Let’s say you’re looking for a little “starter” home, but you’d like to be in East Washington Park.

Check out this week’s Crush of the Week: 850 S Vine Street, a three-bed, two-bath, 2,248-square-foot bungalow listed for $849,000.

This quintessential bungalow has an ideal East Wash Park location, a short two blocks from restaurants and shopping on South Gaylord Street and only five blocks from glorious, 155-acre Washington Park!

The current owners purchased the home for $535,000 back in 2013, so this list price is a 60 percent increase in value, on par with 12 percent year-over-year appreciation in the neighborhood.

853 S Gaylord Street sold last year for $880,000 in late April.

The owners have done some renovations , so they will be looking to maximize their return on investment this weekend. From what I know, they should have no trouble attracting offers over list price. Take a look at the comparative 853 S Gaylord Street, which just closed for $880,000 in late April.

Whether you’re downsizing to an urban location or purchasing for the first time, the always hip Wash Park is a great location! Showings start today (Friday, May 4) for this East Wash Park “starter.”
