Forest Hills of Western Springs Great block and location, walk to town and train. This home was listed in 2005 for $769,900 and was on and off the market for a total of 819 days.

The closing date this year was July 25, 2009 and the home was sold by an agent in town. Many homes are selling for prices seen in 2003. This is just one more example of houses having lost some of their appreciation. Home is on a 57 x 187 lot and has 4 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths.

5 year comparision of sales in Western Springs

I was thinking that this year had been a lot better than last so I looked at the sales that had closed. I was surprised to see that we have had 46 closings reported to the MLS from Jan. 1, 2009 until June 30, 2009. In 2008 80 homes were reported sold during the same time and 59 in 2007 and 80 in 2006 and 92 in 2005. So, we have had the least amount of closings in the first half of 2009 than any other year in the past 5 years. 9 homes closed for over a million in 2008 compared to 5 for this year.
