Posted by Leila Zammatta on Monday, August 31st, 2015 at 10:39pm.

There are plenty of reasons to want to live in downtown Chicago - the amazing views, the ability to have a quick commute if you work in the Loop or nearby, all of the dining options and other amenities, close proximity to the Lake, and of course, the wonderful real estate. And while we might be biased, there are plenty of reasons why investing in and living in downtown Chicago is the smartest decision you'll ever make. Here's why...


It's A Great Investment. Chicago is the third largest city in the United States and growing everyday, so owning property in the center of it all will almost definitely pay off in the end. Even if you don't plan on living in it, you can rent out a Chicago condo to a good qualified tetant (and we can help you with that) for a fantastic rate that can cover your mortgage and more.

Gorgeous Condos And Town Homes. That should go without saying, but the luxurious properties on the market in Chicago are unsurpassed, and a much better deal than similar options in other large American cities like New York or San Francisco. Think of all the extra amenities you get by living in the Midwest!

A Fabulous Range Of Dining Options. You can find virtually any type of cuisine practically within walking distance in downtown Chicago - we have perhaps one of the best culinary scenes in the United States, if not the world. Plus there are lots of high end grocery stores if you prefer to cook yourself - a perfect environment for culinary aficionados of all kinds.

Walkability. Being able to walk to virtually anything you could want makes living in downtown Chicago desirable for several reasons - you don't need to own a car (unless you want to), you can get some light exercise every day, and most importantly, you get to enjoy the beauty of every neighborhood via CTA or Uber/Lyft/Sidecar/walking. Since living in downtown is so central, you're never more than fifteen to twenty minutes away from nearly every desirable Chicago spot.

Tons Of Shopping. There's everything you could ever want within blocks - from the Magnificent Mile and the high boutiques on Oak Street to basic convenience stores and discount retailers, you'll be spoiled for choice.

It Just Looks Gorgeous. The Chicago skyline and all the interesting architecture makes for a really unique place to live, and you'll be able to discover something new every day and in every neighborhood. And of course, you'll be able to discover new things in each area of this city of neighborhoods - which is easy to do when you live in the Loop and a short distance from nearly everything that's compelling.

Downtown Chicago Offers Variety. You can experience everything that the city has to offer only a short trip from your doorstep, from museums to ethnic cuisine to world class nightlife. Or you can enjoy relaxing in a beautiful home with luxury finishes that has everything you could ever want.
