The conventional wisdom in real estate right now is that it’s a seller’s market because of low inventory (homes for sale) and high demand (lots of buyers). And that’s right, up to a point. It really doesn’t mean that there are few homes for sale. It only means that there are more buyers than sellers. A serious buyer DOES have options. There ARE homes for sale. In fact, there are currently 24 listed homes in the Glen plus several more new construction properties not yet move-in ready.
The Glen is a north shore residential and retail development in Glenview Illinois. It is composed of several distinctly different neighborhoods, all with luxury homes within walking distance of Glen Town Center, the community’s shopping and dining hub. I’ve described the Glen this way: It’s like you uprooted the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago and dropped it in Glenview. The lifestyle, especially in the townhome neighborhoods, feels “city”, but the map says “suburbs”…as in great schools, less traffic, and hassle free living.
So about those homes for sale. There are seven single family homes for sale ranging in price from $650,000 to $1,699,000. The attached properties include townhomes, row homes, duplex villas and condos. The home prices in this category range from $430,000 to $810,000. Homes listed for sale in the Glen range in size from 2000 square feet to nearly 5000 square feet. Some of the homes are fourteen years old. Some are brand new. In short, a buyer has options. And they are good options.
My proprietary website, www.homesintheglen.com identifies every home for sale, and it includes a wealth of information about each one. Because the site is fed by the Multiple Listing Service which includes homes that are under contract but not yet closed, I suggest you contact me to determine exactly which Glen homes are still available that meet your needs.
