North Park Real Estate and Neighborhood Information

Get to know North Park

Home to Northeastern Illinois University and a mere 10 miles north of the Chicago Loop, North Park is an academically active neighborhood with a family focus. Bound by the North Shore Channel and the North Branch of the Chicago River, North Park has the remote feel of a peaceful suburb with the added benefit of a short commute to downtown. For the most part, North Park's residential streets are dominated by traditional, brick bungalows and historic homes. There are some condos and townhouses in the neighborhood that attract area students and young couples. Laid-back bakeries, cafés and eateries abound in this part of Chicago, although you won't be hard up for a good Swedish meatball or Asian noodle dish if that's what you crave.

North Park Real Estate

There’s an immediate charm and friendliness to the North Park neighborhood that makes you feel welcomed, whether you’re just moving in or have been here for decades.

Sandwiched between the picturesque parkland and riverbanks on the east and the quaint solitude of Bohemian National Cemetery on the west, North Park feels more suburban than it does cosmopolitan. A mix of middle and upper class families and young professionals and single working adults inhabit the mostly residential, tree-shaded streets of North Park. And with two major universities situated within the neighborhood borders, there is a hearty population of students spending their days in—and oftentimes living in—the community as well.

The majority of North Park is residential area dominated by single-family homes, but a limited number of condos and townhomes exist, catering especially to the student populace that is a vital part of the small neighborhood’s livelihood. Traditional bungalows mingle with historic homes, low-rise flats and newer condominiums.

The average sales price for a one- or two-bedroom condo or townhome is $195,000, but you should be able to find one for under $150,000. Two or three-bedroom units average around $340,000 in North Park. Detached single-family homes start at $335,000 for a three-bedroom. The average sales price for a house this size around here is about $430,000, but can reach into the $600,000s, with some five or six-bedroom properties selling for just under a million dollars.
