Single-family home prices dropped in both Oak Park and River Forest in the fourth quarter of last year, but not quite as severely as other communities in the region. And the overall rate of decline is now slowing.
Average home prices dropped in 238 of the 252 Chicago-area zip codes tracked by Brookfield, Wisc.-based Fiserv. South suburban Harvey saw the biggest drop, at 19.6 percent, and Clarendon Hills the largest uptick, at 3.6 percent.
The drops were much smaller here, at 4.4 percent in Oak Park's 60302 ZIP code, 4.5 percent for southern Oak Park's 60304 ZIP code, and 7.2 percent for River Forest.
