According to our resident Notre Dame real estate expert here at Irish Realty, about 80% of properties purchased around Notre Dame come from parents of Notre Dame students. Some of these parents are also Notre Dame alumni, who are happy to share the Irish tradition with their children! And it’s easy to see why so many are eager to buy real estate near Notre Dame’s campus: You can get great value for your money in our market!
When you compare college towns across the county, South Bend/Mishawaka is the most affordable major college town in the nation. Syracuse follows with a median sales price of $176,100 for the loyal Orange. The Fighting Illini of Champaign-Urbana are cheering for a median sales price of $183,700 while the Spartans of Michigan State University are raising a glass to a median sales price of $184,500.
Many Notre Dame parents are motivated to have a place to stay when they come to visit their Notre Dame student, especially on Junior Parents weekend, football weekends – when Hotel prices go WAY up! Parents of Notre Dame students are taking advantage of our affordability and purchasing condos for their students. This used to be a minor blip on the housing industry, but it has now become a “real thing.” Essentially, the student lives rent free while his/her roommates cover the mortgage with rent. These families then retain the home after graduation as an investment property or as a second home for football weekends and other campus visits.
Affluent alumni are returning. The area around the Notre Dame campus has exploded in popularity with strong demand and rising prices. They want to return for weekends and have a place of their own. Many are choosing the new developments like Belle Terre Villas, The Echoes and Brennan’s View Condominiums. If they can find a place to VRBO or airbnb they can get return and also have it when they want to use it.
