A private spot in general is good to have if you like to just park and walk into your home. And a garage is if you want that added protection from the elements. We have a lot of elements in Chicago, so you may want covered if it is a nice car. However, parking is one thing many people have to either sacrifice or pay more for when you move into the city. GOOD LUCK!
If you require an agent to assist you and set up home tours and work with you on the research, we would love to assist.

It depends on the neighborhood, some areas are easier han others to park on the street. For resale reasons, buying parking will make it easier to find a buyer when you go to sell in the future.
I am happy to help you find a place, my services are free to you as a buyer.

in your price range up to 550 K especially with the way our winters are often, and parking on the street is not only often difficult because of available space and more difficult in heavy snow falls. So it may be
ok for you now, but if you want to think about resale, you want to have at least one garage and hopefully additional parking space in the drive way.
By the way since you are asking the question here, I am wondering if you are working with a Realtor,
one who is familiar with the city and who will not only find you the right property for you and show them to you, but who will also give you advice, answer all your questions as that above and guide you through the entire buying process, protecting your interests and needs, and representing only YOU.
There will be negotiations for price and terms, discussions after inspection, the lending part etc. etc.
Do not do this on your own, and remember the buyers agent provide so many valuable services,
and he or she will be paid by the selling side at the closing table out of the proceeds for the seller.
So in other words the services are free to you, but make sure you do commit to one Realtor and
loyalty on both sides will lead to a pleasant and successful closing.
If you need a recommendation for a Realtor, let us know we gladly give you some good recommendations. My brokerage has several Chicago offices and many of our agents are

Granted street parking is easier in Roscoe Village for now, but it may not be forever.
Garages do more than house your car, they can be used for other purposes besides putting that xmas tree in there till next year.
When you go to sell your property that garage is going to up your value.
