Lincoln Park town house sales up in Lincoln school district

Townhouses with at least two bedrooms and a family room can be a good option for those looking to be in Abraham Lincoln Elementary School district boundaries in Lincoln Park.  Lincoln is a highly rated public school in which you attend as long as you live in neighborhood boundaries.  Bob and I have represented several families in the district throughout the years. 

Town House sales in Lincoln School District January 1st to October 31st, 2012

Approximate attendance boundaries of Lincoln School

About 49 town house style homes sold so far this year (January 1st to October 31st, 2012).  That's up 10 units from the 39 sold last year same time.  Not a huge bump... but representative of the active year in Lincoln Park for just about all property types.

 The median price for a town house in Lincoln School district is about $525,000.

Three bedroom or more town houses

27 of the 49 sold town houses had at least three bedrooms or more. The median for this classification is about $650,000.  Breaking it down a little more, there were 5 total town house sales this year that had four bedrooms or more.  The median price bumps to $820,000.

A Lincoln Park address and top school trumps the conventional single family home in the "way-out" burbs for many families. This makes town houses in Lincoln Park a popular housing segment.
