Hi Chicgirl27,
You seem to have a beautiful property a gorgeous size and a completely renovated place always will sell better than any other. But the market being the way it is, and if you bought only 2 years ago, you bought at the height of the market and now we are not, we are in a buyers market, more properties on the market than ready and willing buyers looking and ready and willing to commit, but having said that....

Each property is an individual property and its location and circumstances are different...But in today's market and the short time you have lived in the property it is more likely that you will have to consider a loss when selling now or in the near future..., but then depending on what you intend to buy, you will also be able to buy your next property at a much lower price??? It depends what type and where and what price range!

I would love to prepare a pre-market evaluation for you, without home visit at this time, it will just show you all that is available in Hyde park and potentially in surrounding areas, but for that I would need from you,
the address, and some details of the improvements and special features (monthly assessments and what they cover, and the parking situation attached to the unit, and floor level and age of property building)

E-mail directly to as soon as I get your address and e-mail address I will forward to you a pre-market overview with listing sheets of properties sold, and those on the market at this time.

I also would suggest you let me know where you intend to move to and what kind of property you are looking for, as I could e-mail you some information there as well, so that you can crunch some numbers....

Are you thinking about moving within the city of chicago, to another condo/townhouse, or are you thinking to move further North to the Near Northern suburbs????

I would love to assist you and I am looking forward to hearing from you....
