Scott - I was talking to another local realtor recently and she said that the inventory of homes for sale in the St. Charles market stood at about 4 months and that 6 months of inventory is considered the standard. She said more inventory (homes for sale) was needed to satisfy demand. She also said that the median home sale price in St. Charles was the highest in the area and could go higher. Thoughts?

Nice presentation. Supply is definately low, if demand continues, prices will go up for sure. I'm not sure I would have combined Wild Rose and the Timbers. They are a somewhat different product.

STC- I think you're right, they're different, but I only have so much in my video can that I felt they were close enough to give a sense of value. Brian-The data set I review combines Campton Hills with St. Charles. When comparing January 2011, 2012 & 2013, the months supply of detached single family homes in that blended area decreased by essentially half to 6.5 months. Some neighborhoods have more inventory, some less. With regard to median prices, Geneva actually wins on that score with a median sale price of $315K, $20K higher than the median in St. Charles in the 12 months ending in January 2013. Mean average price is where St. Charles exceeds Geneva $337K to $319K. With regard to direction, some areas have LOW inventory levels that may coax buyers to pay more and sellers to actually sell, so yes I believe it is realistic to expect higher appreciation than we have in the past several years.
