    I’m thinking of buying a house in Chicago. This Humboldt Park community as well as Englewood seem like nice neighborhoods. Does anyone know how the market is looking in these areas?

      they will GIVE you a house if you have a job.

    You can get a good deal on a house in either neighborhood; but remember, guns aren’t included in the sale price. You need to buy those yourself if you want to defend yourself.
