Timing plays a major decision-making role in real estate, and Al Capone’s Chicago mansion listing is not an exception. On the 90th anniversary of one of the bloodiest Chicago crime scenes that went into history as the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, Al Capone’s house is listed up for sale.
Located at 7244 S Prairie Avenue in Chicago’s Park Manor neighborhood on the Far South Side, it’s a two-story unit that was a home to the notorious gangster since August 8, 1923. The house was registered under his wife Mae and his mother Theresa Capone. After Theresa passed away in 1952, the house was sold. According to the real estate agency listing the house, the previous owner lost it to foreclosure in 2018.
Notably, the price for Capone’s Chicago mansion went down twice within the past 10 years. In 2009 its asking price was $450,000, and in 2014 it went down to $225,000.
