Spring is time for fresh starts ? and for some ? moving to a new home is the best start of all! (WLS)

Spring is time for fresh starts - and for some - moving to a new home is the best start of all! So we brought in Residential real estate reporter for Crain's Chicago Business and friend of the show Dennis Rodkin to show us what $250,000 (the average home price in the Chicagoland area) will buy you in the city and the suburbs. All the homes we talk about have recently sold in the $240,000-$255,000 price range.
