I looked up closed single family home sales for the past two months in Ravenswood and found...2. This was very surprising.
However, out of 33 returned listings in Ravenswood (Montrose to Foster south to north, Clark to Leavitt east to west) 2 were closed sales and another 9 were under contract. So, 30% of the homes returned in the query for the last 30 days were sold or under contract. Not bad.
We are not to the end of first quarter 2010 yet, so we may see 5 or 6 total. I will call 12 closed homes in these same neighborhood boundaries in second quarter 2010.
