If one thing can be said about Chicago, it's that you will never get bored living here. There is action and adventure to be found 24 hours a day, every day of the week. Whether you are taking in a symphony in Millenium Park, listening to a blues band at Empty Bottle, indulging in a deep dish pizza downtown or strolling through the rooms of the world-famous Art Institute, you will quickly find out how good this city is at dazzling its residents. It's a wonderful place to meet new friends -- the Midwest is known for its friendly vibes. Young professionals find it easy to carve out a life here because the public transportation is easy and reliable, there are heaps of fun options when it comes to drinking and dining, and there is a lot of room to keep moving up in your career in one of America's most cultured and cosmopolitan cities.

Chicago Life

The Windy City might call to mind images of skyscraping towers and monolithic museums scattered along the stunning Lakeshore Drive, but this town has more to it than visitors could begin to imagine. A quick ride on the El train will land you in old, bohemian neighborhoods and lovely ethnic enclaves that make the city feel mysterious and full of hidden wonders. Whether you're interested in music, art, fine dining or outdoor recreation, you can find it all here -- and it's all super accessible. There are tons of grassy parks nestled into the urban landscape and bike paths run along large portions of the waterfront on Lakeshore and throughout the city for easy commutes or leisure riding. It's a modern city with a lot of history and culture, and it makes an exciting place to settle down and call home for a little while.

One-Bedroom Apartments in Chicago

Chicago is a world-class city and a major hub of American culture and commerce. With a population of over 2.7 million, you can plan to meet a lot of new people and have access to many great employment opportunities within pretty much any industry. One-bedroom apartments are generally a pretty big step up from studios in terms of space. The average price for one-bedroom units is around $1,670. Some of the more expensive neighborhoods, like the Near North Side, average more like $2,000 per month. Vacancy rates vary pretty drastically depending on where you are looking. For a huge selection of one-bedroom apartments, look in the West Englewood, Bridgeport or Streeterville neighborhoods, which all have vacancy rates over 10%. Smith Park, Kilbourn Park, Brainerd and Bucktown have some of the lowest vacancy rates, which will make it a bit harder to find a great one-bedroom home.

Renting one bedrooms in Chicago means you'll probably have a decent-sized living space for dining and entertaining. Whether you're living by yourself or a significant other, it's a great option for settling into a place where you'll feel comfortable enough to stretch out and stay awhile.

April 2020 Chicago Rent Report

Welcome to the April 2020 Chicago Rent Report. Chicago rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Chicago rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

Chicago rents increased slightly over the past month

Chicago rents have increased 0.2% over the past month, and have increased moderately by 2.0% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Chicago stand at $1,097 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,290 for a two-bedroom. This is the second straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in January. Chicago's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 1.4%, as well as the national average of 1.9%.

    Rents rising across the Chicago Metro

    Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Chicago, but across the entire metro. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in the Chicago metro, all of them have seen prices rise. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

    • Naperville has the most expensive rents in the Chicago metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,784; the city has also seen rent growth of 0.6% over the past month, the fastest in the metro.
    • Hammond has the least expensive rents in the Chicago metro, with a two-bedroom median of $997; rents were up 0.1% over the past month and 0.8% over the past year.

    Chicago rents more affordable than many comparable cities nationwide

    As rents have increased slightly in Chicago, a few other large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more quickly. Chicago is still more affordable than most similar cities across the country.

    • Rents increased marginally in other cities across the state, with Illinois as a whole logging rent growth of 1.4% over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 1.8% in Rockford and 0.8% in Springfield.
    • Chicago's median two-bedroom rent of $1,290 is above the national average of $1,197. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.9% over the past year compared to the 2.0% increase in Chicago.
    • While Chicago's rents rose slightly over the past year, the city of San Francisco saw a decrease of 0.2%.
    • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Chicago than most comparable cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,102, which is more than twice the price in Chicago.

    Methodology - Recent Updates:

    Data from private listing sites, including our own, tends to skew toward luxury apartments, which introduces sample bias when estimates are calculated directly from these listings. To address these limitations, we’ve recently made major updates to our methodology, which we believe have greatly improved the accuracy and reliability of our estimates.

    Read more about our new methodology below, or see a more detailed post here.

    Methodology:

    Apartment List is committed to making our rent estimates the best and most accurate available. To do this, we start with reliable median rent statistics from the Census Bureau, then extrapolate them forward to the current month using a growth rate calculated from our listing data. In doing so, we use a same-unit analysis similar to Case-Shiller’s approach, comparing only units that are available across both time periods to provide an accurate picture of rent growth in cities across the country.

    Our approach corrects for the sample bias inherent in other private sources, producing results that are much closer to statistics published by the Census Bureau and HUD. Our methodology also allows us to construct a picture of rent growth over an extended period of time, with estimates that are updated each month.

    Read more about our methodology here.

    About Rent Reports:

    Apartment List publishes monthly reports on rental trends for hundreds of cities across the U.S. We intend these reports to be a source of reliable information that help renters and policymakers make sound decisions, and we invest significant time and effort in gathering and analyzing rent data. Our work is covered regularly by journalists across the country.

    We are continuously working to improve our methodology and data, with the goal of providing renters with the information that they need to make the best decisions.
