10 Reasons Why Goodings Grove Continues Attracting Homebuyers

Tucked immediately east of Bell Road along 143rd Street in southwest suburban Homer Glen, Goodings Grove has developed a reputation as one of the Southland’s most desirable new home communities – and for many good reasons.

Reason #1: Meticulous community design: Covering nearly 200 acres, Goodings Grove represents the most substantial development in the young history of Homer Glen – and perhaps its most thoughtful. Gallagher and Henry designed the community with intent and precision, earmarking space for commercial operations, recreation, and greenery alongside more than 200 single-family homes and six four-story condominium buildings. The family-owned homebuilder took great care to address the desires of modern homebuyers and ensure a high quality of life prevailed.

Reason #2: Convenience for everyday living: While Gallaher and Henry designated 124 acres of the Goodings Grove footprint for residential development, it also devoted 73 acres to commercial space and ensuring Goodings Grove residents have immediate access to life’s everyday needs. Anchored by a Meijer store and The Home Depot, the Goodings Grove commercial development at 143rd Street and Bell Road hosts a variety of retail and dining establishments.

Reason #3: Transportation ease: With convenient access to I-355 via 143rd Street and a train station (Orland Park 143rd Street) providing Metra Southwest service to Chicago’s Union Station, Goodings Grove residents can easily travel around Chicagoland.

Reason #4: Room to breathe and room to play. The Goodings Grove community features more than 40 acres of green space, including the community’s own 3.5-acre Goodings Grove park. The nearly $500,000 project completed in 2017 features a walking path, two playgrounds, a full basketball court, and picnic shelter.

Reason #5: Accomplished public schools: Between Homer Community Consolidated School District 33C and Lockport Township High School District 205, Goodings Grove families and school-aged residents have access to high-achieving schools where students regularly flourish in academics and extracurricular activities.

Reason #6: Homer Glen happiness: Residents enjoy living in Homer Glen, assigning the village stellar marks for safety, ease of travel, K-12 education, and the natural environment. More than 90 percent of residents, in fact, rated the village as a “good” or “excellent” place to live and raise a family, according to the National Citizen Survey. Nine out of 10 residents would also recommend living in Homer Glen to others.

Reason #7: Varied home plans: Homebuyers can select from one of six distinct Lifestyle Series home plans at Goodings Grove. The Lifestyle Series plans include four two-story offerings and two ranch plans, including the wildly popular Fremont. Gallagher and Henry also provides its Goodings Grove homebuyers affordable luxury, blending large suburban lots and brick construction with premium standard features, such as open-concept floorplans, flex spaces, and three-car garages.

Reason #8: The ability to customize: Gallagher and Henry views its Lifestyle Series home plans as a starting point and offers homebuyers the opportunity to adapt plans to their specific needs, wishes, and tastes. Homebuyers can add windows, move or subtract walls, cover the patio, and finish their basement with custom touches.

Reason #9: The Gallagher and Henry halo effect: Gallagher and Henry has been building homes in Chicago’s Southland since 1954 and garnered a reputation as one of the Chicago area’s most trusted homebuilders, evident by a significant number of repeat homebuyers. Whether it’s selecting the right homesite, the optimal floor plan, or making cosmetic choices, Gallagher and Henry staff work hand-in-hand with homebuyers so they can confidently navigate the homebuying process. Yet more, Gallagher and Henry builds its homes to exceed many prevailing construction standards.

Reason #10: A village on the move: Since incorporating in 2001, Homer Glen has added some 2,000 residents, opened the 103-acre Heritage Park to serve as “the heart of the village,” and cemented its status as a forward-thinking village committed to its residents’ quality of life, health, and safety.
