Scottsdale Real Estate

Scottsdale’s neighborhood boundaries are busy commercial thoroughfares, particularly Cicero Avenue on its western edge which bears a heavy traffic volume. But just one block off that busy street you’d think you’re in a quiet suburb. Scottsdale is characterized by the sort of winding streets, cul-de-sacs, sloping curbs and speed bumps that you just don’t see that often in the city.

You won’t find many multi-unit dwellings along the neighborhood’s meandering roads, most of the condo buildings and attached housing are located on Scottsdale’s border streets such as Cicero Avenue, Ford City Drive, 87th Street and Pulaski Road. These units start at $50,000 for a one-bedroom with no garage parking, and go up to $170,000 for a two-bedroom with a garage space.

Many of the detached single-family homes that you will see further into the reaches of the neighborhood are one-story or ranch-style houses, which helps give Scottsdale a unique look for Chicago’s southwest side, typically dominated by bungalows. Still, there are a good number of split-levels and two-story designs, adding to the architectural diversity of the residential streets here. On the high end, you might pay $380,000 for a nice four-bedroom split-level with attached garage and large front yard; on the other hand, a smaller, one-story house with two or three bedrooms could cost as little as $150,000.
