    Own this bright condo with Lake Michigan views for $279K
    It's said that the only guaranteed views in Chicago are eastern exposures along Lake Shore Drive. As a result, these kinds of premium properties typically command equally premium prices. This, however, does not appear to be the case with this recently listed two-bedroom, two-bathroom Lakeview residence overlooking Belmont Harbor and Lake Michigan.

    I wonder if any of the previous owners are reading this post? My building is in the process of a deconversion, the building listed about a week ago. Wondering how long the entire process took? Do they feel like it was a good deal? Did the board make any stipulation for owners to rent back to the owners if they weren't ready to move?

    This kind of situation is not always ideal if you've paid for and lived in your home for many years. I'm guessing this was maybe the case with some in this building. But if 75% of the ownership votes yes.......well then, you gotta roll with the punches, which can be hard for some of the elderly, disabled, etc, etc, even if your faced with a special assessment. I hope they got a good payout for the % of ownership they had in the building.
