That neighborhood is a mix of Noble Square and West Town - a little bit of both. Both are great neighborhoods close to plenty of transit, retail, restaurants and bars so from a Realtor's perspective I'm a fan. I also live in the neighborhood!

Finding condo buildings that accept large dogs is always an issue. Most buildings have weight limits of 30-40lbs to keep out the big dogs yet it's usually the small ones that bark all the time. even if the building accepts large dogs sometimes the owners do not want them. It might be helpful to have an agent set up a search in addition to what you are doing on your own to try to cover all the potential bases. ... more

Excellent time to buy. Email me and I will email you back a pamphlet listing all the reasons why this Spring is THE best time to buy that we may see in decades. It is already more expensive to rent than buy in Chicago.

Hey Bob,

Hope you're having a great weekend and enjoying the weather!

Rental restrictions are becoming much more common in today's real estate market mainly because lenders/banks have a lot more restrictions in granting mortgages in condo buildings. If a building has too many rental units it just adds up to be more of a risk to the respective bank. Banks don't like risk! With that said, if you must sell your home and your building is at the rental limit you don't have much of an option aside from your building changing the rules.

If one unit goes into foreclosure it will definitely impact your home's value, especially if the home going into foreclosure is the exact same as yours (in finishes, layout, size, etc.) Just think of it this way: If you were a Buyer and you noticed that your home is priced at $200,000 but the foreclosed home sold at $150,000 and it's the exact same as yours, there is no reason why a Buyer would willingly pay the additional $50,000 just because yours was not a foreclosure.

Hope this helps! If you want a bit more insight or want to chat about real estate I'm always available via email and by phone.

It's a huge city and I think you might want to rent a year before taking the plunge. Do you need to be near or have easy access to work? What is your budget? I think you need top speak with an agent or two and get a better feel for things. ... more

No surprise, but it seems like Lincoln Park has been the most resilient neighborhood over the past year. There are single family homes in areas of Ravenswood, Lake View and North Center that have sparked some bidding wars due to the low inventory, but overall homes prices have still been falling. ... more
