If you’re looking for a home and not having luck finding anything in your price range in Andersonville or Lincoln Square, you might want to consider Independence Park. The boundaries for this Chicago neighborhood are from Central Park to Pulaski and from Addison to Montrose.
The homes tend to be larger because the lots are bigger which gives you a lot more air, light and space especially with the houses being further apart. Many of the homes have decks on them with nice size yards in addition to garages. There are a lot of good parks in the area including Independence Park itself. Also, there’s a farmers market on Saturdays which is extremely highly-rated and many ethnic restaurants in the neighborhood.
If you’re looking for a good neighborhood as an affordable alternative to Andersonville or Lincoln Square you definitely want to look into Independence Park. I’ve helped three buyers in the last two months to purchase over there and they’re seeing great opportunities in that area.
