May I suggest 1747 W Pratt Avenue Unit G?

It's bank approved at $82,000 but I think it would be worth submitting an offer for $75,000.
The unit does not include kitchen appliances but it is a very nice 2br 2ba unit with parking. The HOA allows rentals.

You have lots of answers at this point and all I'd like to add is that you really really need to have an agent watching the listings daily. The great ones (price, location, value) are gone in a blink. There are investors out there with cash buying up all they can get their hands on.

This war is only helping to increase prices so I would not wait too long for that "best bargain". I live and work here in Rogers Park and I'm seeing it happen before my eyes. A 2 bedroom as you describe on Columbia was listed below $50,000. The cash buyer waited several months for an answer from the bank. The answer was $70,000. That listing is now off the market, canceled by the agent. Get someone to help you with this, an agent, me or someone else who knows the area, to start a search on the MLS.

Good luck with that. You get what you pay for and you probably will not like your choices, assuming you can find all your criteria...............which I doubt you can. Are you familiar with these areas? Do not ever consider a G (garden-basement) unit.

There is nothing wrong with garden units. My brother owns over 30 units in Rogers Park and I am starting to purchase my own, with the intention of purchasing over 50 units in the next year. I KNOW there are many units under $75K out there. With the right price and right quality finishes a garden unit can rent in no time.
