Again? That thing has been bouncing on and off the market the past few years.
I'll take the Mary Tyler Moore house for $2.6 million, please. If you follow the realtor link at the bottom, the price has dropped a quarter million since January
Weird pricing history that probably relates to the conversion back to a single family home; it sold for 1.105 million in 2005 and then 2.8 in 2007.http://www.trulia.com/property/35680460-2104-Kenwood-Pkwy-Minneapolis-MN-55405
That's because they don't live there. They come by and rub it with a diaper.
The price drop is a symptom of the reversal of the suburban migration trend (in many cities, not in all cities). Part of that is cultural (a growing number of people would just rather live in Manhattan than in Westchester; in SF than in Orinda; in Chicago than in Highland Park), part practical (Highland Park is 20-something miles from the Loop, but it's a long 20-something miles). But not in Detroit. The trend hasn't hit that city yet.
Just wait 'til OCP starts their big redevelopment project.
It's very choice.
It's really not that far out; it's on a Metra line to downtown and an expressway runs right past it that'l get you downtown in 30 minutes (or you can go a couple of towns south and hop on the CTA in Evanston). And yet, you're also exactly right; Highland Park feels like it's the damn boonies.
Anything west of Western or North of Devon is the suburbs. Anything past the city limits is Iowa or Wisconsin. But if you want to live in Wisconsin, Highland Park is pleasant enough.
This goes fine with my theory that Southern Illinois starts at Kankakee.
Southern Illinois starts at 95th Street.
Aw man, now I have to crowdfund for THAT.
That works too.
