Newest milestone! ChicagoismynewBlog surpasses 50,000 hits!

Posted by ChicagoismynewBlog! on February 5, 2010

I have some plans moving forward with ChicagoismynewBlog!  First, plans call to get rid of the pesky “.wordpress” and just go for  I’m also starting to incorporate my very own real estate ventures in with the website such as advertising different open houses and properties that I’m directly working on.  You never know when someone comes across something they like…but now it just needs to happen!

I’m also hoping to move ChicagoismynewBlog! over to a different website and make it more of an official real estate website for myself.  We’ll see when that happens though, because it costs a lot of money depending on where I go.

RD+659. Slow sales change to success. Only 1 home left for sale in this West Loop building!

Posted by ChicagoismynewBlog! on February 5, 2010

Some of you may know of RD+659, a highrise condo building located at 659 W. Randolph Street in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood.  About a year ago, rumors were swirling about RD+659’s condos turning into rental apartments, or that the condos would see price cuts.  Well, they’re still condos but the developers brought in @properties to help sell out the building and boy, did it work.  Because of smart price reductions, sales have skyrocketed and now, only 1…yes 1 condo remains!

RD+659’s only remaining home is a 2Bed/2Bath condo with unobstructed Southern exposure, $15,000 worth of upgrades and an extra wide parking spot, all for $371,000. 

RD+659’s building amenities include an outdoor swimming pool, roof deck, fitness center, bike room, heated parking, dry cleaners, and a 24 hour doorperson.  The assessments are $460/month and it includes EVERYTHING you would need…all in one payment.  Your water, electricity, gas, cable, internet, air conditioning, and all of the building amenities.  Just think of how much all of these would cost you if you paid each seperately. 

Check out the RD+659 website and if you have any questions about the remaining home, just ask me!  Photos courtesy of the RD’s website also.
