Luxury Chicago Homes Are Still Selling

It’s no secret that real estate has been a bit topsy-turvy. But the good news is that Chicago homes are still selling – particularly high-end properties in coveted neighborhoods like Gold Coast, Lincoln Park and Lakeview.
In today’s Chicago real estate market, these high-end homes go from anywhere from $2 million up to $15 million. Looking at these sorts of properties that sold in the last month paints a detailed picture as to what is happening now in Chicago real estate. Upscale Chicago homes stacked with amenities don’t seem to be facing the same troubles as the real estate market as a whole. Along with location, lake views, square footage and large lot sizes go a long way among Chicago homes for sale.
