RE/MAX Agents and Two Recent Studies Agree: Choosing Home in a Walkable Neighborhood is a Smart Move in the Metro Chicago Real Estate Market

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 23, 2013

Buying a home in or near a walkable neighborhood served by public transportation, restaurants and shops is often a smart financial move in the metropolitan Chicago real estate market, according to RE/MAX Northern Illinois agents and a pair of recent studies.

It’s little surprise, then, that more buyers today opt to live in higher-density neighborhoods dotted with entertainment, dining and transportation options. Such locations give buyers a chance to ditch their cars and get to know their neighborhood and neighbors on a more intimate basis.

And when it’s time for buyers to sell, homes located in walkable neighborhoods served by public transportation tend to fetch both higher prices and generate more showings, RE/MAX Northern Illinois agents said.

Matthew Boemmel, a broker associate with Chicago’s RE/MAX Exclusive Properties, not only sells homes in the Chicago neighborhoods of Lincoln Park and Lincoln Square — known for their restaurants, shops and access to public transportation — he lives in the area. So, he knows firsthand just how attractive the single-family homes and condominiums there are to buyers.

“Sometimes our car sits in the garage for a week,” Boemmel said. “We dont touch it. We can walk to the cleaners and the grocery store. It creates a tight community. There is a streetscape. You are running into people and seeing your neighbors. That has a positive impact on the neighborhood, and it attracts more buyers when its time to sell.”

You don’t have to rely on anecdotal evidence, though, for proof that buying in a walkable downtown area is a smart move. Two new studies provide statistical evidence.

RE/MAX Northern Illinois recently published a study saying that the median sales price of homes in 116 area communities with Metra train service jumped 5.6 percent in the first half of 2013 when compared to the same time period last year. The median price of such homes hit $ 170,000 during this period. In communities without Metra service, the median sales price of homes in the first half of the year rose only 2.3 percent to $ 148,000.

Then there’s a new study by the Center for Neighborhood Technology and the National Association of Realtors? showing that housing sales prices were stronger in Chicago from 2006 through 2011 for homes that were located near public transportation. According to the study, The New Real Estate Mantra: Location Near Public Transportation, the average sales prices for homes located within walking distance of commuter rail and bus stations in Chicago were 30 percent higher than for the region in general.

The good news for buyers in Northern Illinois is that there are plenty of communities in the region not just in Chicago itself that offer walkable downtowns and excellent access to public transit.

Geneva, Ill., a Chicago suburb along the Fox River, is known for its downtown filled with restaurants, chocolate shops, antique stores and boutiques. It also has Metra service, with a station on the edge of its downtown shopping district.

All things being equal, you will get more showings when you are selling a home in or near downtown, said Chris Hansen, a broker associate with RE/MAX Excels of Geneva. Having a nice house that you can walk from to downtown is definitely a selling point. For many people, thats quite a lure. Being located an easy walk from downtown parks, shopping and the river can add a lot to the marketability of a home. Our downtown areas are nice. Theyre visually appealing. Whats not to like?

This isnt to say that downtown homes are for everyone. Some buyers still prefer less crowded settings, and in rural areas, downtowns might be part of an older business district, while new business development pops up closer to the edge of town where ample land is available. Often, the homes located close to these newer business strips come with higher price tags than do the homes near a communitys older downtown.

At the same time, rural communities frequently lack the public transportation that draws so many buyers to downtowns in larger suburbs and cities.

Consider Byron, Ill., where Kitty Moring serves as managing broker and owner of RE/MAX Professional Advantage. The downtown business strip in Byron isnt a large one just a few blocks and many new businesses are opening in business strips outside the downtown. As a result, home buyers neednt live near downtown Byron to be close to services and shops.

This doesnt mean homes downtown arent worth as much as homes in other areas of the community, but there isnt the noticeable price jump associated with this downtown strip that can be documented for other more transit-oriented downtowns across the Chicago region.

Its a little different in a rural area such as ours, Moring said. People like to live all over our community. We like our downtown, but when youre in a smaller town, living in or near a walkable community isnt something thats typically on the minds of buyers.

In many communities, though, walkable downtowns translate to homes that are in greater demand. Boemmel says that he often sees his clients walking to farmers markets and restaurants in Chicagos Lincoln Square neighborhood.

They bought in the area so they could take advantage of the businesses and amenities on the weekends, Boemmel said. There are always people out and about in the community.

Hansen reported that a growing number of home buyers are becoming aware of the financial benefits of buying in a walkable neighborhood. One buyer recently asked him what a Walk Score is. When Hansen explained that its a ranking of how easy it is for residents of a neighborhood to exist without their cars, the buyer was immediately interested.

People are getting more tuned into walkable neighborhoods, Hansen said. Theyre seeking them out.
