Gresham Real Estate and Neighborhood Information

Get to know Gresham

The heart of the south side of Chicago, Gresham is a neighborhood in transition with a bright future ahead and a rich history behind it. Community groups and public parks are on the front lines of revitalization. Providing a place for Gresham residents of all ages to participate in sports and be active, the neighborhood parks offer numerous programs and even a 12-lane bowling alley – to cover every recreational interest. Adult social clubs, teen groups and day camps for kids all encourage community bonding and are a great way to meet the neighbors. Some of the park facility programs focus on personal fitness with aquatic exercise classes and workout centers, but mostly the Chicago Park District works to supply places where Gresham residents can hangout and have fun with fellow community members.

Gresham Real Estate

Gresham is the home to St. Sabina Church headed up by Reverend Pfleger, who has spearheaded initiatives to revitalize the area. As a driving force in improving Gresham’s outward appearance, both the church and Reverend Pfleger have been a crucial part of the neighborhood’s recent transformation. This includes the current construction of one of the biggest single-family home developments in the city at West 87th Street and Parnell Avenue. Along the neighborhood’s other blocks sit cute brick bungalows, simple one- or two-story homes with front porches, raised ranches, duplexes, and some mid-rise residential buildings. Many Gresham properties have small yards with private fences, and a decent number of trees and greenery surround the lots.

You can buy a two-bedroom condo or townhome in Gresham for as low as $25,000 if you shop around, but the average sales price is closer to $60,000. Other townhouses in the neighborhood that are well-kept or offer more space are priced in the upper $100,000s. Detached single-family homes also range in price with some traditional frame houses listed for $50,000 or $60,000 and other larger two-stories and new constructions costing as much as $350,000.
