market and 7 under contract waiting to close. This is very good news because in the last few years we saw these multiple family residences become almost totally stagnant and this change all points to signs of a strong Real Estate Market in 2014.
Evanston has some fine middle and elementary schools in our district 65. In the Elementary category Great Schools rates Dewey, Orrington and Lincoln very highly, a 9 on a sale of 1 to 10. Haven middle school is highly rated too. Our High School Evanston Township High School is also considered one of the best. ETHS is a four year school on a 62 acre campus established in 1883. It is in our district 202 with 265 staff members and a majority of the teachers have a Masters Degree or beyond. To quote the motto of ETHS and their mission statement:
“Embracing its diversity, ETHS dedicates itself to educating all students to their fullest potential”

Another highlight of Evanston is Northwestern University. Which is considered one of the best Universities in the country.
