Recent graduate and new teacher looking for somewhere to live. Now what?

Asked by Barbara Roman, Chicago, IL Tue Aug 14, 2012

I just graduated from St. Xavier and have a teaching position at a school on the Southside - I need help finding somewhere relatively cheap and close to 103rd St. to live for awhile. Any suggestions, ideas, or places for me to rent? Please help!

I think Ashburn and Washington heights would be an ideal place for your home search. These communities are close to your job and you get a lot for your money.

A professional Realtor can help you search gor the best possible options. A good one will sit down with you and discuss your current and future housing needs. Interview two or three and find one thay fits your personality. Good luck!
