I have a friend who is selling her refurbished studio in a highrise at Clark and Burton (one blk south of north ave) in Goldcoast for under $1000/mo including taxes, etc.. It's a steal...she just moved to San Fran and hasn't listed it yet. I know she doesn't want to use a broker for this one. (I'm looking to rent a one-bedroom otherwise I'd have jumped all over it.)

Hi Lorrean,
Well, It really depends on what your needs are...... space wise and financially!
In today's economy all aspects should be considered before making a decision whether you want to
rent or buy......

Renting is more short term, buying is more long term.....

The best way to make your decision is to connect with an experienced area Realtor who will provide you not only with what is out there for rent, but also what you could purchase..... then discuss your loan options with an experienced, straightforward lender, crunch your numbers and then decide what is best for you.

If you like me to start e-mailing you detailed information in the 60651 zip code (let me know if you would consider other zip codes within the city of Chicago) for rentals and purchase, just e-mail me your e-mail address and a little more information and I will provide you with as much information about rentals and
for sale properties I can. What size property are you looking for i.e. # of bedrooms, # of baths and parking

Hope to hear soon from you, just e-mail me directly to
Edith YourRealtor4Life! Working always in the very BEST interest of her clients....

$2000 per month will get you quite a bit Lorrean...both for buying and renting. It may be better to buy if you can qualify. It really depends on your plans and what ideally fits you. It is probably best if you share dialog with me or a very experienced real estate agent as to what is needed personally. I don't work for the company to whom I web referenced you but they do a ton of rental and sales via internet. Hope this helps.
