Video: Chicago's Best Condo Search Engine

Only one search engine in Chicago allows you to search the entire inventory of unit types in 12,000 condos, most of them in downtown Chicago, including units not on the market.

It's Super Search at, the most-comprehensive condo database in Chicago.

Super Search allows you to check any combination of 100 preferences to create, for example, a list of all buildings within three blocks of the Red line that offer a 1BR/1BA unit, have a pool, deeded indoor parking, are FHA-approved and allow dogs. (The result: only one building, at 3660 N. Lake Shore Drive.)

The search results connect you to in-depth Building Profiles, which display up to 200 data fields, including the 2008 median sales price and ownership cost per square foot for each unit type, as well as photos and floor plans. By using Quick Comparison Chart, you can compare, side-by-side, any three unit types.

To see how Super Search works, watch this video. (After nine searches without registering, consumers may register with any participating agent for one year of free access to this
subscription-based resource.)
