Yuppie dream homes priced near $269,000 in ChicagoThe four-bedroom / two-bath home is “a size many buyers aspire to own,” says Coldwell Banker Real Estate CEO Jim Gillespie. In CNN / Money’s words, it’s “the yuppie dream home.” Funny — I would have guessed they’d want at least one more bath, or an extra powder room at the very least.

Anyway, in 2010 four-bedroom / two-baths across the nation have been listed for $353,000 on average, according to a new report from Coldwell Banker. In Chicago, the average was just under $269,000. Above, you can see where you’ll find four-bedroom homes with two or more baths listed between $250,000 to $275,000; click on the image to see them up close at Redfin.
