In 2011 the average price of a house in Barrington Hills was $650000, in 2012 that dropped to $615,000, but in $2013 the number was at $660000, even better than in 2011. This is a 7.3% increase. Overall closed sales were down however, as 2012 showed a spike in sales with 66, a 61% improvement over 2011 when just 41 sales were reported. In 2013 there were 51 sales, an increase over 2011 but a 22.7% decrease from 2012.
