How far can your dollars take you in Chicago?  Given the complexity and variety within the Chicago house market, finishes and square footage can vary drastically even within the same basic parameters — one budget, a minimum bedroom count and covered parking — from neighborhood to neighborhood.

In this roundup of homes and condos, we sample a curated of selected properties across Chicago – all under $600,000 sticker price – that each feature three bedrooms, at least one dedicated garage space.  Most but not all include in-unit laundry and A/C, and all of these are active listings as of Sun May 12.

To learn more about home values or neighborhood trends, get in touch!  We’re proud to work across all these neighborhoods and more – how can we help you home??
