Logan Square Real Estate

logan-square_desI spend quite a bit of time in Chicago’s Logan Square; showing homes, indulging in a delicious meal, meeting friends for craft cocktails and live music. There is something pleasantly contradictory about the gritty urban streetscape and hipster vibe set among towering, leafy trees lining wide boulevards. I first discovered Logan Square more than 20 years ago; it somehow feels that the neighborhood hasn’t changed a bit, yet has evolved into its own special place.

Logan Square real estate is a blend of old mansions, new condos, and everything in between, but is best characterized by tree-lined streets with bungalow-style homes and elaborate mansions. The recent influx of buyers to the area has triggered a boom of residential real estate development, including condominiums, lofts, town homes, three-flats and single-family homes at a variety of price points.

Though larger homes that reflect Logan Square’s rich history may top the $1M mark, there are many real estate bargains still to be had in this Chicago neighborhood, with smaller bungalows starting in the high $200s. Investment properties are available in the form of multi-family dwellings with two to four–flat walk-ups a good option for the individual who seeks income property, and they can be found in the mid $100,000s on up to $600,000. Vintage rehab condos are also available in Logan Square.

I’m often asked, “Who is your go-to handyman?" "Help, I need a plumber at 1am!" Where can I find a great home cook for my party?” "Where do I buy a fab bottle of bubbly for my special someone?" After 30 years in the business, I’ve gathered quite a list! That’s why I created my Little Black Book–a comprehensive, 80 page guide of my most trusted vendors, service providers, and partners in Chicago.

Q: There are so many neighborhoods to choose from, how do I know which neighborhood is best for me?
A: I suggest to clients that they make a list of what they want their day to day life to look like. That list might include things like: easy access to public transportation; ½ mile from the the lake; tree-lined streets with mostly single family homes; close to bars and restaurants; top level public elementary school; trendy, up and coming… start big, winnow down and prioritize. I also suggest that clients look at a few places in several neighborhoods to get an understanding of what each neighborhood offers. It’s all about options, choices and priorities.

Q: Should I work with a real estate agent?
A: Yes, there are several benefits to working with a real estate agent, especially an experienced top drawer agent. Not only will she be able to give you an accurate value assessment for the property you fall in love with, you’ll likely get a better deal if she is a bear in negotiations. And your agent will advocate for your best interests throughout the transaction. You may also get access to properties not yet actively listed – which is especially important in a hot real estate market such as Chicago! Additionally, when working with an agent, you don’t just get access to her expertise – you get access to her entire network of advisors, lenders, contractors, and more.
