Go to the Alderman's office and ask about the lot. It is very rare for the city to sell single lots, but if there is a possibility, the alderman's office will know.

I would need much more information to give you the best answer. feel free to call or email me back.
This is a process that needs to start with an interview to help you decide what your priorities are and what you can afford.
Feel free to call (773) 732-9123 or write me back, davehanna2realtyexecutives.com.
10- 15 minutes on the phone would be a good start.

Yes, certain property types/neighborhoods/price points are very fast moving. Strange how quickly it changed after all those brutal years.

Can't help you with the reviews of Hamilton. But here is a link to the CPS school attendance boundaries, in case you're thinking of the surrounding area.

I think that you would want to work with the same agent provided that you have a strong relationship and you are satisfied with their service. However you should speak with your agent to make sure they are familiar with the area and property type - Make sure that they are willing to do both.

The best place to view the Chicago skyline, in my humble opinion, is from the deck of a boat out on Lake Michigan, hopefully owned by a friend. There's not much better than having a friend who owns a boat, likes to sail, and is willing to invite you aboard.

If you're not fortunate enough to have a friend who owns a boat, the skyline of Chicago, when viewed whilst driving southbound on North Lake Shore Drive ain't too bad, neither.

Rent or Purchase?

How about Downtown Des Plaines or Elmhurst. If you are willing to go further, Evanston.

That is a great quetion for which I have no clue, but I would think that the building department could tell you. If you are wanting to make an addition you will need a licensed contractor so you could also ask him. He probably will not know the answer, but might find the right person in the buiklding department who will know the answer. All I know is that you cannot do anything to a coach house except tear it down. ... more

Try this website for data:

Ultimately, drive by the area and visit the building to see how you feel.

Do you like the neighborhood, amenities, etc?

Work with a Realtor to help you in your search.

You can go to your county assessors site, here in Tucson, AZ it is Pima County Assessor site. You can look up a property by address, or the owners full name if you have it. That will provide you with the owner(s) details. Hope that helps.

Best of luck.
