One of 77 officially designated community areas in Chicago, Bridgeport stands out from the rest of the pack thanks to its culturally-rich history and trendy present.

Located about three miles southwest of the Loop, Bridgeport is a neighbor to Pilsen, McKinley Park, and Armour Square, and puts sports fans in convenient proximity to Guaranteed Rate Field, home to the Chicago White Sox. It’s also been called “a haven for artists and creative types” by Choose Chicago, and was named one of the city’s “coolest neighborhoods” by CNN.

Before its current status as a destination for art and culture, Bridgeport was renowned for being one of the oldest neighborhoods in all of Chicago. It has been the home or birthplace for five mayors, and is also home to the breaded steak sandwich, a Chicago original that still draws visitors to the city.

Curious what this area’s condo and home markets look like? Let’s take a look:

Although many Chicagoans thrive in the winter (with a few who even dip into our icy Lake Michigan waters during the chilly months), most of us are thrilled when spring finally arrives.

Well, patio dwellers and 606 runners, it’s time to celebrate. The days are getting longer, and the temperatures are starting to rise into the 40s and 50s. Spring is finally coming to Chicago!

If you’re pretty keen about the housing market, then you know how important timing is for the spring. In fact, conventional wisdom is that you should start paying attention before the real spring even hits.

If you’ve kept up with our blog, then you know that we think of the Super Bowl -- that big game positioned in early February -- as the actual date when the real estate market really starts to bloom. It’s during this time, in late February and early March, that the market starts to get that springtime pep in its step once again.

A group of students head to school at a CPS high school.

When it comes to finding the best Chicago high school for your family, where should you start?

Finding a Chicago public high school that fits the needs of your family, especially your young student, can be a complex and long process. But, fortunately, there are plenty of resources out there to help, so you won’t have to navigate this daunting prospect alone.

Let’s dive into some important topics that you and your family will want to explore as you move from elementary to high school in the Chicago Public Schools (CPS) system.

In this guide, we’ll discuss some of the types of high schools and program offerings that are out there, before listing some of the most well-regarded CPS high schools.

Sometimes, taking a “wait and see” approach can be sensible.

If you’re waiting for a dozen cookies to come out of the oven, for example, taking a few extra minutes could make all the difference if you’re in the mood for a batch with truly crispy golden brown edges. Or if you’re waiting to make some big ticket purchase - a car, a piece of furniture - sometimes it makes more sense to give it some time and some thought, since stores are often having big promotions and discounts throughout the year.

So sometimes, playing the “waiting game” is going to be the right call. There can be no denying that. But if you’re looking to purchase a home in the coming months? Right now, the market is sending clear signals that it’s time to get moving.
