North Riverside's real estate dollars demonstrated strong growth in the first three months of 2015 when compared to the same time period last year.  The median sales price for three-bedroom homes was up 35% ($212,000 versus $157,500). 

Another indication of strength in North Riverside is that there are currently 12 homes in this size description listed for sale and 4 of them are under contract and listed as "Contingent".  That's 25% of the active inventory.

As to the larger, four-bedroom or more, single family homes, the percentage of increase, +21%, is good but doesn't really tell a story since only one home sold in 2015 compared to only two of this size last year. 

However, current demand for these larger homes is solid since nine are currently listed as Active, and 5 of them are under contract, 56% of the available inventory.   

Three-bedroom, Single Family homes currently Active:  12 homes

"Contingent" means that there is an accepted offer on the property as to the price, but many other things must be agreed upon before the home actually "Closes".  These may include the results of the buyer's home inspection, final financing approval, the specific closing date, and so forth.  Most "Contingent Homes" will proceed to closing, but some contracts fall through and the home reappears on the market as an "Active Listing".   

 

 "Median Sales Price" is the midpoint between the High price and the Low price and is not the same as the "Average Sales Price".  Since a few high prices or low prices can skew the "Average Price", the real estate industry places more credibility on the "Median Price" to indicate a specific area's home values within a specified timeframe.
