The Wall Street Journal reports this morning on a new analysis from Coldwell Banker that finds luxury home sales in the Windy City — particularly those selling for more than $5 million — are seeing an uptick in activity. Though the market is hindered by lower inventory in some premium neighborhoods, sales have been improving, according to the report.
“We had such a rough 2009, and all of a sudden, it feels like we’re back,” Coldwell Banker REALTOR® Craig Hogan said.
