House Hunt: Five Homes For Sale (Just) Under $750,000

A sequel to our surprisingly popular House Hunt on houses just under a million bucks.

While our House Hunt articles are always fairly popular (Western Springs, we love our real estate!), we got some particularly strong attention from an article we did in June about . So since you all liked that one so much, we're going back to the well—or, rather, a slightly cheaper well.

On the off-chance that those million-dollar homes were a mite out of your price range, here's a few that fall closest to, but not over, a three-quarters-of-a-million mark ($750,000).

(Note: After we prepared this article on Wednesday, the price of a home at 5244 Lawn Ave. was dropped to $749,500, making it technically the most expensive below the $750K mark at time of publishing. That home is not included in this House Hunt.)
