The two-flat in Park Manor where Al Capone, his wife, his mother and his sister lived in the 1920s, which the most recent owner lost in foreclosure in 2018, is coming on the market Feb. 9.
The asking price is $109,900, said Ryan Smith, the Re/Max Properties agent representing the two-flat, which stands on the equivalent of 2.8 standard Chicago 25-by-125-foot lots in a neighborhood of mostly bungalows and two-flats. Smith declined to identify the seller, but Cook County property records show that MTGLQ Investors, a distressed-property subsidiary of Goldman Sachs, received the title to the property in a court-ordered sale in November.
The homeowner who lost the property in that judicial sale, the end result of a foreclosure action that a lender began in 2013, had the property on the market at various times between 2009 and 2016. Her price started at $450,000 and dropped to $179,900.
Alphonse Capone's wife, Mae, and mother, Teresa, signed the deed to purchase the brick two-flat at 7244 S. Prairie Ave. on Aug. 8, 1923, when the building was 18 years old. They paid $5,500. - 57 minutes ago
