Nice rehab job. That was a foreclosure and this investor gutted it. He does tons of them and the quality of work seems to be good yet he can cover up potential 'issues' like past water problems so watch for it. Want to see it?... more

Your Real Friend in Chicago Real Estate
This isn't something that brokers can comment on. It's against Fair Housing rules. Look on the city of chicago website or police blotters. This home is no longer for sale, so if you need assistance finding a home, interview a couple of agents who know the area well.... more
It is not unusual for agents to not show pics on rentals even at this price point. Perhaps it is occupied and they are slobs or perhaps the agent is just lazy. I see it frequently. It is irritating, but not much you can do. You can call the agent and ask about the condition and/or complain about it.... more
No, this is not real. This home is on the market for $369,900. I will report it as a fake. You can barely get an apartment in this area for that rent. This type of home would rent out at around 2000 minimum.
If you need rental assistance, I have a leasing agent who knows what really is available and can help you. Please feel free to contact me and I can get you her information.... more
To answer your question, bricks are far better to use for construction because bricks are made from clay, which is a denser material, than the concrete block material. Bricks can withstand severe whether conditions better than block and because of the density of the clay material, they are less absorptive.
As such, they don't absorb as much water as concrete block and turn out to be more durable than concrete block.
Feel free to call me at the office if you wish to discuss it further!
