The hot market is bringing back a lot of old listings that never sold including this 3-bedroom triplex at 847 N. Hermitage in the East Village neighborhood of West Town. We last chattered about it all the way back in September of 2010. See our prior chatter here. This 3-unit building was built in 1999. […]

Will This Gold Coast Teardown Finally Sell In This Hot Market? 67 E. Bellevue

I don’t have a picture of this 5-bedroom single family house at 67 E. Bellevue in the Gold Coast even though it’s been on and off the market since September 2010. It’s being sold as a teardown. The listing says “sold as is.” The current house has 3 stories and a 1-car garage on a […]

5-Bedrooms But 1 Full Bathroom In This Vintage Colonial At 1700 W. Wilson In Ravenswood

This 5-bedroom vintage single family home at 1700 W. Wilson in the Ravenswood neighborhood of Uptown came on the market in October 2012. (Sorryabout the massive tree right in the middle of the picture! LOL. It was hard for me to get a good angle on this house.) The listing says it is a mediterranean with a […]

Want To Raise Your Kids In A Loft? A 3-Bedroom At 1201 W. Wrightwood In Lincoln Park

Someone mentioned that it’s hard to find a loft big enough to raise children in but this 3-bedroom in the Gaertner Building at 1201 W. Wrightwood in Lincoln Park would seem to qualify. This loft has exposed brick and large industrial windows with tall ceilings. The listing says there’s no unit above or below it […]

Listed At The 2004 Price And “Sold Before Print”: 1402 W. Byron in Southport

We’ve chattered about this building at 1402 W. Byron in Southport in the past. Previously, we discussed a 3-bedroom first floor unit that was partially a garden unit. It was on and off the market for 3 years. See our previous chatter here. Now, this second floor 3-bedroom recently came on the market but the […]

A Roscoe Village 4-Bedroom SFH On A Double Lot Reduces $110K: 1805 W. Cornelia

We’ve chattered about this 4-bedroom single family home at 1805 W. Cornelia in Roscoe Village several times before. See our October 2012 chatter here. It was originally listed as a single family home on a double lot and then re-listed as two separate lots but now has been relisted again as a home on a double […]

“Must Have 20% Down”: A 2-Bedroom Loft At 1000 W. Diversey In Lakeview

This 2-bedroom loft at 1000 W. Diversey in Lakeview just came on the market. We’ve chattered about a loft in this building before but that one had a rooftop deck.

We Love Wide Open Artists Lofts: 400 N. Racine In West Town

This 2-bedroom loft at 400 N. Racine in West Town just came on the market (or is this the West Loop? It’s north of the railroad tracks so I’m calling it West Town.) It’s not the small packaged and staged type of loft we normally see. At 2650 square feet it has a wide open floor […]

Will Reducing Under $1 Million Be The Charm For This Old Norwood Park 4-Bedroom? 5692 N. New Hampshire

We’ve chattered about this 4-bedroom new(er) construction single family home at 5692 N. New Hampshire in Old Norword Park several times over the last few years because it originally came on the market in 2009. See our 2011 chatter here. It was 5-bedrooms in its last listing and I can’t figure out what happened to […]
