Weekend open house pick – Oak Park 4-bedroom for $529,000

800 N Columbian Ave Oak Park IL

The 4-bedroom, 2 ½ bath home at 800 North Columbian Ave in Oak Park surfaces as a "new listing." Like many "new" listings of late it's been on the market since last year and gone through a series of delistings, relistings and price changes.

This is a charming home on a 50 x 124 corner lot with a free-standing 2-car garage.

The home's room dimensions, in most cases, appear to be more than adequate, but you'd never guess that from the brief comments on the listing offered by Redfin agents who added remarks.

The Redfin agent remarks are one of the more interesting aspects of this listing. They differ on some aspects of the home, but generally concur that it "needs updating." The need for updates is, of course, a judgment call and one on which many buyers might well differ from the agents' take.

The home will be open Sunday, July 24, from noon to 2 pm. If you visit this home, chime in with a report on whether, in the context of what's available in the Oak Park market at this price point, "needs updating" is useful commentary.
