|We pointed out the new construction condo building at 4805 N Claremont in Lincoln Square last year. "Off MLS" listings went up recently for $575,000 to $699,000 for the three bedrooms condos.|
5-6 new condo and apartment projects are planned for Lawrence Avenue in Lincoln Square. This is the first pricing I've seen for any of the recent new projects.
I discovered the off market listings today through my TAN Agent Network. This is a paid site for top 10% brokers to list and request properties "off market". If you are looking for homes or condos in and around Lincoln Square please contact us. We may have more options available then what is listed on the MLS.
|4o block of 7th Street La Grange... steps from a Starbucks!|
Most houses maintain the distinct original character of the well established Chicago suburb. The majority of the houses look as they have always looked (mind for expansions and interior renovations). Home owners often opt to live with sometimes quirky lay outs in exchange for great location and "city life".
|Home sales in the downtown La Grange area roughly West Ogden Ave to West 47th Street and North Gilbert/Willow Springs to East Ave.|
104 homes have sold in the greater downtown La Grange area over 2016. The median price of a sale is $655,000. The many restaurants, bars, services and transportation options attribute to the relatively high median home price. Several friends and colleagues take the La Grange Metra stops to downtown Chicago in 20 mins.
311 6th Ave , La Grange, Illinois 60525 for $1,250,000 cash. The 1914 built grand renovated home sits on a huge lot. The lowest sale from 2016 was 119 Hayes Ave , La Grange, Illinois 60525 sold cash at $71,359. The bank owned (REO) home looked in need of tear down.
In 2015, 109 homes sold for a median price of $550,000.
2014, 95 homes sold for a median price of about $550,000.
2013, 86 homes sold for a median price of about $510,000.
The increased median sales price in 2016 mimics the housing recovery for many transit orientated ares and the introduction of more new construction homes for sale over the last couple years. The red hot Chicago market over the last couple years has afforded growing families to sell city condos and buy their suburban homes in areas like La Grange downtown area. Many of our clients are taking advantage to buy their "move up" house.

|Our clients closed 5039 W Berwyn in Forest Glen just before the Christmas holiday. The wide lot features large side yard and spacious backyard! They will expand the existing small house with a second story.|
|The hiking and bike trails along the North Branch of the Chicago River are a welcome amenity of this pocket of Forest Glen.|
|Bike or cross country ski the trails!|
A big thank you to real estate attorney Patrick Loftus who worked on two relatively complex closings with our clients when selling their vacant land and helping purchase this home subject to court approval.

|New condos at 5061 N Lincoln Avenue rise from the former one story commercial building. A similar building is going up just a block south near Western Avenue.|
|A quirky double lot property (red fence) hangs on. A frame home sits back deep on the lot.|
|The development at Lawrence and Oakley is coming along in the former Wintrust Bank parking lot.|
|New 6 unit building at the corner of West Winona and North Western Ave|
Chopo Chicken will move into the space at 2460 N Clark. I checked out the Facebook page and it does not look to have opened yet. It will be a great addition to the diverse offerings of North Clark Street. It's one of my favorite areas to eat in the city.
