I'm a mortgage banker with Primelending and I also own a 4 flat and a 3 flat in the lakeview area just 2 blocks from the Cubs ball park. I have owned one building for 9 years and the other for 14.
If you want to talk about rents or if you need information on how to finance this purchase I'm one of the experts. Currently I'm refinancing my 4 flat, and I have been lending in the chicago market for 20 years now.
Good luck with this investment property

Hello Gabriel,

You will get a lot of responses to your questions here. I own buildings in a few different neighborhoods, Lakeview where I have two and Edgewater where my other properties are. You are not going to find a property at the drop of a hat.
The first thing you need to do is find yourself a good knowlegable agent who knows both the buying process and investment side of the equation. Get your financing all lined up and then focus on the purchase part.
You need to set specific parameters for your investment. How long do you intend to keep it? Are you able to do any upkeep/management yourself? etc....
If you want some advice please call or email me. I will be glad to try and help you.

Many thanks in advance. Be well.

I'd love to help you find something. The category of property you may want is called a 2-4 flat. Anything more than 4 units is called "multi-family". The key to keeping units rented is to price them properly. Many properties for sale have tenants in place already. I can guide you through the process. give me a call.

THere are not many of those around near Lakeview and the prices are pretty investor unfriendlly or there are multiple offers.
My web site gives you some info on what I do for buyers including the Rebate. Let me know if you might like some help.
