Located northwest of downtown Chicago, Jefferson Park is a spacious, affordable neighborhood with excellent access to public transportation and O’Hare International Airport. Jefferson Park has a great market for multi-families and is a great place to buy for families and investors alike.
Jefferson Park offers plenty of 2-flats for sale. With average rent for a 2-bedroom running at $1400/month, a 2-flat is a smart option that can cover part of your mortgage by living in one unit while renting out the other.
This neighborhood has the best of all worlds: affordable properties with great schools like Beaubien Elementary. Downtown is accessible in just 25 minutes via the Blue Line or in 15 minutes by car. Most buyers are young families looking for larger square footage than what’s available closer to the Loop.
Jefferson Park has a great variety of multi-family homes. Whether you’re looking for supplemental cash or are wanting to invest, the neighborhood has great options. Many of these old brick buildings need some TLC, an excellent opportunity to boost property value with renovations while occupying/renting out other units!
