The Northwest Side neighborhood of Ravenswood Manor was the site of at least 14 single-family home sales in 2010, but right now has very little to offer buyers: just three homes are listed for sale in the corner of Albany Park bounded by Montrose, Sacramento and Lawrence Avenues, and the Chicago River. The listings represent a good price spread, matching 2010’s range of closing prices, which stretched from the $410s for a two-bedroom home to $1.34 million for a five-bedroom.
