Many Chicago residents these day are actively searching for homes for sale in the Gold Coast. How do you find a great home? What are some tips and tricks from an "area expert" on locating your dream condominium in the Gold Coast? Here are some tips and tricks:

First, start online. A resource such as ChicagoCondoFinder.com is a great place to "let your fingers do the walking" or your "mouse do the clicking." We have a specific page on Gold Coast Chicago Real Estate, specifically homes for sale in the Chicago's Gold Coast. Set aside some spare time, and browse through listings of homes for sale. Second, make a shortlist of the properties you'd like to see. Currently, for example, we have listings at 1547 North Dearborn Parkway, 1508 North State Parkway, and 1442 North Astor Street - any of these addresses would be a good starting point. But, as anyone knows, it's one thing to see a listing on the computer and another to see it in person. Third, identify a realtor with whom to work. In this age of computers, people often mistakenly believe that the computers can do everything. But this is not the case. An expert realtor can help you with not just condos for sale but also the neighborhood, schools, and ambience. He or she can suggest ideas that you might not have thought about, and certainly didn't search for. Finally, return to the computer and work with your realtor expert to revisit available condos for sale. By zigging and zagging among the "real world," the "computer," and your expert realtor, you can work together to identify not just condos for sale but the best condos for sale in the Chicago area that meet your preferences and budget.
