The homes are priced from $409,900 and, like many smaller infill projects, they’re not yet listed in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS).
Developments like this one have been selling pre-completion recently throughout much of the north side of Chicago. If you’re relying on alerts mediated by a broker through the MLS, you’re likely to miss out on many new construction opportunities.
If you’re locked into buying in a particular area, you should make a street-by-street survey of the area periodically to see what’s new. You can also monitor new building permits via the city’s online database.
A third way to tune in to the new homes market is to check in with brokers who concentrate on that segment of the market. Sergio & Banks, for example, is currently representing twenty new developments and its agents are aware of more that are in the pipeline.
