With its tree-lined streets, small-town charm and easy access to Chicago’s hustle and bustle, Park Ridge has long been one of Chicagoland’s most desirable communities. Stephanie Szigetvari, Vice President of Brokerage Services for @properties in Park Ridge, touts housing diversity as another reason that home buyers should consider the northwestern suburb.
“With small bungalows, traditional Georgians, large custom homes and a wide range of condos, Park Ridge caters to a variety of homebuyers and budgets – from first-time buyers to up-sizers and downsizers,” says Szigetvari. As homeowners cycle through various stages of life, their needs will undoubtedly change. Park Ridge’s product diversity accommodates those changes, making it easier for residents to establish roots and remain in the community. That connection is one reason why a lot of people who grow up in Park Ridge tend to move back, Szigetvari notes.
@properties’ latest market report profiles a rehabbed ranch in Park Ridge as an example of the options Park Ridge provides residents. For buyers who are looking to downsize but still want a single-family home with a yard, Szigetvari points to the growing trend of updating 1950s ranch-style homes. The single-level residences are a great opportunity for move-down homeowners to reduce square footage and upkeep, while staying in town, close to friends and family.
