When <a href="http://www.chicagomag.com/Radar/Deal-Estate/" target="_blank">Dennis Rodkin</a> wrote "The New Rules of Real Estate" for <em><a href="http://www.chicagomag.com/" target="_blank">Chicago</a></em> magazine back in 2000, the housing market was a hotbed of activity--but no longer. The mortgage crisis put the kibosh on many things – leaving some folks struggling to stay in their homes and others desperate to get out. Thus, the new game needed new rules. So, <em>Eight Forty-Eight</em> asked the author of the old rules to share his annual update of the Chicago real estate rulebook. Rodkin writes the<em> Deal Estate</em> column for <em>Chicago</em> magazine.</p><p>The October issue of <em>Chicago </em>magazine hits newsstands Thursday but Rodkin gave <a href="http://www.chicagomag.com/Radar/Deal-Estate/September-2011/A-Look-at-One-Aspect-of-Chicagos-Annual-Real-Estate-Charts-Time-on-the-Market/" target="_blank">a preview</a> on his blog.</p><p><em>Mocean Worker, "Ya Damn Right", from the album Candygram for Mowo!, (Mowo!
