|For our purposes, we'll use the boundaries of West Belmot to West Diversey and North Ravenswood to North Western Avenue. The area west of the river is certainly separated, but there is a cluster of housing there nonetheless.|
|Newer construction and modestly renovated houses stand side by side directly across from Hamlin Park.|
60 detached homes sold same period 2013 in a hot market with a median price of $800,000. The lower median price in 2013 reflects more dated or small homes bought for development.
There were several sales in the Picardy Place community of single family homes southeast of Hamlin Park. These small homes are close to Chi Che Wang Park as well but benefit from the many established leagues and amenities of Hamlin Park. The median price for one of these homes currently is about $475,000.
Condo Sales around Hamlin Park January 1st to September 12th, 2014
|Attached condo sales around Hamlin Park tend to be in buildings built over the last 15 years. However, large vintage buildings like Alcott Prep keep the architecture around the park interesting.|
The most expensive sale was 3203 N Oakley #304, a duplex penthouse unit in a newer construction elevator building. The 2900 sq/ft unit sold for $749,000. Several duplex-down condos along Damen sold in the high $400s to $500s near the park. As one would imagine the lower priced condos in this sales area reside mostly on busy Western, Clybourn and Diversey Avenues.
Over 146 houses and condos switched hands. 5 (two-four flat) multi-unit buildings sold and a couple land deals went down. That's a lot of action around a roughly 3 square block radius around the park!
