More home for the bucks in West Chicago

The basics: 6,000 square feet, 5 bedrooms, all with full private baths, 2 additional half-baths, a 4-car garage, a custom home on a 1.6-acre site in a small subdivision surrounded by forest preserve.

We're talking serious money, no? Not really. The asking price for 1N546 Burr Oak Rd in West Chicago is just $425,000, and there are some interesting aspects to the price.

The first is that the newly-listed home sold for $575,000 in October of 2003. The second, and even more interesting, is that it was purchased for $385,000 just 6 months ago after two years on the market. It had started at $649,900 and been reduced multiple times.

Koenig & Strey's Gaylyn Genovesi has the listing.
