Hello Jenny,

If you like your neighborhood and the basement is dry, I would update.

However, if you don't want to deal with 6 months of noise, contractors, and dust, you should give it a fresh coat of paint and buy something that is move-in condition.

Yes, depends on the location and the type of unit. There are 77 census tracts and over 220 neighborhoods in Chicago. There are at least 4 types of homes in each neighborhood and so about 880 different markets that all could be heading in different directions. $250,000 2br in Lincoln Square could be trending differently than $400,000 1br in River West.

If you have a specific type of home in a specific neighborhood I should be able to provide you with some trends.

An investor's TIC interest can be purchased, sold, gifted, bequeathed by will, or inherited, and is subject to property taxes, gift tax, estate and inheritance taxes in the same manner as a sole ownership property.

Consult with a Real Estate Attorney who has experience handling TIC transactions.

Here's a website that will provide you with a lot of good information:

Good luck.
