Larger homes and homes and homes with outdoor space certainly faired well during the pandemic. Fueled by low interest rates and limited commutes the trend to push out a little from the city center continues. Sauganash sits about eleven miles from City Hall downtown and offers a variety of home and lot sizes in a sleepy environment. We've seen a lot of pre-MLS offerings in this neighborhood this early season as well.

Thus far in 2021 six homes have closed in Sauganash.  There are thirteen homes presently under contract. The median price of closed and under contract homes is about $460,000. This looks like a very good value for homes in Chicago with a highly rated schools district.

Currently there are fourteen homes under contract and only two available for sale! The two available are the two highest priced homes of the sixteen. Nine of the sixteen homes are priced under $500k. It appears that everything continues to sell.

In 2020, a whopping 97 homes closed in the Sauganash neighborhood. Unit sales were up 26% over 2019. The median price of a sold home was about $490,000. The highest priced sold home was 5792 North Rogers for $1,825,000. 77 homes closed over 2019 with a median price of about $517,000.

Going back to 2015, 93 single family homes closed with a median price of about $430,000.
