We're working with clients selling their city town house and looking for a single family home in Whittier School district of Oak Park.  Let's take a look at home sales for this area of Oak Park - our neighbors to the southwest.

About 50 single family homes closed in Whittier School district over 2016.  The median price was about $433,000.  A median priced home will usually get you 3 to 4 bedrooms, 1.5 to 2 baths in a well conditioned typically vintage house.  About 35 homes sold in Whittier over 2015 for a median price of about $369,000.

47 homes sold in 2014 for a median price of about $430,000.

There were three million dollar home sales in Whittier over 2016.  The highest priced sale was 518 N East Ave,  Oak Park, Illinois 60302 for $1,250,000.  The ornate vintage home sits on a 100' x 173' lot.
