So many people I talk to say it costs so much more to own their own home or condo in Old Town Chicago. Right now there are so many financing programs where you can put as low as 3.5% down and sometimes less after seller credits (ask me about it). After you figure out your mortgage payment, taxes, assessments and insurance many times your payment is less that rent and you are paying off your own mortgage and not your landlords. Plus there are tax advantages. I knew even before I was in Real Estate that owning your own property has many advantages.
This Old Town condo at 1636 N Wells, Chicago is listed at $245k with a view of Old Town Chicago and Lincoln Park neighborhood and beyond. You can walk to Lincoln Park Zoo, North Avenue Beach and the lakefront and lakefront trail, Restaurants including The Vig, Lady Gregory and Orzo’s (check out their garden patio in the back) which are some of my favorites, shopping and you are only a little over a mile from the Chicago Loop. In the heart of it all.
