Real Estate: What $399,000 Buys You in Glen Ellyn

A look at homes for sale at different price points in Glen Ellyn.

Location is one thing that cannot be changed when buying real estate, and this home at 699 Chidester Ave. listed at $399,000, is only a few blocks away from Lake Ellyn. 

The three-bedroom, two-bath home was built in 1951 and appears to have good bones, but could use some updating. The listing suggests it could also be scraped for a new home to be built. It is being sold as is.

With hardwood floors, plaster walls and Kohler fixtures, the home could be a good first home for a family. The home, which is 1,275 square feet, features fireplaces, central air, a basement, a wooded yard and a two-car garage.

$199,000 will buy you something similar, with a two-car attached garage...and no wall-paper to take down :) https://www.facebook.com/GlenEllynRanchForSale
