WHY IT’S SMART TO INVEST IN THE SUBURBS OF COOK COUNTY

{{ post.title }}

Chicagoland is home to an enormous real estate market that includes an equally large amount of sub markets. Anthony Citriglia, of Essex Realty’s, has a submarket that covers many of the near north and near northwest suburbs. Here he breaks down exactly what those markets are like, how they differ from the actual city of Chicago, and how they differ from each other. 

Following the post-war boom, cheaper access to cars and the development of several Metra lines meant tons of development throughout the 50’s-80’s. Most of these stil remain owned by mom & pop Landlords. Find out what it takes to succeed in these markets as Anthony drops street-level knowledge including typical price-per door, the dividing lines where this pricing adjusts, tenant expectations, and the physical housing stock.
