Why Lakeview?

Lively and accessible, Lakeview is the perfect blend of everything Chicago has to offer. Not only is the neighborhood home to the legendary Chicago Cubs baseball team and their iconic ballpark, Wrigley Field, but it's also the spot for a wide array of nightlife and entertainment.

For those looking for something scenic, Lakeview lives up to its name, offering residents gorgeous views of Lake Michigan with easy access to the Lakefront Trail. It's also host to Chicago's annual LGBTQ Pride Parade, and Lakeview's chunk of Halsted Street is home to numerous LGBTQ resources and support centers.

Lakeview is the second largest ward in the city, with a population of more than 98,000 folks - a group that once included Charlie Chaplin, among other famous film and music stars. Here are a few handy resources for learning more about Lakeview:

It's been weeks. You've fretted about pricing your home correctly and researched your neighborhood market extensively. You've sprung for staging and high-quality photography. But now, your seller's journey is finally approaching its amazing end. Your listing agent has helped you secure the perfect buyer for your Chicago home, and now it's time to seal the deal.

You are under contract on the sale of your home.

So, that leaves you with just one loaded question: what comes next?

1.) Get in Contact with Your Real Estate Attorney

Why the West Loop?

Running along the western bank of the Chicago River, the West Loop is a vibrant neighborhood on the rise, full of great restaurants and nightlife.

Though not an official MLS neighborhood (we used the zip code 60608 to gather our data), the West Loop is typically considered to be bounded by Grand Avenue on the north, Ashland Avenue on the west, the Eisenhower Expressway on the south, and the Chicago River on the east. It is a part of the Near West Side, which puts it close to Little Italy, Greektown, and the United Center, home of the Bulls and the Blackhawks.

Formerly an industrial manufacturing and warehouse area, the modern West Loop has all of the sophisticated amenities - including art galleries, clubs, theaters, and world class eateries - that make Chicago a destination for buyers. Are you one of them?

Want to know more about the amazing dining, culture, and community available in the West Loop? Here are a few places to start:
