The Hunt for a Home: City vs. Suburbs Part 1

Ah the age old question that has faced many a homeowner with a growing family: do you stay in the city or move to the suburbs? Do you forsake the hustle and bustle of the metropolis for the quieter, although seemingly less awesome, life in the “country.”

Ah the age old question that has faced many a homeowner with a growing family: do you stay in the city or move to the suburbs? Do you forsake the hustle and bustle of the metropolis for the quieter, although seemingly less awesome, life in the “country.”

With the help of our friends over at NBC’s LXTV Open House, we followed a Chicago couple, Lauren and Allen, on their quest to answer that very question. They are working with Coldwell Banker agent, Karlina Mina with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in the Chicago area, to see some options in each locale and ultimately determine where they’re going to put down some roots now that they’re more than just a carefree couple.

Will they choose life in the Windy City or make the move to a place with more space? In Part One of “The Hunt” Karlina shows Lauren and Allen a nice townhome in the Lakeview section of Chicago. This afternoon we’ll take a look at Part Two when Lauren and Allen head outside the city to observe life in the ‘burbs and ultimately make a decision.
