Real Estate Agent Peter Fugiel's 2008 market outlook report for the Chicago area sets out a pretty thorough analysis of the local market conditions. On the whole, a pretty positive assessment and an interesting read. American real estate is still right up there with other high demand world markets. American real estate, like oil, scarce commodities, fine art, and an American college education, are all still in wide demand. The full report is available on my web site.
Set aside any discussion of climate change for a moment. It’s winter. It’s Chicago. It snows. As a homeowner, you owe it to your friends, family, neighbors and delivery people to keep the sidewalks free of snow and ice.
