Another introduction: Homer Row townhouses

Homer Row at 2455-2459 W Homer St in Bucktown Chicago

Considering all the challenges that both developers and agents face in the current housing slump, marketing a development with a tiny elevation rendering (below, at right) that scarcely resembles the actual building would seem like an unnecessary handicap, but we still see this kind of thing every day.

Homer Row renderingWhen I see cartoony pictures of homes that are selling for upwards of $500,000, I usually want to see if the actual building looks anything like the drab two-dimensional one in the rendering. This morning, I was curious enough about Homer Row that I got in the car and went to take some photos. If those renderings inspire the same curiosity in buyers, maybe the developer is onto something.

Mike Vesole from @properties says this townhouse development at 2455 – 2459 W Homer St in Bucktown is still under construction, but he hopes to have a model unit open within a week. Two 2,600 square-foot 4-bedroom/ 3.5-bath townhouses in the development are priced in the $490s, he says. The third townhouse has the same number of bedrooms and baths, but has 200 extra square feet of living space and is priced accordingly, in the $540s.

Vesole touts the finishes, saying there are KitchenAid stainless-steel appliances, Unico cabinets, and hardwood floors throughout. Each home also comes with a two-car garage and a private roof deck.

Vesole expects construction on all three townhouses to wrap within three weeks.
