Now that I have a 3 person family team we are able to go out of our normal service area which spans around Oak Lawn/Evergreen Park to the northeast, La Grange area to the near west, Lockport, Lemont and New Lenox to the southwest and Oak Forest to the southeast and everything in between. Those are just general parameters and we do go out of them regularly, but for this article we will stick to our smaller area. Here are the top 5 southwest suburbs that we work in with the most amount of single family home sales for 2012:
Our Northern IL MLS used to be the largest in the nation and it is still up there. Some states are consolidating into statewide MLS's. So just for fun, here are the top 3 towns in our MLS in amount of sales in 2012:
- Aurora - 1,663
- Naperville - 1,484
- Plainfield - 1,103
- Elgin - 1,075
- Joliet - 1,012
Wow! Who knew that these towns had this kind of sales volume? We do work in Joliet and Plainfield once in a while but I never knew they had these amounts of annual sales. Of course, our main service area is Orland Park real estate, so if you're interesting in buying and/or selling in the southwest suburbs give us a call at 708-536-8200 or use the Contact Form.
