Avalon Park Real Estate and Neighborhood Information

Get to know Avalon Park

From shanties on stilts to brick bungalows on solid ground, this small community has stood tall and strong on Chicago's south side over the years and it will continue to thrive for many more to come. Avalon Park is a classic Chicago neighborhood where rows of single-family homes stand on private lots, offering residents a place all their own. Some new constructions instill a sense of modernity in this small section of town, but for the most part Avalon Park is steeped in conventional living.

Avalon Park Real Estate

Avalon Park’s tree-lined residential streets house a large variety of architectural designs and dwellings. Many properties boast individual yards, albeit rather small in size.

Some of the neighborhood’s multi-unit residential buildings are older and could use a facelift, while others have either been nicely revamped or are well cared for over the years. Newer construction townhomes offer beautiful modern designs and living spaces with garage parking and all the amenities of big city real estate, with a price in the mid-$200,000s. On the other hand, older units in the Avalon Park neighborhood sell for as low as $40,000. Generally, though, the lovely brick and stone exteriors that shelter fabulous vintage courtyard condos and half-duplexes are listed for between $190,000 and $230,000. However, the average sales price for a one- or two-bedroom multi-unit home around these parts is just under $100,000.

Private fences and gates are abundant in Avalon Park, enclosing the single-family properties of the neighborhood. Many of the one- and two-story frame houses have small front and back yards that cater nicely to spring gardening, summertime barbeques, autumn leaf piles and winter snow forts. While a detached single-family home with two or three bedrooms in Avalon Park starts around $80,000, places with four or more bedrooms more than double in value, the average selling price being $176,000. Brand-spanking-new three-story townhome constructions are priced in the mid-$300,000s. Houses as gorgeous as these built closer to downtown Chicago go for way more and probably wouldn’t include attached garage parking, making these Avalon Park properties a total steal.
