Why Chicago?

The city of Chicago is home to nearly 2.7 million residents, making it the third largest city in the United States. There are a number of factors that make Chicago extremely appealing, to its residents as well as the 40 million people who visit each year. Due to the dozens of Fortune 500 companies with either headquarters or major operations in the area, combined with the excellent Universities and Colleges, Chicago remains a major destination for top talent looking to establish or continue their careers. However it is not just the businesses and economy that makes Chicago so attractive, it is the cultural diversity and vibrancy that makes people stay and call Chicago their home.

While buyers will see the same trends in the economy, demography and housing as other major metropolitan areas, prices are about a third less than their counterparts. With a strong steady investment and development outlook, and rising international real estate profile, Chicago is becoming the permier destination for investment.
