I would like to introduce you to our new website called the Chicago Real Estate Scene.
There are a couple of things that make this site somewhat unique. One is that it actually allows you to search by Chicago neighborhoods. Many websites out there claim to allow a neighborhood search but only actually allow search by the mls "area". The problem is that these "area" searches do not map well to the actual neighborhoods and some popular neighborhoods have no "areas". Wicker Park, Bucktown, Gold Coast, Streeterville, South Loop, and Old Town do not have corresponding mls "areas".
For the budget minded we make it real easy to search for great foreclosure properties. Just click on advanced search and the foreclosure tab and you can pull up just those homes.
In addition we will be adding some great content specific to real estate in Chicago and the near western suburbs. I look forward to seeing you there. (and please "like" us when you get there :)
