2007/01/So When Does Spring Real Estate Market

I’ve been hearing a lot of Realtors say “it’s going to be an early spring”. I read on another local Chicago real estate blog that the spring market actually starts just after the first of the year and runs through June! More traditional Chicago Realtors may say it’s March or April through May. I’ve been seeing an early up tick in listing inquires and showing requests and am starting to believe one other opinion on when the spring market will hit, that is, after the Super Bowl. I should say after the Bears win the Super Bowl! I heard on a local real estate radio show a couple weekends ago that some agents are actually scheduling open houses and showings around the Bears games!

When do you all think the spring market is going to hit this year in Chicago?
