Least expensive home reported sold in Oak Park IL
The least expensive home reported sold this past week in Oak Park was a 2 bedroom, 2 bath bungalow on a 25 x 126 foot lot on the 1150 block of south Highland Ave. It sold at auction for $89,250, after 81 days on the market with an original asking price of $194,500.
