While downtown Chicago’s high real estate prices cause many residents to rent, there are still some relatively affordable options to own—especially if you don’t mind squeezing into a smaller unit. Take for example this renovated one-bedroom condo listed for $199,900 along Printer’s Row, just south of the Loop proper.

Spanning a cozy 931 square feet, the corner unit boasts many upgrades including refinished hardwood floors, a rehabbed bathroom with a new vanity and subway tile shower, and a remodeled and expanded kitchen with upgraded cabinets, marble counters, and stainless appliances. The yellow paint job in the bedroom and bathroom may not appeal to the taste of every buyer, but it is easy enough to fix.

Located at 680 S. Federal Street, the downtown residence is directly across the street from Printer’s Row Park (and its seasonal farmers market) and a short walk from Grant Park and all the Loop has to offer. Assessments run $483 per month but include perks like additional storage and access to the building’s large fitness center.
