Golf Anyone? Meet me in South Shore

New Golf Course South Shore – Who would have thought this 10 years ago this would be news for the south side of Chicago. The first African American President is from the south side of Chicago along with his wife (from South Shore). As we now approach 2017, we are having conversations that we only thought we would see in other parts of Chicago. What does this mean for property values? What does this mean for current owners who were here long before the cameras?

As a resident of 10 years, I see the dynamics of my community changing rapidly although I sometimes grow impatient I still remaining hopeful. Click here (South Shore Values) to see the value in South Shore for all product types (single family homes, condos and townhomes).

Will the Obama Library change real estate values in Washington Park?

The Library is coming aren’t you excited! The Library is coming aren’t you excited? Depending on who you ask will depend on what your sentence ends with, an exclamation point or a question mark.  As excited as many people are, will this announcement bring to a struggling real estate market (both in Jackson Park and Washington Park) to becoming a vibrant community that will compete with bordering Hyde Park values. As a born and raised Chicagoan, I am happy this is coming but I don’t want the market to create a false sense of hope for investors, residents and skeptics. Check out the market data from Washington Park and see how the trends are moving; where are values really headed?  Only time will tell…..
