Want to live close to the lake but have a tight budget? Here’s a nice two-bedroom, one-bathroom unit on West Roscoe Street that can be had for just $249,000. It’s not the biggest two-bedroom and there aren’t any sweeping skyline views from its windows, but for the budget-conscious buyer, this one could fit the bill. As far as the location is concerned, you’re getting into a dense, walkable area at a good price—and the lakefront is only blocks away. Unlike many other buildings nearby, the monthly assessment on this one is quite low at $335.
