$900k in Joliet in this economy? good luck- the taxes alone would crush a guy- what? $30-$40k so your kids can go to Joliet schools and support deadbeat City employees?

At the end of the day though you have to still admit you are living in Joliet. Why not take that money and move to a better area?

to afford those taxes you would need to be an ex-pro ball player-oh wait-that is who owns it now.

Not enough land for that money!

@lady di- you are right about white stone/brick's ugliness- it should be banned as a building material. people of Greek and Italian descent love it though- Tinley/Orland Park are full of this style of home

Maybe the new city manager Jim Hock will take out another loan to buy it then dump it on us when he leaves.

You people are so rude! I agree there are parts of Joliet that are not so appealing but there is a lot that is. Keep your rude comments to yourself. I'm sure whichever town you live in isn't all that great! Jerks!
