Hi All,

First post here.  I'm struggling to find anything even cash flow + in the western suburbs of Chicago.  I'm going to keep looking...possibly looking at higher unit number buildings in different areas.  I don't want to end of the south side of Chicago but that's the direction i'm heading! In any case hello and glad to be here!

Welcome Jonathan! I too am new and struggling to find decent deals in my target area, but I'm only looking at listed properties right now.  I'm under the impression that unlisted properties is where it's at and you have to dig a lot to find anything worthwhile.  

It is very hard to have cash flow in decent suburbs at these prices unless it is a foreclosure/estate sale etc.  There were too many foreclosures/deals two to three years ago.  There may still be deals around Berkeley, Lyons, Melrose Park, Berwyn, etc.  which are middle class suburbs.

A lot of owners of multi-family investment properties are holding on.  Commercial loan rates are near an all time low, rents are strong and owners are holding on.   I'm always looking for new deals hitting the market.  When they hit, they go fast.
