Hello there good friends .

Iam a contractor and Investor is the Seattle area, but I want to get some idea on how is the market on Chicago  I have a good offer on Aberdeen but I dont really know the market, any Idea


@Eduardo Cedeno  Chicago is build on a grid.  This means blocks for miles from north to south & east to west.  So when you say you have a house on "Aberdeen" it really doesn't mean anything unless you identify where on Aberdeen.  Many of the blocks actually run in to the suburbs that aren't part of Chicago city proper.  So you'll need to be more specific about where on Aberdeen.

Having lived in Chicago and also owning properties in there, I can tel you one thing for sure: There are differences between day and night as you move from block to block.

So, massive due diligence please. Crime, schools, rent and sales trend on a block basis. Ask people in here who live and do business in specific area you want.
