    • January 2016 Market Update for Sobo

As far as detached dwellings, 1 is pending (1585 Judson), and 2 are under contract taking backup offers (2825 LaGrange Circle and 1795 View Point Road).

        In July, there were 18 new (detached) listings. Out of these, 13 had price reductions as a result of falling out contract but mostly because the original prices had not attracted offers. As of August 20, 8 of these are under contract, but 10 are still waiting to get under contract. A few...
