Readers of this blog know how much I love  Chicago Bungalows!

In today’s market, those buyers who want a single family instead of a condo should seriously consider the benefits of owning a bungalow!

  • FHA Loans Available on conventional sized mortgages — 5% down, great rates, and assumable (these rates won’t stay low forever!!
  • 203K rehab loans – cheap money to fix up your house!
  • Energy Saver Grants for rehab
  • Property Tax freeze for rehab in historic districts
  • Own a piece of Chicago history!
  • Prices have come down so low that you can find them under $300,000!
