If you are considering giving up your urban Chicago loft to invest in a single-family home away from the busy city, you are among the majority. A suburban-bound population shift is being seen around the country, and Chicago is an area heavily affected by this trend.
Young couples may be seeking a more spacious, mature community to raise families while commuting to careers in the city. Moving from Chicago to the city’s western suburbs will allow you to find a newly built home offering a great deal more space and property for much less than an apartment or high-rise property in the city. These homes often feature large yards and three or four bedrooms, and they are nestled in comfortable neighborhoods with other family-oriented neighbors.
Historically, young people in their early 20s move away from the suburbs to urban areas, but tend to return to the suburbs as they approach the age of 30. Major cities like Chicago have been viewed as more temporary living areas, appealing to college students and recent graduates. As people grow up, however, a more functional, they often prefer a more practical living space. Spacious living areas with the amenities typically desired by the 30-something crowd are rare in urban environments, so they come at a high price. Instead of struggling to stay in these properties, many people—particularly those between the ages of 35 and 42—are enjoying the space and luxury they want at an affordable price by choosing to live in Chicago’s western suburbs.
