Mapping 10 Great Portage Park Homes Currently on the Market

View as Map

Filled with a ready supply of well-maintained, turn-of-the-century bungalows and renewed retail momentum, Portage Park has become a huge draw for those seeking single family homes. The re-energized Six Corners commercial district at Irving Park Road, Cicero Avenue and Milwaukee Avenue, spurred on by a city-sponsored master plan, has helped attract new tenants to the area including Aldi's, Culver's and Community Tavern. Along with proximity to the Blue Line and Metra, the new commercial activity has helped boost real estate values in the area -- 3-bed, 2-bath units have jumped 10.5 percent in the last two years, and 11.3% in the last year, according to figures obtained from Philip Schwartz, a broker and President of The Portage Park Neighborhood Association. To provide a sense of what's available in this fast-growing northwest side neighborhood, we put together cross-section of on-the-market homes and condos.

Chicago, IL 60630

The classic 5-bed bungalow goes heavy on chromatic diversity, with a different shade dominating every room. Your design choices may vary, but after a $30K price drop this spring moved the ask under $300K, it's a solid value for 3,000 square feet.

Don't let the untreated wood porch fool you --this $510,000 gut rehab is anything but your typical neighborhood home.
