Would someone do me a favor and explain to me what's going on?
A lot of these sales, on their faces, are scams: 226,000 for a tiny shack of a house, way down in the hollow on Palatine?
Is there a way I can get in on that kind of game?
Does it require banking and RE agent friends?....'cause I don't have 'em.

Homes that need nothing and that have nice close by facilities are what is selling fast. I doubt it was a shack anymore.

The real estate market is still somewhat inflated especially when one considers the current trends in employment.(Wall Street doesn't count). That along with the cities obvious collusion with tax assessments, one can see that there is still a long way to go before prices dip to realistic levels.

I am not entirely sue I agree with your assessment perspective. The fact is, interest rates are incredibly low, and the cost of repairs and home maintenance are high. This raises the values on homes that are in turn key condition. For the first time in my life, I am seeing younger couples with good jobs and solid educations/skill sets able to buy into nice homes with a future. They are slightly less picky about the exact neighborhood theya re in, because they don't have children yet, and they are able to make a difference in less popular areas.
