Which Downtown Chicago Condo Do You Prefer?
Just as in music, movies, clothing, or cuisine, people have different tastes when it comes to real estate for sale in Chicago. Some buyers prefer an urban style loft for sale in the West Loop while others may seek a luxurious high-rise condo in Streeterville with an array of building and living amenities. Of course whatever your preference, one real estate type certainly isn’t better or worse than another and again, it all comes down to what you happen to like.
So for fun, I’m going to present two different condos for sale in Chicago—both with the same purchase price. Both condos are situated in high-rise buildings in downtown Chicago, however, one is located in the River North neighborhood, while the other is in Chicago’s Gold Coast right off Lake Shore Drive. As any Chicagoan would tell you, location play a big role in deciding where to live, so perhaps the address may sway your option on which condo you would prefer, or maybe it’s the difference in interior finishes that ultimately is the determining factor.
As mentioned, the purchase price for both condos is exactly the same at $540,000 and other information on each residence is listed below. So, the big question is, which condo do YOU prefer? Feel free to comment below and let us know some of the you look for in a new condo for sale in downtown Chicago!
