Looking for a cute old home? Try North Mayfair on the Northwest side near Pulaski and Elston, says This Old House magazine. The article about the 51 best old home neighborhoods in the U.S. reported that you could find a bungalow in the 'hood from abou $218,000.

The neighborhood keeps in shape with the help of its North Maywood Improvement Agency, which helps keep out oversized developments and cleans up local parks. Pictures of the neighborhood look almost suburban and I love the effort the neighborhood is taking to keep some of the characer in the classic Chicago bungalows.

Bungalows can be a fun alternative to new construction condos ifyou don't mind living a little further from the Loop or are ooking for something with a small yard or separation of floors. If I had the inclination to fix up a property, I could see a lot of value in owning one of these cute pieces of property.
