Real Estate | Barrington Home Prices Up from January, 2017 Despite Decreases Forecast for Illinois

Home Newsroom Real Estate | Barrington Home Prices Up from January, 2017 Despite Decreases Forecast for Illinois

According to the latest numbers looking at 12 months of activity, home prices in the Barrington area were up 4% in January of 2018 compared to the 12 months measured in January of 2017, with the median detached single family home price at $520,000 in zip code 60010.

That’s despite the National Association of REALTORS’ “Home Price Outlook” which projects the State of Illinois will see home prices drop by 2.1% in 2018 while prices will increase by an average of 1.9% nationwide.

NAR’s nationwide projection of 1% – 3% growth in 2018 home prices is a marked slowdown from the 5% – 7% percent annual gains of the past five years. They’re basing their estimates on four factors including current housing market conditions, interest rate effects, employment and construction momentum plus impact from the new tax law, now in effect.

“The new tax law reduces the limit on deductible mortgage debt and limits the deductibility of the real estate tax up to $10,000. These two provisions are expected to have an impact on the housing market,” according to NAR economists. “Moreover, a higher standard deduction may lessen the incentive to purchase a home, as fewer consumers will utilize mortgage interest and property tax deductions.”

A National Association of REALTORS report for Illinois predicts that mortgage rates will likely increase as The Federal Reserve continues to raise short term interest rates in 2018, causing a -1.1% impact on Illinois home prices. According to NAR calculations, there will be a -1.9% impact on Illinois home prices in 2018 due to the new tax law.

Here in Barrington, the median detached single family home sales price in zip code 60010 was $520,000 in January of 2018, when you look at 12 months of activity. That’s up 4% from $499,900 in January of 2017, which is a look on the bright side, despite NAR’s numbers for Illinois.

With the spring market on the horizon, we’ll continue to track and share these numbers to help you stay informed about home price trends throughout the Barrington area.

Well, it’s official! We just got the call from Dr. Brian Harris at the @Barrington_220 school District that it’s our first “Snow Day” since “E-Leaning” became a thing we know so well. BUT it’s actually a “Distance Learning Day” so our students still have to report to school, from home. God bless you, teachers!
🤪
So it goes that the “Snow Days” we once knew where snow actually cancelled school for the day are now a thing of the past. At least there will be some good sledding & snow man building today! Please share & tag #365Barrington or email Liz@365Barrington.com if you capture any fun snow pics.
⛄️
Got something big you want to do this year? Might as well Jump! No better day to begin than today but, if it involves being outside, don’t forget your snow boots. And your snow pants. And your Bernie mittens. This January 26th is going to be a snowy one in Barrington!
❄️
If today is your birthday, you have something in common with Eddie Van Halen. He was born on this day in 1957. Van Halen’s song, Jump was released in December, 1983, back when big hair was all the rage and I was 10 years old.
🎸
We’re sharing Jump and Van Halen’s classic music video as our song of the day. Take a look plus find our stories from this day in #BarringtonHistory TODAY at BarringtonDaily.com #LinkInBio or right here: https://wp.me/p1NGbX-1eGz
