Thanks Ken. Oddly, this didn't bring up the MLSID for the property I'm looking at. The status is ACTV so, I'd expect it to show. I'll try again in a day or two as well. Thanks.

Visit the Cook County Recorder of Deeds at: Click on the left for PIN search and enter the PIN number for the property. Look for WARRANTY DEED and click on the document number. You can find the most recent purchase price that way.

Good luck, Ken.

Look at my website...get a good nsight into what it takes to build, be your own contractor...and the same basis for rehab exists in Chicago as in New Orleans with the exception of the Chicagoland you have to be careful about basements flooding, the effect of the resulting humidity as a welcome place for mold, etc.

Once you have an understanding of what it takes to rehab, with the pricing in your mind, add on the taxes and permit requirements specific to Cook County, (and there are several).
