    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.

    ' I seem to recall that some past discussions about bike lanes (thinking about Glenwood in particular) were less than productive when people with strong biases, and not a lot of empathy, weighed in on the discussion.'

  • To the contrary, public meetings about bike lanes are highly productive when people clearly express their strong preferences and opinions so that decisions can be made. In some past meetings there was strong opinion that bicyclists requests and demands neither reflected the general feeling of a community nor were in the general best interest of a community. Democratic decision making requires votes and opinions which some call biases. Empathy isn't a requirement of the democratic process and never has been.
