Some home buyers look at the current real estate market and are paralyzed by fear. Others find it as scary as the ghost trio, pictured above, outside Edwards Florist.
Some buyers are more frightened by Winnetka's reputation as an upper-bracket community. Boo! There are currently half a dozen homes for sale in Winnetka for less than $500K, including a newly-listed 3-bedroom, 2 ½ bath mid-century at 1250 Willow Road, priced at $399,000.
If you're headed to Winnetka from the city, exit the Edens Expressway on Willow Road eastbound to give the kids a view of the Halloween decorations at Edwards, 917 Willow Rd. Spend a few minutes chatting with the locals at Edwards and you'll find that Winnetka's a pretty welcoming place.
