  • In two new reports Chicago ranks as one of the nation’s most lackluster housing markets.
  • In its report, realtor.com attributes next year’s lackluster real estate market to uncertainty about the U.S. economy putting a damper on both buyers’ and sellers’ outlooks and on shortages in the supply of both new and existing homes.
  • At the opposite end of the list, the metro areas with the biggest price growth were Boise City, Idaho, at 11.1 percent, and Tucson, at 10.3 percent.
