The 27 single, detached homes sold in Glenview-Golf during January 2014 represented an 8 percent increase from January 2013, when just 25 homes were sold, according to statistics provided by the Mainstreet Organization of Realtors and the North Shore-Barrington Association of Realtors.

Meanwhile, the median home sales price increased in Glenview-Golf during January. The median price went up 29 percent to $600,000 from $465,000 in January 2013, according to the statistics.

“Home prices in suburban Chicago have continued to experience healthy, sustainable growth in the first month of 2014,” said Michael Parent, president of MORe and Vice President of Operations for Burnet Title’s Chicago Region. “One of many factors driving increased prices is a continued lack of inventory, which will likely improve as people come out of hibernation and the market starts breaking open in March or April.”
