    What will $1,300 rent you in Chicago?
    Curious just how far your dollar goes in Chicago? We've rounded up the latest rental offerings via rental site Zumper to get a sense of what to expect when it comes to finding housing in Chicago if you're on a budget of $1,300/month. Read on for the listings.
    http://abc7chicago.com

  • headsup not available

    $ 1300 a month = $ 15,600 to your landlord and forever out of your pocket. $ 1300 towards your condo or home payment = $ 1300 to you as the landlord. Not difficult to understand. In 20 years you would have paid down $ 312,000 ! Did I mention you would also enjoy an increase in your real estate value. That is a lot of money in your! pocket.

  • If you don’t have the money on hand to start the process (at least half of society and I’m being generous) or the consistent income to maintain it and build an 8 month untouchable emergency reserve on hand, then it’s a non-starter. Plus people pick up and go a lot...

    If you don’t have the money on hand to start the process (at least half of society and I’m being generous) or the consistent income to maintain it and build an 8 month untouchable emergency reserve on hand, then it’s a non-starter. Plus people pick up and go a lot more than we did 30 years ago. If everything doesn’t go to plan you could end up in the red within 2 years. More variables than not have to be in your favor. I don’t think the majority of society can do it. Wages are the same as they were 15 years ago. It’s only going to get more out of reach.
