Great questions. Rogers Park is our home. We are opening our new offices at 1225 West Morse and obviously we have a lot of confidence and expectations for the neighborhood. As for your questions, if you purchase at a good price, a rental condo could prove to be an excellent investment especially given the present market prices and available interest rates for financing. The rental season in Rogers Park peaks in March/April but remains consistently good throughout the year. The peak is driven in large part by Loyola and Northwestern students looking in the area but is influenced by many other factors as well. You will find a strong rental market for good apartments in the area at most times of the year. If you select a good location close to the trains, you should have no problem finding quality tenants. As for rent you can expect to receive, I think that you could expect to get $1350-1500 for the apartment you describe. You can look at our site and view the many Rogers Park listings that we currently offer to get an idea of pricing: In unit laundry and parking would be two very important selling points As for the neighborhood, there are certainly trouble spot in Rogers Park and it has its fair share of crime but I would say that it is no more concentrated than many other similar communities along the lakefront.

Good luck with your search, and if you need our assistance please feel free to call on us. FYI: our new office opens December 1 and we also have offices at 5650 N Broadway.

As everyone else has said, this is property specific. But, for the whole Rogers Park MLS area, the Median and Average prices are very similar and right now sit at around $300k. In 2008 that was $349k.
In 2000, that was $339k.

I am not sure what you are looking to benchmark, but there you go, from The Chicago Association of Realtors Archive.

I would be glad to do a valuation for your home and / or the immediate area if you want more detailed data.

Your association can delegate the approval. It is not difficult at all. There are many companies out there charging ridiculous fees to help. If you are selling or buying, it's best you team up with a lender who will help free of charge. That's correct, free of charge. The process is quite simple.
