According to a recent analysis by RE/MAX, more homes changed hands more quickly in the seven-county metropolitan Chicago real estate market in August, as compared to previous years.

The average number of days that homes sold in August spent on the market before a sales contract was signed fell from 165 days a year ago to 139 days in August. That marks the lowest market time for the metro area in any month since December 2007, RE/MAX said in a press release.

“The inventory of homes for sale and the days needed to sell a home continue to shrink, which is a positive sign for home values going forward. It also indicates that the market is being brought back into balance,” said Laura Ortoleva, a spokesperson for the RE/MAX Northern Illinois real estate network.

The RE/MAX analysis also showed that all seven counties and Chicago recorded higher detached-home sales in August compared to the same month last year. Will County led the metro counties with a 32 percent sales increase, followed by McHenry at 26 percent, Cook and Kane at 25 percent each, Lake at 20 percent, DuPage at 10 percent and Kendall at 6 percent. Detached sales in Chicago rose 8 percent.
