Des Plaines Real Estate & Homes for Sale in Illinois

Once home to the Potawatomi, Ottawa, and Chippewa tribes, Des Plaines encompasses a vast 15 square miles of gently rolling valleys, rivers and woodlands. The community is located only 17 miles from downtown Chicago and 24 miles west of Lake Michigan.

Des Plaines has evolved from a small farming town into one of the leading communities in the northwest suburbs. With a diverse population base of 58,710 residents, several commercial, industrial, retail and service businesses, as well as Fortune 500 companies, Des Plaines' thriving economy and low property taxes offers residents an excellent quality of life unlike anywhere else. The city itself covers a total of 15.85 square miles.

Thanks to its proximity to Chicago—commonly referred to as the Windy City—Des Plaines has easy access to major tollways and the O'Hare International Airport. Trains as well as bus and subway services are available for convenient and comfortable public transportation. Downtown redevelopment and industrial growth provide a stable economy and bright prospects for the future. The Metropolitan Square development serves as such a resource. As the downtown's newest redevelopment project, Metropolitan Square will feature 40,000 square foot of space for the Show & Save Marketplace grocery store, 56,000 square feet of retail space, 22,000 square feet of office space, and 135 condo and loft units in this pedestrian and automobile friendly area.

Warm summers bring a variety of sports programs and annual events such as the Taste of Des Plaines to the populace. Golf courses, horseback riding trails, aquatic centers, bike paths and more provide plenty of opportunities for outdoor fun. The city's elementary and secondary schools are nationally acclaimed. An excellent junior college and a state-of-the art public library opened in 2000 make it possible for all residents of Des Plaines to acquire an exceptional education. Real estate offerings in Des Plaines include single-family homes as well as condominiums and townhouses. A thriving economy, distinguished schools, a rich history and a stunning natural setting provide both businesses and families with an ideal hometown.
