Kimball and Armitage

I'm thinking of moving just east of Kimball and Armitage. Good idea? Bad idea? What should I know before making the decision? I was previously living right off of Logan Square but lease is up and I have to relocate.

Also, I'm a female, I would want to bike and drive and walk places in Logan Square.

    The Imperial Gangsters at one time went Spaulding to Central Park and Wabansia to Wrightwood not that long ago, but fortunately they are not what they used to be. You can thank te CPD and the FBI for that. RAKARWOWSKI is correct, Now is the time to buy.

Chicagos Rat Problem ! ! !

Why isn't anything being done about the major Rat problem. It seems like the rat problems has gotten worse. I see rats almost every day running down alley ways and running in between yards in matter of fact my Dog chases them all the time when she seen one so that's why I ask why isn't anything being done about the major Rat problem. I live in the Logan square area and I can just picture the rest of the city's Rat problem

  • I'm a believer in CATS!!! While the 606 was under construction, they moved the huge and old rat village into the close neighborhoods. Last winter I thought I would go crazy with rats in the wall (they chewed thru 3 layers of good brick in the basement and got in.)...

    I'm a believer in CATS!!! While the 606 was under construction, they moved the huge and old rat village into the close neighborhoods. Last winter I thought I would go crazy with rats in the wall (they chewed thru 3 layers of good brick in the basement and got in.) Then 'Smokey' moved into the basement thru a broken window and have lived here every since (sometimes inviting friends in for a quick meal) and I see rats elsewhere (and PLEASE REPORT!! REPORT!! to the city so they bait) but gone! gone! Yes, be careful of the wild birds....but amazing difference...

  • Kasha Long time Logan Square resident

    I used to see them occasionally in the alley and only at night. Now, even in the daytime, they come right up to you on your front porch.

Experience with Housale.com?

Good afternoon! Does anybody have any experience with Housale.com? Thanks

  • CGF

    I cannot offer any experience with Housale. I think taking a Carmax approach to selling your home is likely to serve the buyer and not the maximizing sales price for the seller. I expect the convenience would be costly.

    I am real estate broker and do most of my sales in Logan Square/ Avondale and while biased I can offer you insight into the current market. I would tell you with high demand and low inventory in the area you are best to get your property exposed to the open market. Multiple offers are common today and you can get the true value for your property.

    Taking one entity's offer would likely result in you leaving money on the table. You can offer your property AS-IS if you are looking for a sale without making repairs.
    Selling your property doesn't need to be intimidating.

    Hope this is helpful.

Piano Mover

Hello I need to move a studio upright piano up one flight of stairs. Any recommendations? Thanks!

  • Yes! An unexpected and nice surprise.

  • Old Irving Mar 30-year Old Irving Resident

    We used Kevin's Piano Moving from Antioch. No problem moving from one location to another in Old Irving Park. We got them off of Angie's List after seeing great reviews. They ended up being $75 less than anyone else and did a great job!

The permit allows for a first floor office to remain, and a second floor area at 2354 N. Milwaukee Ave., to be converted to allow for tavern use.

    LOGAN SQUARE - It appears that East Room is not only in the process of applying for a late night liquor license, but also expanding. The Logan Square bar/venue was issued construction permits this week to rehab the building, including converting space on the second floor.
