  • 160K for East Garfield is not super cheap. It's not even a bargain. I've seen houses sell for half that price. For 35K more you can get building just west of tri taylor, which is much safer.

    These investors paid 25K for it and are now expecting to make a 6 fold profit. That's greedy!!! Meanwhile people who are interested in being homeowners get out bid by these vultures.

    This area is really up and coming, especially just East of the Conservatory. The transportation is unbelievable with the green line, metra stop and the expressway all within blocks. All you have to do is look at the artists and musicians swarming over here to see what's really happening. Not to mention the brave yuppie seems to be snooping around. The last 5 homes on Fulton and Carroll have been scooped up at half the price they were in 2007. Looks like its lift off time. Perhaps not coincidentally, everything just East of here already took off and is well above 2007 levels.
