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.

For anyone looking to buy a piece of Chicago history, the Douglas community area is a great place to start searching.

One of 77 officially designated community areas in Chicago, Douglas is named for a famous Illinois politician (he may have debated Lincoln a few times), and stretches from 26th Street South to Pershing Road along the Lake. This area contains some or all of the Bronzeville, Prairie Shores, and Groveland Park neighborhoods.

Looking for things to do? Burnham Park runs along the shoreline of the Douglas area, including the 31st street beach, which is now named for the famous artist, educator and museum founder, Margaret Taylor-Burroughs.

Bronzeville is home to the Illinois Institute of Technology, and is one of the most culturally rich neighborhoods in the city, having once been the home of Ida B. Wells, Gwendolyn Brooks, Sam Cooke, and Lou Rawls, among countless other luminaries.
