Satisfied buyers, Hayden and Aaron — also stars of the hit show “Amazing Race,” recently let us know:
“My husband and I looked extensively at condos in the South Loop in the spring of ’07. We exhausted the area and felt that much of what we looked at was either overpriced, too small, or that many of the units looked the same and there was nothing unique about them.”
“We had to sign another year lease at the place we were living at during that time so we stopped looking. My husband was having a difficult time convincing me to look anywhere besides the South Loop since I loved the area because of it’s proximity to downtown and the lake.
“Then, in January of ’08, my mom came to visit us and my husband and her went on a walk south of where we lived and they came across Eastgate Village. After taking a look at the model, both of them loved it. Then after I went to see the model I loved it too. ”
“There were several deciding factors for us to buy at Eastgate. First was the size of the duplex we purchased for the price. At nearly 2,000 square feet, we would’ve paid probably $550k plus in our old neighborhood in the south loop and we didn’t pay nearly that amount. We felt the condo was very unique with a roof top deck, balcony, private garage, and size of the bedrooms.”
“The second reason is that there is so much development happening in the area and we felt that was great for investment purposes too. We feel when we sell our home this can help us expedite the process and make a good return on our investment.”
“Lastly, it is still fairly close to the lake, easy access to public transportation, and very close to the freeways and the airport. It was a great decision for us to purchase at Eastgate and we are very happy we chose to do so. ”
