The South Loop real estate for sale is rapidly becoming one of the hottest urban neighborhoods in Chicago and it does not seem that the area will cease development and growth anytime soon. Prospective homebuyers have a wealth of newly built high-rises and townhomes from which to choose when in search of a new home in Chicago's South Loop real estate market. In addition to the increasing amount of urban residences, the South Loop houses some of Chicago’s top tourist attractions and sports venues. From the Shedd Aquarium to the Field Museum, the culturally aware and art-appreciate folks surely have many options. Home to the Chicago Bears, Soldier Field has become a top destination for Sunday football as well as many concerts. New restaurants continue to pop up along the streets of the South Loop and the bar-goers have a surplus of watering holes on any night of the week.
Real estate in Chicago's South Loop is generally defined as Congress Parkway to the north, Lake Michigan to the east, the south branch of the Chicago River to the west, and Cermak Road to the south. As in any city neighborhood though, the boundaries are a little flexible.
South Loop real estate is dominated Lofts and by new high-rise condominium buildings. The South Loop lakefront offers some of the city’s best views overlooking the Museum Campus, Soldier Field, and Lake Michigan to the east, and the downtown skyline to the north and east. There are areas of mid-rise condos, townhomes, and single-family homes away from the lake.
The South Loop neighborhood has experienced a building boom that has created a lot of unsold properties. South Loop was also one of the many areas of downtown to get hit by investors overbuying un-built condo units. So now, more than ever, with interest rates low, prices lower, and more sellers in the South Loop than ever before, it is a great time and place to buy real estate. The South Loop has a myriad of housing options to fit the lifestyles of young adults to growing families and "empty nester" retirees.
South Loop real estate for sale consists of mostly attached housing options: condominiums, lofts, and townhouses.

Townhomes in the area are selling for a little less than $500,000, and the rare single-family homes can start at $750,000 to over a million.
Most South Loop condos are located very close to nearby amenities like grocery stores, parks, restaurants, and entertainment.

There are many big box retailers in the area, including a newly opened Whole Foods Market, Target, and Office Depot. There is also a 16-screen theatre scheduled to open in the South Loop area in the fall.
