Buying a home is always pretty exciting, but for the thrill seeker in you, nothing is guaranteed to get your heart rate going like a good old-fashioned real estate auction. Auctioneer Rick Levin & Associates is at it again — this time they're selling off 11 North Side condos and 10 townhouses in the southwest suburbs, along with several commercial properties. The condos are all in Westridge Crossing development at 6400 N. Ridge Blvd. in West Rogers Park. Not the prettiest building in the city, especially on the outside, but the homes look serviceable, and they all have new flooring, kitchen appliances and lighting. Those condos were previously priced from the $210s to the $240s, and the minimum bid is set at $45,000. The 2BD, 2.5BA townhouses in Downers Grove were previously priced from the $470s to the $510s. Two of those homes will be sold absolute, with no minimum bid. The auction will take place on Nov. 14 at the Hyatt Rosemont.
