This 2-bedroom duplex at 3700 N. Lake Shore Drive in Lakeview came on the market in March 2013.
It was reduced several times but still didn’t sell.
The listing was removed and re-listed with brand new photographs.
Even though only minor details were changed with the actual property (i.e. a rug was removed in the living room and there’s a new comforter in the master bedroom), the property looks very different with the new set of pictures.
You can still see the original pictures here (which, granted, were taken in the middle of winter.)
This 1600 square foot duplex appears to be in the midrise building behind the townhomes in this complex (on the left side of the picture above.)
The kitchen has white cabinets, stainless steel appliances and a back backsplash.
The two bedrooms are on the second floor.
It also has the features buyers are looking for with central air, washer/dryer in the unit and enclosed parking.
It’s been reduced about $50,000 since March to $399,999.
How important are the pictures for a property anyway?
Rosalba Salinas at Rising Realty has the listing. See the new pictures here.
