Home Buying in Deerfield>Question Details

North_shore1…, Home Buyer in Chicago, IL

Looking in Deerfield and Highland Park. Are there pockets where one could find newer (1990's and newer) construction homes?

Asked by North_shore123, Chicago, IL Wed Jun 1, 2011

Seems like there are a few homes for sale that meet that criteria but they tend to be surrounded by older (built in 1960's, 1970's) homes and therefore look quite out of place in the neighborhood.

There are a few pockets in Highland Park off of Ridge, and also a small area at Lake Cook west of Green Bay. There is also a newer pocket of homes in Deerfield, at Lake Cook and Pfingsten to name just a few. These areas exist, but are definitely not the predominant type home in the area. Most are in the mid to high price range for these areas. Of course, there are also the "infill" homes you mentioned, that are newer homes surround by older homes.

If you want newer, consider new! We can build you a beautiful custom home for a reasonable price.

Yes there are pockets near the train station when times were good, speculators tore down a small house and built to the max on a city lot. Many of those are bank owned and the owner defaulted on the construction loan. You have a hard time findingg a new subdivision in HP or Deerfield, unless you go with the former base property sold for development and goes to Highwood schools. We can search by age of home within your price range if you had not done so yet.
Strange, in a month no one else answered??
