Stock market down, oil prices up... Buy near the CTA Brown Line

Today's stock market report has given many the jitters I suspect. Some of the "blame" of the sell off could go to oil prices hitting $99 a barrel. Yep.

Luckily we have a elevated train system and those pesky buses to get around (CTA). Well, at least for the time being.

For some reason, I see the happy condo owner near public transportation in say... Wrigleyville or Lincoln Square... hopping on the Brown Line near their house tonight on the eve of Thanksgiving. Off to their local pub to grab a pint of Guiness. Not a worry about oil prices.

It's a nice life.

By the way, if you think Chicago real estate near an "L" station isn't hot, you have not been in the market for awhile.

That would be the Brown line not Blue. You should really promote the Metra stop too. It's 13 minutes to downtown from the Ravenswood stop! If you work in the west loop it's the way to go.

Good catch on the Brown Line... thanks. I have to stop posting after long, long days.
If you search this blog for Ravenswood and Metra, you'll be pleased I push the Metra stop here in the hood.

Keep commenting... and watching out for my misinformation!
