Looking for a lovely yellow brick two-flat, but don't think you can afford one? While these buildings in neighborhoods like Wicker Park, Logan Square and Ukrainian Village may be out of reach for many, neighborhoods like Albany Park, Belmont Cragin, Hermosa, and Avondale have a large inventory of them at reasonable prices. For example, this two-flat on Barry Avenue in Avondale has received all of the major updates but still has many of its older architectural details like brick fireplaces, maple floors, and original doors with vintage hardware. There's also a semi-finished basement with a separate area for laundry and a neat bar space. A similar building in Wicker Park or Logan Square would be asking something in the $650-$750K range. However, this one is asking just $410,000.
