Makes sense and great to see verified with stats. I have sensed something has turned recently. I've seen apartments leasing within a week, homes under contract in 30 days at good prices, restaurants packed and vacant retail leased in my area of Chicago lately. I don't live in Lincoln Park, Lake View, River North, Wicker Park type area either.

Too bad I don't do anything tech related. A lot of my friends who are programmers or IT people are telling me the market for a nice job in the loop is great right now. Boo.

Yeah. Some of the people I've worked with who have quit or been laid off have found jobs within a week or two usually.
