Opening day showdown: South Side condo takes on North Side condo

White Sox

In honor of opening day at Comiskey – oops, did we forget to call it U.S. Cellular Field? – we thought we’d pit a North Side listing against a South Side one.

In Bridgeport, this home-seller aims to grab your attention by addressing you as a “High Class Sox Fan.” The one-bedroom condo, located in the neighborhood that spawned the Daley clan, features granite counters, stainless steel appliances, a Jacuzzi tub and ceramic tile in the kitchen and bathroom. The roughly 850-square-foot unit is listed at $169,900.

In Wrigleyville, this seller is hawking a two-bedroom one-bath condo for $254,900. We’ll accept that the place has granite counters more than an inch thick, under-mount double bowl stainless sinks and a refurbished entryway. But what about this claim: “Tons of residential parking everywhere.” Makes us want to mouth off like new Cubs manager Lou Piniella firing a Lee Elia-like tirade at spoiled fans when the team is officially out of contention by June 1st.
