It's price reduction season on the North Shore

North Shore homes for sale often are pulled from the market before the holidays and relisted as "new" after the first of the year. Genuinely new first-time listings start appearing with greater frequency after the Super Bowl – or earlier depending on what kind of a season the Bears have had.

Although you won't see many first-time listings at this time of year, if you're paying attention you've seen a flurry of price reductions, some for significant amounts, far too many for less than the price of a monthly Metra pass. A decent price reduction strikes me as worthy of attention as a first-time listing.

The 6-bedroom Victorian home at 645 Kincaid St in Highland Park came on the market nearly a year ago at a list price of $1,800,000. After the latest in a series of price reductions, it's now asking $1,129,000 and the listing copy blares "MOTIVATED SELLER SAYS MAKE AN OFFER!!!"

The home is on a more than half-acre lot in a convenient location, less than a block from Ravinia Elementary School and Roger Williams Park, and two blocks from the Ravinia Metra stop.

Coldwell Banker's Nancye Shaevitz has the listing.
