Tell me about the Chicagoland real estate market

Who’s got some numbers or some data I can look at?

Is it hot? Or not? I’ve got to go/no-go selling a home in the north side suburbs in the next few months.

Who’s got the skinny?

You know the national websites for data. Chicago magazine runs trend stories.

General trends, as I understand them: shortage of inventory in good city neighborhoods and close-in suburbs with good school districts; really big suburban mansions (Lake Forest, Oak Brook) are selling for less than a few years back.
