If you're looking for three bedroom condos that are large enough to stay in for awhile, check out Old Irving. What most people forget is this is a pretty little neighborhood filled with attractive single family homes and gorgeous brick multi-unit buildings. The main attraction is the Blue Line and the Metra Station at approximately Irving Park Rd and Kedvale. Buying near public transportation is key in Chicago real estate.
The variety is here.... new construction and gut rehab one, two and three bedroom condos... single family homes...two flats, three flats and larger multi-units... your style of home or investment is here.
I like to say the area is good for those looking to start, or already have, a family and want a home they can fit into for under $400K. There are few neighborhoods that are as attractive and affordable this far east in Chicago and on the Metra AND Blue Line. Super fast to downtown.
