Here’s a lovely old brick two-flat in the Old Irving Park area that can be had for just under half a million bucks. Originally built in 1911, the home stands on an oversized lot and features a huge yard. The nice thing here is that much of the original architectural details—original doors, molding, built-ins—are still in tact. The listing notes indicate that this one is actually zoned to be a three-flat, so there’s a chance to make some money by finishing the basement as a separate apartment. If you’re looking for a nice home but need to make some rent dollars to cover the mortgage, this one is a good option. It’s seeking $499,999.
