Homes for Sale

Homes in this area come in a wide range of prices, styles, and sizes.

Where to Live

West Pullman sits on the far South Side of Chicago, which means that its real estate isn't in quite as high demand as condos and row homes in the center. You can find plenty of reasonably priced dwellings in this neighborhood, and a great variety of dwellings at that. Everything from affordable, attached units to single-family homes with four or more bedrooms stand in the West Pullman market.

Where to Eat

As with most Chicago neighborhoods, you'll find the most culinary variety on West Pullman's busiest streets. Head to Halsted, 115th, or 119th Streets to find the area's eateries. West Pullman is large and its culinary draws match the neighborhood's size. You'll find everything from fried shrimp and chicken, to tacos, to meaty ribs.

What You'll See

West Pullman's on the Chicago grid, but it doesn't feel too cosmopolitan. It's covered almost entirely in houses, which lends the neighborhood a much more residential feel. You won't see as many people taking power lunches or window-shopping like you would downtown. Instead, expect families to walk to the neighborhood's parks and commuters to head to the Metra stations that dot West Pullman.

Friday Night Fun

Although the neighborhood has plenty of restaurants within its borders, West Pullman is lacking a bit on nightlife. However, the neighborhood's major streets do hold several local bars, pubs, and dives that locals frequent. You could also opt for a night at the neighborhood bowling alley or billiards hall.

The Perfect Sunday

Within West Pullman’s borders, you will find the neighborhood’s namesake park. It’s part of the Chicago Park District, too, which means its facilities are plentiful and well-maintained. In fact, you could probably spend every Sunday here without getting bored: there’s an outdoor savannah area as well as tennis courts, baseball fields, basketball courts, and a splash pool for kiddos who need to cool down over the summer. If you’re looking for even more of an escape, hop just over the neighborhood’s southern border to the Whistler Woods Forest Preserve, which has become more of a draw thanks to ongoing rejuvenation efforts.
