The Best-Selling Neighborhoods in Chicago

Whether you’re a Chicago native or you’ve recently moved to the Windy City, the options are endless when it comes to finding the ideal neighborhood. Over the past decade, certain neighborhoods have emerged and remained popular in the Chicagoland area, and for good reason. Whether you’re renting or buying, consider adding these neighborhoods to your list of options if you haven’t already.

River North

Nothing screams Chicago like living in the heart of downtown! There are tons of amazing condos and single-family homes in the River North area, not to mention the fact that you are surrounded by some of the best views, food and entertainment that the city has to offer. River North residents can take advantage of shopping on the Magnificent Mile, dine at some of the city’s finest restaurants and soak in the culture and art that the city offers.

South Loop

Another increasingly popular neighborhood to consider is South Loop. Although it is smaller, it offers the convenience of the Loop without the hefty price tag. An increasing number of working professionals are settling down in the South Loop which offers incredible views of the lake, the river and easy access to the Museum Campus.


Head north of the Loop and you’ll be in Edgewater, with the entirety of its eastern border extending along Lake Michigan. This neighborhood gives off incredible charm while still being hip and desirable. As you move toward the interior portion of Edgewater, you’ll find high-quality single-family homes at a wide variety of prices.


If you’re looking for a neighborhood that always has something cool and fun going on, opt for Bucktown. There are plenty of bars and restaurants serving up local grub in addition to rooftop bars and access to the 606 Trail. Think record shops, art galleries, book stores and cool coffee shops.
