One I saw earlier in the week was a completely remodeled condo.
A small studio but the nicest showroom-quality kitchenette I've ever seen.
This could've been mine.
It was just off Lake Shore Drive, a high-rise, and on the 54th floor. The view of the lake and city could not be beat!
But another person saw the unit the day before me and offered to buy it (instead of renting) and it was sold later that day.
It was a bit out of my price range anyway.
I told the agent I've been working with that I want something nice. Something beautiful to come home to.
Growing up, the family home was a dump and still is. It's almost 100 years-old and falling more and more apart each year.
It's very depressing and embarrassing still being there and I guess that's why I'm being so selective and not just picking anything.
I don't want to go living in one run-down place to another.
But it seems everything really nice is beyond what I can afford and what I can afford isn't all that nice.
The search continues...
