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.
