Chicago's Most Expensive Condos For Sale

As we start the beginning of November and approach the final stretch of the busy fall season, now seems like a good time to take a closer look at some of Chicago's most expensive condos currently on the market. Although moving conditions may not be ideal during the busy holiday season, searching for, and ultimately buying a condo around this time of year can sometimes bring you lots of savings, as most home buyers have either already jumped on an available unit, or will push their move back until after the new year.  

If you happen to be in the market for a new luxury condo in downtown Chicago, looking to take advantage of what's traditionally a down time for the local real estate market can certainly be a good idea in terms of seeing rock bottom prices. But be warned, inventory is usually also at its lowest point around the holidays, so finding your dream home or condo might not be as easy as one would hope. In any case however, it never hurts to look, so to help jump start your holiday home search, here's a closer peek at some of Chicago's most expensive condos for sale so you can start the process of securing your new place long before the new year, and well ahead of when prices and competition inevitably heat back up.
