Looking to live in one of the coolest neighborhoods in the city of Chicago - and maybe in the entire country? Then Avondale is the spot for you.

Avondale was recently named one of the nation's hottest "up-and-coming" neighborhoods by travel media company Lonely Planet, whose writers vibed with the area's "scruffy, artsy, lived-in magic."

Those are their words, but we think they ring true. Avondale has long been a spot that's welcomed artists, families, and foodies of all stripes. Though the neighborhood has changed from the days when it was the center of Polish life for the city, Avondale has always been, and always will be, unique, unpretentious, and totally Chicago.

Boasting a unique combination of industrial architecture, classical cathedrals, and generously-sized homes, Avondale is home to some of Chicago's coolest haunts, including Honey Butter Fried Chicken, the pierogi-dispensing Red Apple, and, of course, Kuma's Corner, a world famous spot for burgers, beer, and heavy metal (yep, you read that right).

Officially, Avondale is bounded by Addison Street to the north and Diversey Avenue to the south, with the Chicago River on the east and Pulaski Road to the west. It is one of 77 officially-designated community areas in Chicago.

Ready to buy a house or condo in this charming neighborhood? Here are the current market statistics for Avondale:

When you make the decision to sell your home, you’ll inevitably find that a whole bunch of other decisions are sure to follow: When do you go to market? What price do you ask for? What marketing strategies is your listing agent going to use? And what steps are you going to take to help showcase your property in the best possible light?

That last point? Well, another way of putting that one is: How are you going to stage your home?

Staging a listing is all about styling and furnishing your home, in order to make it as attractive as possible to prospective buyers. Staging is about helping to make it as easy as possible for every person who walks through the door or views your listing online to see themselves living in the space.
