Des Plaines Real Estate Market

If there's one thing the Des Plaines real estate market has going for it, most would say affordability. Entry-level homes and starter condos typically start out around $200,000 in Des Plaines, and compared to most North Shore area suburbs, buyers will certainly get more bang for their buck. As alluded to above, many residents living here also love being so close to Chicago, as well as O'Hare for anybody who frequently travels.

Des Plaines Community Amenities

The village of Des Plaines only lies about 20 miles from the center of downtown Chicago, allowing residents to get to and from the Loop in usually under an hour. Outside of all the busy highways surrounding Des Plaines, though, many also know this particular community for being the home of the first franchised McDonald's, which opened all the way back in 1955. Today, the original restaurant still exists, but has since been preserved as a museum that lies along Lee Street, just north of downtown Des Plaines.
