The “stay-at-home” order means that open houses are out. But that doesn’t mean you’re out of luck. More real estate agents have turned to virtual tours via Instagram and Facebook Live, Zoom, and YouTube. This weekend, the virtual line-up includes an adorable Tudor-inspired home in Hinsdale, a stylish condo in River West, and a million-dollar townhouse in Lincoln Park.
