North Center 3 & 4 bedroom condo sales evaporate above $600K

A couple of my buyers found a 3 bedroom townhouse for sale in Chicago’s North Center area that they really like. However, there just aren’t any comparable sales to justify a price anywhere close to what the sellers are asking well into the $600Ks so my sellers are going to keep looking. As shown below by the green bars, there have only been two 3 or 4 bedroom condo sales in North Center in the past year above $600K. Both were new construction and very high end with elevators. One has a private rooftop deck with a terrific view of the Chicago skyline. The townhouse my buyers like is nice, but not in the same league as those.
