The striking Italianate Frederick Wacker home at 1838 N Lincoln Park West was listed for sale on December 20 at $1,299,000. The 4,700 square foot, 5-bedroom, 4 ½ bath Old Town Triangle home generated a flurry of interest and four offers, and was under contract three days later.
Anyone who’s paid close attention to the market over the past year knows that this isn’t an uncommon story. Well-priced, well-located homes in good condition have sold quickly despite the bleak condition of the overall market.
The quick sale came despite the conventional thinking that the winter season is a poor time to bring a property to market. We recently posted a contrary opinion.
