Chicago North Shore Real Estate Sales Strong
For single family homes in a four year period since the beginning of 2010 we are at the highest point in years for the number of contracts written during this time of year. 2013 had higher numbers through August but then dropped off and by September there were 271 contracts written for single family homes. At the same point in this year of 2014 we have 318 contracts written.
The point is that if priced properly homes in the Chicago North Shore are still selling strong today. The Chicago North Shore is Evanston, Wilmette, Kenilworth, Winnetka, Glencoe.

This Monday Former Chicago Bulls superstar Michael Jordan attempted to auction off his home in MJ 23Lake Forest Illinois located at 2700 Point Ln with a minimum bid of $13 Million and there were no takers. The home is 56,000 square feet on three floors with 9 bedrooms, 5 fire places and sits on 7 acres. A guest house to rival most homes you and I would live in is included.
He lived in the home with his former wife and children who are now grown and have moved on. The home has a full size regulation basketball court and huge workout room that is like his own health club. Randy Brown was part of a group of former players who would go to his weight room and work out and play ball before they would even go to the official practice. They called the get together “The Breakfast Club” because his private chef would prepare meals for his cronies who have talked about the sessions they had enjoyed.
With a tennis court, wet bar, dry bar in ground pool and fire places indoors and out what more could you want? There are not many who could afford such a house and maybe that is why it did not sell? One problem is that it is located 3 miles from Lake Michigan and most homes getting anywhere near that price tag include beach access.
The home was once listed in the MLS at $29,000,000, dropped to $16,000,000 but still did not attract any offers. Do you think MJ is hurting for the money? I don’t think so. He is still one of the highest paid former professional sports figures with a fairly untarnished image unlike Lance Armstrong and Tiger Woods.
Imagine getting the commission on selling that house.

Today I closed a sale on 800 Elgin, the Optima Horizons unit 1509 a 2 bedroom 2 Bath Evanston Illinois condo steps from Northwestern University and all parties are very happy. Why is this, the 800 Elgin building is the favorite among students and facility in town because it has all the amenities and is right in downtown Evanston IL.
There are restaurants all over, many shops, and public transportation is right at your finger tips. A great building with a door person, huge swimming pool, deck, exercise room, party room and management on site 5 days a week. If you want to learn more about 800 Elgin or any of the Optima communities of Evanston Illinois I suggest you visit 800 Elgin and take a peak.
The property we closed on today was for a buyer who invested to help his daughter a fine student at NU and she is a very excited young lady judging by the huge smile on her face.
