Any Chicago single family homes on sale this Black Friday?
The scenes of "Black Friday" actually put fear in my heart. Check out the Chicago Tribune photo album of the carnage HERE. The barrage of door buster ads on T.V. gives me anxiety (and also interrupted my giddiness yesterday watching my 10-1 Green Bay Packers wax the Detroit Lions).
I'm afraid to leave my house on Black Friday.
The only shopping I'm worried about is for a well located single family home under $800K or a awesome two-flat under $900K. Now, you want to see me run wild towards a "door buster" just list a four bedroom (three bedroom and den/office okay), three bathroom home with a nine foot basement, two car garage near a CTA "L" for under $800K. I'll probably have foam coming from my mouth when I bust the door down.
You would think you could get a great house for this price... but Chicago is an amazing place to live. Everyone is looking for the above attributes.
Thus, the adventure continues through Lakeview, Southport Corridor, Ravenswood, Lincoln Square and Lakewood Balmoral for that great space. My clients are flexible, have great vision and are not afraid of doing some improvements.
Anyone have a door buster out there for me?
