Western Springs, the sleeper village of the Western Suburbs
If you’ve never heard of Western Springs, it may be because it is a small village tucked in between LaGrange and Hinsdale with a low profile. However, the 13,000 residents of Western Springs boast that once you move in, you don’t move out.
The center of town is graced by the beautiful Water Tower surrounded by the “Village Green”, home to many events including Gathering on the Green and the French Market. It’s accessibility to the BNSF train and the local shops and restaurants that provide walk-to amenities make the village even more convenient to its residents.
The school system ranks in the top-rated education systems in the nation, which further make Western Springs a highly desirable place to raise a family.
The Western Springs housing market is surging. Over the last three months, the average market time is 88 days and homes are under contract in 65 days. Furthermore, in the same time period, 25 homes have sold in the “walk-to-train” neighborhoods with an average sales price of $617,000 and an average market time of 87 days. Affordable home prices and low Western Springs mortgage interest rates are helping to fuel this housing recovery.
