Housing market indicators

All of these property level data sets are connected to parcel-level data files from the county Assessors offices that include data on every parcel in the Chicago metropolitan area. All of these parcel-level data sets include historical data and are updated on a regular basis ranging from every week to every year depending on the data set.

Housing Stock Composition

Data on the housing stock provides context about the underlying characteristics of a neighborhood’s housing market and helps in the interpretation of patterns and trends in property sales, mortgage lending activity, foreclosure filings, and completed auctions activity. Understanding an area's housing stock can help determine the appropriate targeted strategies for stabilizing local housing markets, preserving and creating affordable rental housing, and promoting neighborhood investment.
