Sauganash is a residential pocket on Chicago’s northwest side that allows its residents to remain in the city they love while enjoying the larger yards, forest preserves and quiet that many buyers typically pursue in the suburbs. At the same time, the community’s residents are still closely linked to downtown Chicago’s offerings with easy access to Metra commuter trains, CTA transport and the Edens Expressway.

With a median single-family home price of approximately $425,000, Sauganash offers great value. Over the past year, real estate sale prices have ranged from $200,000 for foreclosed to just over $1 million for a rare new construction, custom home. Condominiums make up only a small part of the housing stock in this neighborhood, with 9 real estate closings in the past 12 months.

Stretching between Bryn Mawr and Devon on its North-South axis and between the Pulaski and the Edens Expressway on its East-West Axis, Sauganash abandons Chicago’s typical grid and has many diagonal streets and larger lots.

In addition to the local real estate, home buyers are attracted to the schools in the area; Sauganash Montessori, Sauganash School for the Young Years, Sauganash Elementary, and Queen of All Saints Elementary.

Further, Sauganash has great local offerings such the Greek cuisine served up at East of Edens, the Basque and Andalusian cusine of Café Marbella and the vegan and organic creations of the Balanced Kitchen. Major chains are represented by Starbucks and Whole Foods and major retail and malls are only minutes away.
