That land is owned by the city and is referred to as the "parkway". I am not sure that there is anything you can do about it. I find it amazing that these people do not clean up after thier pets. ... more

Most Coldwell Banker offices offer property management services. Call and ask. If they do not know, they will very likely know a good reputable company to recommend. Good luck.

To be honest with you, it's quite funny I always hear about flipping, and in most states it's practically illegal, and in Columbus, I dont know one "flipper" yet they keep running these idiotic shows on HGTV. I'm like "SHOW ME", I know it happened 2 years ago, nowadays, it's hard to flip, if not impossible. I would love to dispute poeple on this........Try to flip a house in columbus and make 60 g's, show mr the HUD and you will convert me to a believier!

We did a lot of research on this because we'd heard horror stories: ABF:
We've moved from Oregon to Chicago. What they quote is what they charge because they charge by space, not weight (unless you take up more room in the truck than you'd planned on). We actually got the "relocube" because we wanted storage too while we looked for a house to buy. It's worked out great!
Check out for other recommendations of you'd like full service.

Garfield Ridge has always been a hot spot. I've sold a few homes there in the past few years. Most recently on Nottingham. When you see families staying and building 2nd floor additions that tells you something. As for the future, I think it's like most of the real estate market. They're having their down slide, but I'm sure it will tuen around. Overall I think Garfield Ridge is a great buy right now with priced down and a strong future. ... more

You can either have your client pay you or negotiate with the other side for compensation. Probably easiest to have an agreement with your client to pay you. All the money comes from them anyway and then you can go out and get them the best deal without worring about the other side. ... more

Taxes are not based on your square footage, taxes are based on the amount the cook county assessor's office appraises your place for.

J R answered:
Unless sellers specifically say they would be open to a rental, I have found that most of them want to get OUT. Most either need the money for another purchase or need the money to pay off a mortgage. I have had a couple of customers who called on sales and wanted me to inquire about renting or renting with an option and I got no takes. I would suggest looking for a rental who would be interested in selling rather than a seller who might want to rent. ... more

Do some searches on Craigslist and the Chicago Reader for comparable rent rates. The property sounds like it might be sweet, but that location isn't exactly Lincoln Park. Monticello and Palmer... still kinda rough over there.

I found this, which is near and comparable, at $3200/month, but who knows how long they've been looking for a tenant... I'd start at about $2800 and see how many calls I get...

Hi Greg,

Approx. $750-$950 (depends on how well the unit has been maintained or how recent it has been upgraded or rehabbed...)

Hope this helps,

I have to say I agree. It's been a slow start to the year- with the weather the way it was and the market, but -the weather's changing and with the low interest rates, I am starting to get more calls from potential buyers. And... Brookfield IS my market!!! ... more

I have seen UAS advertised but i have not personally seen any properties that are under their management.

I do hear a lot of good things about MAC Property Management because they seem to do a great job with keeping their buildings clean as well as making sure that there is always a tenant in the units. I have NOT worked with them personally. They are based in Hyde Park but I see properties that are under their managment all over the south side of Chicago.

I got their info for you. Hope it helps:

The answer is easy. Call Peoples Energy, give them the address, and they'll tell you exactly what it was last year. Usually they'll make you fill out a form and you have to submit it via fax. Do it, though. The anwer will give you some peace of mind. Multi-unit bldgs can have huge utility bills. If you're about to acquire a building, take Peoples Energy's answer and add 10%. Natural gas prices aren't coming down. ... more
