Yes Chicago, There’s An App For That
If we could describe St. Charles in one word, it would be vibrant. This western suburb houses an array of cuisines, historic venues, a bustling downtown along the scenic Fox River, and an incredible community. It’s easy to call this idyllic and charming city home, so @properties did just that. Here are 10 reasons why we love St. Charles:
The uber-luxury market had a record year in 2018, with 73 homes selling for at least $4 million in the Chicago area, according to Crain’s Chicago Business. Among the factors driving these sales were high-end new construction and strong stock market performance through the third quarter of ’18.
Chicagoland home prices were up a moderate 3.2% in 2018. But @properties identified a number of neighborhoods and towns that outperformed the market. One of those towns is Elmhurst, a western suburb where the average sales price was up 5.6% and median price was up 6.5% year over year.
