Uber-Luxury Market Off To A Strong Start In 2019

The uber-luxury market had a record year in 2018, with 73 homes selling for at least $4 million in the Chicago area, according to Crain’s Chicago Business. Among the factors driving these sales were high-end new construction and strong stock market performance through the third quarter of ’18.

2019 is already shaping up to be another strong year for the top of the market. Year to date there have been 19 sales at the $4 million mark or higher, compared with 11 sales for the same period last year*. This year’s sales also emphasize the trend of buyers searching for newer or renovated homes featuring today’s finishes and décor.
