There is, as you would expect, a substantial gap between the highest and lowest priced new listings in Chicago's near-west suburbs.
At the high end of the price range is 335 East First St in Hinsdale, priced at $4,199,000. The listing description touts the 6-bedroom ,7 ½ bath,7,350 square foot home as "The finest of the fine. The best of the best." As is the case with many "new" listings, the home has been on and off the market since July of 2009.
The lowest-priced new listing this week is a 1-bedroom condo at 6337 North Roosevelt Rd in Berwyn. It too has been on and off the market for an extended period - 4 years. The unit's last sale was in 2000, for $54,500.
The median price of this week's new listings, $239,900, will put you in a "lovely 3-bedroom, 2-bath brick Cape Cod" home at 3320 Arthur Ave in Brookfield. This "new" listing has been on and off the market since July of 2009. It sold most recently for $138,000 in May of 2000.
