Take the plunge and hang your hat in Chicago! The third greatest U.S. metropolis labeled as Second City, one of the world’s first-class global financial centers (Forbes 2015) and America’s 25 best cities for job seekers (Glassdoor 2016), Chicago tops in commerce, education, arts and entertainment, and great assortment of cuisine. With the big business of telecommunications, financial services, engineering, publishing, food processing and infrastructure, Chicago has become, in 2016, the home to 27 Fortune 500 companies (Chicago Tribune), the second busiest U.S. airport-O’Hare, or the fifteenth best U. S. university-the Northwestern University (Forbes) on top of other prominent institutions as DePaul, Loyola, University of Chicago and University of Illinois, or one of the most affordable in state Northeastern Illinois University. The vibrant cultural scene will appease all sorts of tastes whether they build around arts, science, sports, music, or food and drink. The Museum of Modern Art, The Shedd Aquarium, the exciting games of Blackhawks, Cubs or the world known Chicago Bulls, the concerts in the Frank Gehry-designed pavilion at Millennium Park, or the Taste of Chicago Food Festival make just a sampling of how much more one can grasp. With the great housing options, one can choose to embrace the magnificent urban life downtown Chicago or to live it up in the vast stretch of airy space across the suburbs; be a part of older hoods like Oak Park or Evanston, which boasts the top class city center (Livability 2016), or the modern suburb life in Naperville, Aurora or Glenview; put down roots in a luxury lake-side mansion nearby a nationally-ranked school along the shores of north side Chicago, or make your home in a more affordable town like Prospect Hts, Addison or Burbank. With the median sales price of $208,600.00, in the first quarter of 2016 (NAR), Chicago became the third most affordable largest U.S. metropolis and, at the same time, secured the fifth place among the most desirable American cities for foreign investors (Forbes).
