House price indexes are estimated for 851 census tracts in the City of Chicago using a Fourier repeat sales estimator. Locally weighted regression allows price indexes to be estimated for submarkets with small numbers of sales. Annual appreciation rates are higher between 1990 and 1996 in neighborhoods close to the city center with large minority populations, high concentrations of poverty, and many vacant homes in 1990.
