4421 S Kilpatrick Ave • $267,750
This foreclosure is one of our ready-to-go homes on the list. It is located in the Garfield Ridge area and features 3 very large bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. Aside from the large living room-dining room combo and the eat-in kitchen, this two story house comes with a finished basement, central AC, a two-car garage, and awesome deck and patio space out back that screams the entertainment zone.
8814 S Hamilton Ave • $334,900
Though we weren’t able to take a sneak peek inside, the majesty from the outside alone brings this Tudor style, single family home to our list. You’ll find this treasure in the North Beverly neck of the woods. Beware, the seller forewarns, this gem is going to need that extra push to reach its full potential. But the good thing is, it’s off to a head start. With 4 bedrooms and 4 full bathrooms plus 1 half bath, there is a master and junior suite both decorated with balconies, and there’s even a breakfast nook.
921 W Castlewood Ter • $875,900
One of our favorites on the list, we almost wanted to save it for ourselves! This is a beautiful, lavish brick home in the iconic Uptown neighborhood, and it features a wrap around front porch—yes—a wrap around front porch, right in the city, plucked out of a suburban home magazine. The side driveway is brick-paved, and enjoy the benefits of your private, fenced yard. Maybe grow a garden for Pete’s sake.
7547 S Marshfield Ave • $49,500
Don’t let the small cost catch you by surprise—anyone who’s read or heard the story of the Three Little Pig’s has learned to always trust the all brick home. This Cape Cod design was built in or around 1950, but has added a new front porch and back deck. The block is a nice and maintained one, and the dead end street is said to cause less road traffic. The basement is unfinished, but with the right visionary, it can be flipped into a dream room.
5247 S Michigan Ave Apt 3 • $94,900
Inviting as the beauty on the outside is, the inside—from the entrance way of the Michigan Terrace Condominium—makes this third floor condo a keeper. It is being sold “as is,” and features 3 bedrooms with a bedroom converted to a laundry space. Trust us when we say that this apartment is of especial beauty. But, we understand if you need more proof, so we suggests clicking on the price tag above to see for yourself.
6044 W Wellington Ave • $254,900
How charming is this ball of sunshine? If you’re one to agree, you just ma be the one to bring this home the TLC it’s been begging for. All 3 bedrooms, the 2.5 bathrooms, and the 2 car detached garage make this buy a great one. It’s location in the Belmont Cragin neighborhood leaves it central to schools, parks, shops, and public transportation, i.e., Chicago’s never-failing CTA.
1701 N Crilly Ct Apt 1E • $322,900
If you’re thinking what we’re thinking, then you’re liking that back porch, the gleaming hardwood floors, and this modern kitchen a lot more than you’re willing to admit.

Yet, you’re close enough to the perks of night life, cafes, and banks. Enjoy the zoo, lake, farmers markets, and all the vintage, creativity which Old Town has to offer, all within walking distance.
900 S Wabash Ave Apt 403 • $229,900
A lofty space in the south loop, being sold as it, was built in 1906, before you’d reap the glitz and glamour of all the shopping centers, restaurants, and public parks. The magic behind owning a loft is that you are free to do wonders with it. So why not own a spacious loft near downtown for a low price tag?
2600 W 107th St • $140,000
Another Cape Cod style home and this time, it’s located in the West Beverly neighborhood of Chicago. Imagine the summer night, sitting out on the screened in porch with a good book or a good conversation—oh, and a nice beverage (can’t forget the nice beverage)—it’s either the making for nostalgia or the latest edition to the Friday The 13th franchise.This home features 3 bedrooms, with one bedroom on the 1st floor and two of the rooms upstairs. A garage across the alleyway is the perfect fit for two cars, so don’t miss out.

This home is in the heart of the magnificence of Chicago with 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths and exactly 1,329 square-feet.
