Few sales events catch the public’s attention right now as well as big closeout and foreclosure auctions, so it’s no surprise that Rick Levin & Associates is eager to get the word out about a new “mega auction” of hundreds of condos, single-family homes, and townhomes in Chicago and several suburban cities.
On June 23rd through 27th, Levin will auction off 135 units in Chicago, Grayslake, Libertyville, Lombard, Mount Prospect, and Schiller Park, plus a lender-owned home site in Lincolnshire and a vacant commercial parcel in Belmont Cragin.
Among the Chicago homes set to hit the block are 13 single-families and six condos at MCL Companies‘ Metro Place in North Lawndale, scheduled for auction on the 25th, and six single-families, 17 townhomes, and 23 condos at Red Seal Homes‘ Enclave at Galewood Crossings in Austin, scheduled for auction on the 27th.
Metro Place’s single-families have four bedrooms and 3.5 baths, red oak flooring in the entry, living / dining areas, granite kitchen countertops, gas fireplaces, and two-car detached garages. The homes previously started in the $570s and have suggested opening bids from $225,000.
The development’s two-bedroom / two-bath condos have 9-foot ceiling heights, gas fireplaces, and outdoor parking spaces. MCL originally marketed the homes from the $250s, and bidding is suggested to open from $125,000.
The June 27th auction at the Enclave at Galewood Crossings gated community includes six single-family homes (pictured above) with three to six bedrooms and more than 3,000 square feet each, 17 three- or four-bedroom townhomes with up to 2,340 square feet, and 23 two- to four-bedroom condominiums.
The Enclave’s single-families were previously priced in the $600s but will start at $185,000 at auction. The townhomes will start at $135,000, and the condos will start at $85,000. Two-flats are also available.
Select units at each development will be sold absolute, regardless of price, according to Levin.
