Skokie downtown condo sales

We have clients looking to live near their workplace just north of Chicago.  They'd like a "walk-able" area and they don't want a house.  Skokie's downtown offers condo apartments with plenty of cultural events, restaurants and services nearby.  We were focused on the higher-end, luxury units. They can be impressive for this sometimes overlooked "urban" suburb.

In he last 12 months, 253 total condos have closed in Skokie.  The median price is about $173,000.  About 37 units sold withing a few blocks of the downtown center (Lincoln Ave and Niles Center Road) and close to the Oakton-Skokie Yellow Line.  The median price is still about $173,000. 

The highest priced condo sold in the downtown area this year is 4953 Oakton St Unit 703, Skokie, Illinois 60077 for $485,000.  Built in 2006 the spacious, contemporary three bedroom condo measures over 2400 sq/ft on one floor with a huge terrace and two garage spots included. Several two bedrooms units sold in the 4953 Oakton building in the mid $200s.

Several local joints with cafe seating give the Skokie downtown a welcoming and lively feeling.
Cafe seating in a downtown atmosphere is a must have for many of our clients

Skokie has beautiful planters throughout their downtown.

Lots of new sidewalks and benches

Several landmarks like Saint Peter's Church dot the downtown.
