The Top 10 Housing Markets on the North Shore

by Peter Thomas Ricci

In our final story on home sales in Chicagoland, we take a closer look at the North Shore.


Over the last couple of days, we’ve taken a closer look at both the busiest neighborhoods in Chicago and its suburban markets, and now, courtesy of some interesting data from NSBAR, we’re finally looking at the North Shore.

However, we should make one note on the composite of our graph. Because the North Shore is such a varied, high-income marketplace, we decided to include not only the top 10 markets by units sold, but also by the total dollar volume of sales as well; that way, more expensive markets are more adequately counted.

    How the heck is Barringtn considered the “north shore???”

    Hi Chad,

    good question – your right that geographically speaking, Barrington is quite far from the North Shore, but because NSBAR (which, of course, stands for the North Shore-Barrington Association of Realtors) collects home sales data for the area, we decided to include it in our graph, considering it was not a part of our suburban analysis.
