I agree, Chicago is overpriced. Even with decreasing home values,I'd still have to say it's iverpriced.

It's cheaper than NYC, but more expensive than Philly, I'd wager to say...

Overpriced is NYC, San Diego, San Francisco, Santa Fe, etc. IMO Chicago isnt overly bad. Someone coming from NYC would think its an absolute bargain, someone coming from Clarksville, TN would probably have a heart attack from sticker shock.

I love Chicago but I would pick Philly in a heartbeat. You cannot duplicate the feeling of being in the Northeast. Philly just has that vibe and pace of a great northeast city. Plus the people in Philly are totally (crazy) unique.

philly on the other hand is kind of miserable in my opinion. philly people bash their city a lot. and i also think philly women are the least attractive women city women in america.......that or baltimore.
Interesting because i hate cities that have too much civic pride. They tend to think their city is the greatest on Earth. Philly can be kind of bad in places, but i don't think the overall city is terrible. And I find Philly and Bmore Women attractive..well sometimes haha

I have to disagree. I would say overpriced. $300K for a cookie cutter condo is overpriced, no matter where you're coming from.
