Southport Corridor

“West Town” is a bit of an enigma – it’s both a generic term to refer to a large swath of Chicago’s west side, and a smaller neighborhood unto itself. It’s diverse, quirky, and a hive of activity. Homes are an eclectic mix of vintage and modern, ranging from modest worker’s cottages to luxurious new-construction single-family homes.

Noble Square

This is one of the value neighborhoods in greater West Town. Bordering Wicker Park and East Village, it offers its residents easy access to those neighborhoods’ amenities, while remaining somewhat lower-priced. There’s little demolition to make room for newer homes.

Roscoe Village

The name is short for East Ukrainian Village, but East Village has an identity of its own. An eclectic mix of vintage and modern, tree-lined streets, and vibrant shopping & dining corridors that create the perfect backdrop for urban life, close to downtown but bucolic enough to almost seem suburban in certain areas.

The Power Of Home Ownership Vs. Renting – Make 33% Annually On Your Downpayment!

Well Here Is Even A More Impressive Stat!

If you purchase a property, you will make 33% on average on your down payment / investment annually in opposed to renting!  This includes monthly savings vs. renting, tax savings, principal pay down, and modest 3% appreciation.

The main assumptions are that the market rent for a $425K 2 bed 2 bath w/ Garage condo is $2600/mo. Then assume 20% down (higher returns actually are achieved for putting less down), a 3.5% interest rate, 28% Incremental Tax Bracket, $250/mo assessments, $500/mo taxes, and 3% annual appreciation.  Every situation is different but this is a very typical, realistic, and conservative set of assumptions.
