The holiday season has slowed, but hasn't stalled, the pace of new listings on the North Shore.
New to the market within the past few days is a 3,700 square foot (lower-level included) 3-bedroom, 3 ½ bath home at 1782 Rosemary Rd in Highland Park, just around the corner from Red Oak Elementary School and West Ridge Park. It's also just a few blocks from the Clavey Rd intersection with US Rte 41.
Red Oak Elementary underperforms North Shore School District 112's median test scores. The property is in the Deerfield High School District, which outperforms Highland Park High School in test scores.
The bank-owned home last sold for $610,000 in December of 2006. It's currently listed for $362,000, almost 10% below the $395,500 it sold for in November of 1999.
According to the listing, the home is "in good condition" but "needs minor cosmetic updates." Property taxes for 2009 were $11,293 after the homeowner exemption.
