Marquette Park Real Estate and Neighborhood Information

Get to know Marquette Park

Generations of Chicagoans have grown up and raised their families in this comfy and traditional, yet diverse south side Chicago community that is centered about an extraordinary 300-acre park of the same name. Marquette Park is a large neighborhood with all the services and advantages of a mini-city. The park itself is no regular green grass playground — it features a full golf course and driving range, surrounded by a system of scenic lagoons and a two-and-a-quarter-mile walking/jogging trail. Residences in Marquette Park are mainly brick bungalows and other single-family homes. As is customary in the southern reaches of Chicago, the lots are tightly-packed with rear garages and enough backyard for barbecuing and letting the kids play outside. And because there is such a large number of families that live in Marquette Park, several elementary and high schools have been established in the area. Solid restaurant and retail business exists along the neighborhood's main border streets, where residents go to shop for groceries, see a movie and grab a bite.

Marquette Park Real Estate

While there is some light industry and there are a couple of commercial strips on its borders, Marquette Park is primarily a residential area composed of quiet streets, trim lawns, and a mix of wood frame and brick homes. You’ll see raised-ranch and 1950s-style Georgians, but the predominant style in these parts is the classic Chicago bungalow.

This has long been a dependable place to find a solidly-built home at an affordable price. Even the newest construction in the area offers single-family homes starting well under $300,000. While multi-unit housing options are not as common in this Southwest Side Chicago neighborhood, vintage condos and brick courtyard apartment buildings dot the area with prices starting in the low $100,000s.

The average sales price for a detached single-family home in Marquette Park with three bedrooms is around $185,000. More space—meaning more bedrooms—can up the price a bit, with the majority of houses costing between $150,000 and $300,000.
