It's all depend on many many factors, including local climate; the amount of insulation, the age of building, what kind of exterior wall and heating system the building has, the amount and size of windows .. etc.
The best way to find out is to ask someone who lives in that building.

It's a great time to buy now. Prices have fallen on average over 30% from '08 levels and interest rates are still at record lows.

Why would you consider selling now vs. re-renting is the main question. If you sell now, what else will you do with the money? Will it bring you a better return? Many investors, both public and private have been piling billions of dollars into residential real estate investments over the past couple years, and they are continuing to do so now. Combine that along with rising rental rates and very low interest rates, and it seems to make sense to own rentals.

If you still consider selling for the land value, work with a realtor to figure out what the current price .25 acres will fetch you as a teardown. That number varies greatly depending where in Glenview your parcel is located. Additionally, I have seen some homes that people consider teardowns, get bought by families looking for a starter home to fix up. Either way, inventory is low, and many realtors will most likely have several builders/contractors on speed dial that may jump at your opportunity.

If you decide you would like to review your options more in depth, I would be happy to sit down with you over coffee/tea and help weigh out the pros and cons of both your options.

Actually this home is 3 short blocks from the Golf train station. The current owner takes the train downtown to and from work every day!

Give me a little more info and I'll help - various factors come into play for "average price per square foot" - number of bedrooms, lot size, age of home, style (ranch / 2 story / etc) - also using average can skew the data you might wish to consider the median instead. ... more

sorry it took so long to get this answer, but I just saw this question...

Glenview, in the past 3 months has been selling for approx. 93.6% of list price
and Northbrook for the same period of time, was 93.7%

pretty close to each other!

Hi Jerry,

A quick look at the 3bd townhouses in the Heatherfield subdivision shows only 1 that has closed in the last 6 months (it just closed on July 27th) at $675,000. If there are more, the listing agents haven't specified the subdivision.

If you need a more in depth comparative market analysis, feel free to contact me and we can set up an appointment. I have an appointment in the Glen next week and could meet with you before or after that if it works. Otherwise, we can work out another time.
