McKinley Park Real Estate

McKinley Park is a slow and steady kind of Chicago neighborhood—isn’t that the type that wins the race? But seriously, McKinley Park has been developing through generations of working-class families that first settled the land in the 1830s. Now, over a century later, McKinley Park is still a cozy, family-focused neighborhood with affordable housing, on the cusp of being on the rise. The residential streets reveal an appealing mix of old and new structures, where modern townhomes occasionally sit catty-corner to century-old homes.

New townhouses, smaller apartment complexes, and two- to four-story flats line the avenues next door to neighborhood parks. A variety of smaller bungalows, raised ranches, and single-family homes round out the housing options in McKinley Park. In general, the homes include spacious living areas, reasonable property values, and a short commute on the Stevenson Expressway (I-55) to downtown Chicago.

Generally, the average sales price for a one-bedroom condo in McKinley Park is $209,000, but you can easily find places in the mid to upper $100,000s. Two or three-bedroom units average around $278,000 with a few in the $350,000 to $375,000 range. Detached single-family homes with three bedrooms sell for as low as $90,000, but can reach into the $400,000s. While not common for the majority of McKinley Park housing, some of those century-old historic homes are valued at a million dollars.
