We buy houses throughout the greater Chicagoland area if you want to sell your home in Chicago fast. We buy homes in Cook, DuPage, and Kane counties. Below are some of our top neighborhoods and residential areas in the Chicagoland area where we buy houses.

Lincoln Park

Lincoln Park is one of the oldest communities in Chicago, and its unique history is written in the architecture of its restaurants, shops, and bars. Unfortunately, this also means a high cost of living. Lincoln Park is beautiful. The residential streets are lined with trees and old brick houses. There are several parks, a famous zoo, and a nature museum. There are also many places to have a cold beverage on Lincoln Avenue.

With the increased cost of living in Lincoln Park, you probably have more than one reason you need to sell your house. It may be time to downsize or maybe the mortgage has become overwhelming. Whatever the reason, We Buy Ugly Houses is here to help you sell your house fast with an all-cash offer. Our property specialists understand the area and can give you an offer the same day they visit your house. Contact us today to sell your house fast in Lincoln Park.


Located East of Bricktown and North of the Near North Side, Lakeview features a mix of houses trending towards the high-end and is a hotspot for young professionals. In addition, Lakeview is home to Wrigley Field and Wrigleyville. So if you're a true baseball fan, this is the area for you.

Several CTA train lines go through Lakeview, so getting downtown for work isn't a hassle. For parking, it's mostly street parking. Make sure to call dibs on your parking spot with an old lawn chair IF you shovel it out during winter. It's an honored Chicago tradition.

But owning a house in a prime location can be expensive. If property taxes and upkeep are getting the better of your finances, we have a solution. Sell your house fast and move on to a more affordable situation. Since 1996, more than 140,000 satisfied sellers have sold their homes fast for all-cash with offers they can trust from We Buy Ugly Houses. Contact your local property specialist to sell your house for cash in Lakeview.

Logan Square

Just west of the Kennedy, and on the blue line is Logan Square. This area is up and coming and popular with young professionals. It's also known for its restaurants, art scene, breweries, and fun bars. It's easily a top 5 area for bar-hopping or dining out.

The area is a good mix of recent grads, young professionals, and families. There is a lot to do, but you can also enjoy a quiet weekend here.

But maybe you’ve had your fun living in a lively district. If you’re ready to move to a different area, we can make you a cash offer on your house. Contact our trusted cash home buyers to sell your house in Logan Square.  

Wicker Park/Bucktown

Wicker Park is very close to Logan Square, but it has a different identity. It has more bars and restaurants than nearby areas, so it's a bit of a destination for dinner and drinks. The area features high-quality restaurants, bars, and manageable street parking.

Young professionals and young married couples are a big demographic in this area. Lots of places stay open late. It’s no wonder the movie Wicker Park was set in this mainstay Chicago neighborhood.

But maybe you’re ready for a change of scenery? Maybe you want to downsize your house or feel like neighborhood isn’t the same as it used to be. We can help you move on to a place that better fits your lifestyle. Contact your local home buyers and learn how to get a cash offer on your house in Wicker Park!

Oak Park

Oak Park is one of the near Western suburbs in Chicago and a popular suburb in the post-WWII boom. The neighborhood features multiple houses designed by the renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright. There are also museums in the area dedicated to Wright and famous author Ernest Hemmingway.

Residents in this neighborhood can easily commute downtown via the Eisenhower Expressway and O'Hare airport. But just because a neighborhood has nice attractions, doesn’t mean it’s the best fit for you.

Are you having trouble making ends meet? Maybe the mortgage payments are too high and you’re in danger of a foreclosure. You don’t have to face that kind of pressure alone. Contact We Buy Ugly Houses to sell your house in Oak Park.
