This week's cover story | It's time to buy!

Here's what's coming up in this week's Time Out Chicago, on newsstands tomorrow:

  • You hear about people getting insane deals by snapping up foreclosures, but the process sounds like a pain in the ass, right? As these four foreclosed-home buyers can attest, it is a pain in the ass, but well worth it. Find out how to dodge obstacles like squatters, cat pee and bizarre stuff left by previous owners.

  • We're all kicking ourselves for not buying in Logan Square ten years ago. But there's a chance of redemption: Take the advice of Realtors who predict five neighborhoods that could become the next hot spots.

  • Aleksander Hemon, perhaps the best living writing in Chicago, is releasing his first nonfiction collection. He talks with Books editor Laura Pearson about why he hates New York, why he loves Chicago and the importance of telling the painful truth.
