As home prices in neighborhoods like Ukrainian Village, Bucktown, and Wicker Park continue to spike, heading a bit further north to begin a new home or condo search may not be a bad idea, at least according to the high-traffic website Lonely Planet.
Although their findings have little to do with purchasing a home, Lonely Planet dubbed Chicago’s Avondale neighborhood one of the ten hottest in the country, and a “must-visit” for anyone traveling or planning to spend time in the Windy City.
Specifically noted in the area’s top-notch culinary scene, as well as its “scruffy, artsy, lived-in magic,” Avondale certainly has a lot to offer for both visitors and locals who call this part of Chicago home, and its highlights go far beyond just a couple good restaurants and a distinguished artsy vibe.
Right now, homes for sale in Avondale are pretty reasonable from a price standpoint, at least compared to many other popular neighborhoods that were just mentioned above. But as noted by Lonely Planet, the location of Avondale is poised for growth sooner rather than later, so if you’re looking to get in early, now really is the time to consider Chicago’s “up-and-coming’ Avondale location.
