We recently viewed a private home listing in the Roscoe Village neighborhood or North Center. Private listings can only be viewed by brokers with access to the MLS. Sellers list "private" for any number of reasons including seasonal considerations or they simply do not want the home listed on the million third party sites that feed from our MLS.
The neighborhood remains one of the more desirable on the North Side due to well rated schools and outstanding dining, bars and amenities. The median price of a house is nearly $1.2M over the last year. Homes considered a value under the median price sell fast! We have to be on top of all private, pre-MLS and newly listed homes on the MLS every day to give our buyers a chance.
|I lived in Roscoe Village in the 90s / early 2000s. The famous kiosk marked the diverse neighborhood of those times. The socioeconomic demographic has changed in the last 20 years.|
Looking back at 2015 about fifty-seven homes sold with median price just over $1,000,000.
