Hello, Neighbours

I am an out of town investor and I am wondering what the neighbourhoods along 61st street are like? Would this be considered a war zone?

  • Mark Conroy Real Estate Investor

    When I get a chance I will. I'm actually out on the west coast, so its a bit of a commute...lol

  • Mark C. All of chicago is generally a war Zone. It's overcrowded, an folks tend not to trust each other enough. And some are to inconsiderate of others. They think they derserve more room and that everyone else is encroaching on them
