If living like Mayor Emanuel when he was a renter isn't for you, maybe owning a piece of Illinois gubernatorial history is more your speed.

The Ravenswood Manor home of former Governor Rod Blagojevich and his family is on the market. Patti Blagojevich is listed as the selling agent for the five bedroom, four bathroom bungalow for River Realty, the real estate firm she currently works for. The Blagojeviches have the home generously listed at $1.07 million.

Both the home at 2934 W. Sunnyside and a condo owned by Rod Blagojevich in Washington, DC have been put up as collateral for his $450,000 bond in his corruption case, meaning he could lose both if he tries to flee to avoid his sentencing.

That sentencing has been postponed indefinitely by Judge James Zagel as he readies to hear the corruption trial of Springfield power broker William Cellini.
