Chicago infrastructure on the rise

Never has there been a better time to become a homeowner in Chicago.

Just a month ago, Chicago’s high-profile mayor Rahm Emanuel stood with former President Bill Clinton to announce the new Chicago Infrastructure  Trust, a huge partnership between public and private interests to fund a massive overhaul of Chicago’s aging infrastructure. Since then  more details have emerged: to quote the New York Times, “It includes projects to expand the city’s largest airport and improve its streets, water system, schools, community colleges, parks and commuter rail network. The city estimates that these initiatives will create 30,000 jobs over the next three years.”

Already an amazing city to live in, Chicago is set to get even more amazing, which can drive up property values. If you’re considering buying, now is the ideal time to get in on the ground floor of Chicago’s urban renaissance.
