Hi Blair, There are homes currently available on Sheridan in Evanston ranging from $899,000 -$2,495,000. So "affordable" to you needs to be defined for me! The home for $899,000 has 6 bedrooms (plus one in the basement), 4 full baths and 2 half baths. It is a 3- story home.

Michigan has a home available right now for $1,499,849. It is a 6 bedroom, 4 and 1 half bath ,3 story home.

Checking Forest, the next street West, there is one available listing on for $825,000 which has 4 bedrooms and 2 and 1 half baths, also a 3 story home.

I grew up in Evanston and love helping people and selling real estate!!! I have been a licenced Realtor for 24 years, a loan officer and am a certified Corporate Relocation Specialist among other credentials. I love the Evanston community and working with the real estate community in Evanston.

As a Fourth generation Realtor I take great pride in the quality of my work. Please call me to help you!!!

By the way, I have a lisitng coming on next year which may meet your needs, a 6 bedroom 5 bath home, however it is not on Sheridan or Michigan. I do love Michigan as I lived on that street for some time. This home is on another prominent street in Northwest Evanston, if you are interested in that area. :-)

There is very little available for under $800k on Michigan, Sheridan, Judson, or Forest. However, there is a home available at 112 South Boulevard, listed at $424,900. This location is very close to the lake.

Are you looking for something smaller in size with 2 bedrooms? Strictly a single family home or interested in town homes? I did some research and found some single family homes anywhere from 125k to 500k, including some condo units.
