Flip This Condo - Four Days on the Market

Well, THAT long road is finally over.

Our condo is on the market!

And now we play the waiting game.

(Or Hungry Hungry Hippos.)



Thanks for indulging me while I wrote about the project that has consumed our lives for the last 6 weeks -

The renovation of our house in order to prep it for sale.

But now, the work is over.

In the meantime, MAN did the @Properties photo team do a good job.

Here are some of the photographs - and a link to our home on Zillow:

The floors are new, the cabinets are white, and the walls are gray. 

This photo really shows off the kitchen.

We went with an all-gray pallete - carpets and walls.
UPDATE - We received 4 offers after 4 days on the market!

We accepted one, and are now moving toward closing in September.

Thanks for bearing with AAAD through this series of off-topic real estate posts!

It's a bit bittersweet to lose our most tangible connection to Bucktown and Chicago.

Still, it's time for our family to move on, and for someone new to start making their own big-city memories here.

Not All AirPort Extremes are Created Equal (UPDATED)

I'm looking for a used AirPort Extreme. In all the usual places - eBay, Craigslist.  I'll probably get one this week. Why? It's a long story.  A while back, I picked up an AirPort Express A1084 router on Craigslist, and found that it was incompatible with my AirPort Utility and wireless-n network, even though it looked *identical* to the current model of AirPort Express.  So, I wrote a post on this blog about the different types of AirPort Express routers, noting that if you're looking for used Airport Express routers to extend your AirPlay network, you'd better seek out model A1264.

The A1264 plugged directly into the wall, which was incr

Review - WOW Ultra TV vs. DirecTV HR34 Genie

Here in the Chicago suburbs, we had two options for whole-home DVR services. We initially went with WOW Ultra TV, and after about 4 months, we switched to DirecTV's HR34 Genie system. (Neither Verizon FIOS nor AT&T UVerse were available in our area, so we can't review those. I haven't used Dish's Hopper, either. This is a straight compare/contrast review of WOW vs. DirecTV.) Both Ultra TV and Genie have their plusses and minuses. Both offer 1080p output, but that's primarily for the menus, as most TV content is provided at lower resolutions.  Both systems have a similar design architecture - a central hub, with multiple tuners and a large hard drive, recording and storing all TV shows, and distributing them to televisions around the house upon request.  Both systems also bring a number of "add-on" apps and have ways of accessing "on demand" content.  We've had each system for enough time to really put them through
