These three neighborhoods in Chicago are not only a great investment, but a great place to live.
I have visited Chicago only twice, but I remember being instantly enthralled by the amazing rivers and canals that wind through the city, the beautiful buildings downtown, and the overall cleanliness and access to luxury amenities in the city proper.
Last year, according to Midwest Real Estate Data, sales of home and condos in the area totaled $29.8 billion, up 1% from 2013, but the number of local homes sold dropped to 103,078, down 6.2 %.
2015 has been much of the same, which means it’s a pretty good time to buy. If you are looking to move into the Chicago metro area, here are three neighborhoods worth a look.
Considered one of the trendiest neighborhoods in the country right now, Bucktown/Wicker Park is located close to downtown, which draws many artists and musicians. Divided by North Avenue, this neighborhood is a great mix of trendy loft spaces, and expensive condos and townhomes.
Seven miles south of the Loop on the South Side, Hyde Park is well known as the home of President Barack Obama. The neighborhood is home to some of Chicago’s more prestigious educational institutions such as The University of Chicago.
Known for its top tourist attractions, South Loop is a neighborhood full of luxury high-rises and townhomes, and boasts attractions such as the Shedd Aquarium, Adler Planetarium, and the Field Museum. South Loop used to be considered a slum, but development has turned it into one of the more sought-after neighborhoods in Chicago.via ] [ via ] [ via ] [ via ] [ via ][ via ]
