Houses in Chicago that go for a bunch of money look like they should be about $100,000. Let's just say that.
In terms of liveable downtowns, it's better than the others. But in terms of actually raising a family/having a home with a yard, you'd need to drive out to Gurnee or something to get something decent. You may define decent in different terms too.
San Diego is probably one of my favorite cities. But I also liked Fort Lauderdale. I prefer beachy to downtown living. Tampa was decent too. Tampa had decent condos. Indy's pretty cool for a Midwest city.
Chicago is just not worth the daily bus/driving headache and condo living can only last for so long. At least with LA, you can buy a decent-looking house. Both have too high COL for me though.
