Chicago Tagged on List of Rising Real Estate Stars

May 07, 2014

Chicago real estate for investorsChicago was just listed along with Miami and Dublin as one of the top places to buy now before the market picks up steam and luxury homes in these great locations see big price jumps. Analysts from Candy & Candy, Savills and Deutsche Asset & Wealth identified 12 cities across the globe, including developed and developing cities, where residential property price growth could outstrip those seen in prime world cities over the next few years.

This report, which was shared on, is primarily aimed at seeing where high-powered buyers will be headed in the future. The report is also designed to help investors determine the benefits that could be gained by investing in cities that don’t currently yield high inflows from wealthy individuals. This marks Chicago as a rising second-tier city with the potential to show strong residential property price growth, meaning that investors who seek alternative locations for their real estate purchases have the opportunity to see more rewards as the population of high net worth residents is smaller.

So what does this mean to the everyman or the common home buyer looking to buy a new home in Chicago? There may be more potential focus on Chicago for movers and shakers, but it’s just that right now: potential. There’s a chance that money may move into the city if investors feel that the big fish are headed this way. Of course, that cash influx could boost the overall investment market, but it’s a “maybe” kind-of-thing. If you’re looking to buy your next home in Chicago, now is still a fabulous time to buy and you might get some extra appreciation. If you’re looking to purchase a luxury home, though, you might want to put some consideration into the current options that are out there, such as Michael Jordan’s Highland Park mansion.
