Downers Grove single family home sales January 1st to April 14th, 2017 (and other fun stats)

  • 138 single family homes sold thus far in 2017.  The median price for a house is about $375,000.

  • Go back to 2015 and 113 single family homes sold with a median price of $330,000.
Our clients would like at least four bedrooms house with en suite master bath.  66 homes have sold listed with at least four bedrooms and a master bathroom suite. The  median price is  $515,000.  Four bedrooms house sales with NO master bath had a median price of $370,000.  That master suite is costly!

In most Chicagoland markets we saw the unit sale and median price upturn start in 2012. In 2012, only 79 Downers Grove single family homes sold over the same period for a median price of about $267,000.
