The Chicago city housing market cooled in the first quarter of the year, with the city performing much like the suburbs. Of the city’s 77 neighborhoods, sales were down in more than half of them during the first few months of 2019. Local agents have seen homes in some neighborhoods take longer to sell than they did during the same time period a year ago.

Analysts look at three key measures in determining a local market’s vitality. This includes the number of homes sold, the average time homes sit on the market and the median sale price.

In condos and townhomes specifically, no city neighborhoods saw improvements of all three measures during the first quarter of the year. In fact, only two neighborhoods in the Chicago area saw improvement in all three key

The West Loop is about to gain a new condo project. The same developer behind the 1000M high-rise plans for a seven-story condo building across from Skinner Park.

That 42-unit building will bring condos to an area that’s been much more focused on rentals lately. The new glass and gray brick building plans for the option of a two- or three-bedroom floor plan with designs ranging from 1,200 to 2,000 square feet of living space.

Plans call for a more affordable entry price, delivered with more limited amenities than other buildings in the area. The West Loop location, however, is expected to be an enticing extra, with the nearby park and dog park.

Located at Loomis and Monroe, the condos take the place of a former nursing and treatment center. Developers hope

The McDonald’s-effect continues to have a huge impact on the West Loop’s west side as 2 more buildings recently sold for well over what was paid for each just a few years ago.

According to a new report from Crain’s, a New York-based investor just unloaded 1100-08 and 1114. W. Randolph to Chicago-based L3 Capital for $12 million, netting quite a profit in the process. As mentioned in the report, Gilman Management paid just $3.7 million for the buildings back in 2013 and 2014.

Back in 2014, MTV’s “The Real World” was filmed in the two-story building at 1100-08 Randolph, while the other building, which was the former home of Tete Charcuterie, no doubt saw a major jump in value once McDonald’s recently opened their spectacular new headquarters across the

Chicago is widely considered to be one of the most dog-friendly cities in the country. With over 20 individual off-leash dog parks in the town and dozens of high-rise condo buildings that not only allow dogs inside the building, but also feature a host of in-building amenities that specifically relate to pet owners, it's certainly hard to argue otherwise. 

But if you're looking for a new condo or home for sale around the downtown area however, pet facilities are a bit more scarce and there aren't quite as many dog parks available to home owners on, say, the north and west sides of town. So if you're trying to balance a great downtown Chicago location with easy access to a downtown dog park as well, here's a closer look at where you may want to begin
