I've had a recent spike in out of state, and, out of country consumers contacting me about Chicago real estate. My presence on the Internet contributes to the many folks emailing me out of the blue.
Lately, through registrants to our company web site and my blog posts on this site and around the Internet, I’ve been contacted by home buyers from San Francisco, Michigan, Northern Wisconsin, New York City, and Australia to name a few.
In addition, recent transplants from Washington D.C. and Atlanta have begun working with me in the last couple weeks. This year, I’m personally seeing a lot more “out of towners” than last year purchasing properties in Chicago. These are people who have chosen a transfer or actively sought to change jobs to move here.
Chicago clearly remains an attractive option for careers and property shoppers. I don't see this changing anytime soon.
