When narrowing down that wish list for a new Chicago condo, space is often the last thing home buyers want to sacrifice. The unfortunate reality for many condo buyers, however, is that the extra square footage you so desperately want tends to be the number one factor that drives up how much you'll end up paying.

Bargains for two-, three- and even four-bedroom condos can of course be found all over the city, but for each extra bedroom that’s included in a swanky new downtown condo, the harder it becomes to find a place you like at the price you want.

As noted by the Tribune, Chaifetz’s condo features four-and-a-half bathrooms, floor-to-ceiling windows, custom built-ins inside each of the four bedrooms, a
