How did townhouses do in 2010?

*In 2010 the median price of a Lincoln Park towhhouse was $540,000. This is down from 2009 median price of $568,000. Our MLS system ( shows 172 closed units entered in as "townhouse" style.

According to a couple of our industry sources there are around 3000 townhouse units in the Lincoln Park community area in Chicago. The townhouse is a "style" of housing that describes an attached single family home that basically sits on it's own parcel of land and does not have neighbor units attached above or below. The units usually share common walls somewhere in the house. Townhouses can be organized in a condominium association with governing by-laws and assessments or can be fee-simple (much like a single family detached house).
