Paddle north on the Chicago River about five miles from the Loop (or just take the Kennedy Expressway) and you’ll arrive at Avondale, a neighborhood rich with history that’s in the midst of a transition. In the mid-20th century, Avondale was where Chicagoans would go to play in the summer. Avondale’s present population of more than 43,000 residents is ethnically and economically diverse, and a growing number of Latin-American families call Avondale home. In recent years a younger set has moved into the southern portion of Avondale, drawn to the ‘hood’s affordable rents, cheap eats, and good transportation options.

Housing Stock

Home buyers in Avondale enjoy more affordable housing stock than neighboring Roscoe Village, because the neighborhood still flies under the radar for many. Nearly 40 percent of the homes in Avondale are owner-occupied, and that number is likely to grow. Several large brick condominium and townhouse developments have been constructed along Belmont and Elston Avenues in recent years.
