Oak Forest House For Sale at 1755 De Milo

April 2016 update: This is an old post but good to get perspective on neighborhood trends.

Oak Forest is one of the 1950’s neighborhoods I write about. If you are not familiar with Oak Forest area homes this link will take to to my Neighborhood Page.
The Oak Forest market is still doing very well. There are currently 61 “active” (available) homes on MLS, plus 51 under contract (that is a big number, even for the end of the month). About a fourth of these are new homes, or homes built in the last few years.

There are some beautifully renovated homes in thwe area. My featured Oak Forest home for this post is 1755 De Milo. It is a beautifully renovated 1668 SF 3/2/2 for $358,800. Photos to the right.

The typical Oak Forest home is either a 2/1 (often with garage converted to a third bedroom or den) or 3/2. Since most people prefer a second bath, I’ll summarize those. There are currently 14 active resale 3/2’s in Oak Forest. These are all ~1950’s homes, I excluded the newer homes.

This MLS search shows re-sale 3BR/2Bath Oak Forest Houses for Sale. This will not match exactly what I have above because results may change daily.
The price range on these is pretty broad. They start at $119,900 for a short sale (if you want to torture yourself trying to buy a short sale) to $358,500.

Oak Forest New Houses are Selling Well Too.

The new homes are built on full sized lots (no subdividing lots here). The new homes are generally twice as large and twice as expensive as the original ranch style homes. There are 14 active new homes (plus the same number pending). The price ranges are shown in table below.
