Sold! First time buyers choose single family home in great Lincoln Square location

We recently represented buyer clients on the purchase of 2140 W Montrose, a single family home on a wide 37 foot lot in the absolute heart of Lincoln Square amenities. The asking price was $450,000 and this was not our listing.  The purchase contract is out of attorney review period and is pending closing.  The location on the Lincoln Square, North Center border near Montrose and Lincoln is an urban paradise.

The 2140 W Montrose lot has a huge backyard and side yard.

The home was renovated in 2007...little to do but move-in. The owners can add to the home over time.

We love this location! The house is literally next door to the best of Lincoln Square:  Wells Park, Sulzer Library, Old Town School of Folk Music...and most importantly, across the street from Julius Meinl Cafe!

Welles Park last summer. 5 min walk to the play lot from the house!

Although some may find Montrose too busy, this house is located on an almost exclusively residential block lined with higher-end renovated and new construction homes.  One re-sale house on a smaller lot across the street sold for around $850,000 quickly last year.  When in the front of the house, you don't notice an overly noisy street...and you lose yourself in the huge backyard!  These buyers took the time to see the house rather than let a Montrose Avenue address turn them away.

Three bedroom homes in a four block radius of 2140 W Montrose have about a $520,000 closing median price over the last 12 months. This is a nice deal for a renovated, wide lot home with room in the price and market to improve the house if wanted.

Please contact Bob and me to find and purchase homes on the North Side of Chicago.
