At the Northwestern edge of town but close to the Forest Preserve and a Dominick's-anchored shopping center, sits this 3/2 1930s cottage. A short sale has brought about a drastic reduction over its last sale price of $418K. Now asking $200K, it's being sold as is (minus the pool and hot tub). "As is" can be bad, we all know, but in this case everything looks pristine, from the hardwoods to the tile to the drywall to the giant back deck. The basement is finished with a bedroom and fireside hang-out. And the front yard bears the signs of a dedicated gardener, which could spare you landscaping hassles.
