CHICAGO—The recovery in single-family home prices has begun to strengthen in most areas of Cook County, according to a new study just published by the Institute for Housing Studies at DePaul University. The research center analyzed data from Cook County Recorder of Deeds and the Cook County Assessor’s Office and found that prices jumped 9.3% year-over-year in the second quarter.

Still, the recession did put home prices in a deep ditch, and they remain 34% lower than at the height of the boom.
