|Ravenswood Gradens is a popular Lincoln Square neighborhood west of Western Avenue and East of the river.|
13 single family homes closed over 2017 in the Ravenswood Garden neighbor with a bonkers median sales price of $1,050,000. 11 homes sold over 2016 with a median price of $655,000. Even in high flying 2007 before the financial crash six homes had closed for a median price of $700,000. Seven homes sold for over one million dollars. The highest prices sale was a full gut renovation at 2451 W Eastwood Ave, Chicago, IL 60625 for $1,115,000.

20 single family homes sold over 2017 with a median price of about $650,000. The Manor price appears much lower than their near neighbors to the east. But one story charming brick homes can catch up to $875,000. That's right... no second story. In 2016, 28 homes sold with a median price of $575,000. In 2007 before the crash 22 houses closed with a median price of $547,000.
There are pockets of older frame houses that are a little cheaper near the fringes of North Kedzie, West Montrose and West Lawrence that keep the median price down. One controversy brewing in the neighborhood is proliferation of new construction homes in this designated Historic District.
