View full City Guide

The "second city" is so called for being second to New York -- but don't think Chicago isn't mighty. This blue-collar city is the largest hub of industry and commerce in the entire Great Lakes region. Living in Chicago means you'll be in, or near, the very center of vibrant culture and business.

Housing in Chicago

About half of Chicago residents rent the place where they live. The vacancy rate in Chicago -- the number of rental units that are unused -- is slightly higher than the national average, so finding a suitable apartment isn't that difficult. Be aware, however, that rental rates here are a fair deal higher than the national average, with a two-bedroom apartment renting out for an average of $1,139.

In general, you'll find that Chicago varies substantially based on what neighborhood you end up in, and there's a wide range of housing available. Some areas in the city, especially near Lake Michigan, downtown and on the north side, are more expensive.

Working in Chicago

Chicago has a reputation as "the city of broad shoulders," but this is more of a reference to the city's blue-collar past than a reflection of its present. A full 23% of Chicago residents work in production, transportation and material-moving fields, a rate far higher than the national average. But white-collar jobs are well-represented in the city, too: 23% work in sales or administrative support, while nearly 12% work in management, business or finance.

Incomes here are well-distributed, but the city's average household income is slightly lower than the national average. And there's no way around it: The cost of living in Chicago is very high. If you're worried about money, you may want to live in one of the city's less expensive neighborhoods, or even the suburbs.

Education

The entire city of Chicago is served by the Chicago Public Schools district. This is a sprawling district with a very wide range of schools represented, so drawing generalizations is difficult. In general, however, you'll find that the best-rated schools are on the north and northwest sides of the city, especially in the more expensive neighborhoods located along the edge of Lake Michigan.

Things to See and Do

Chicago is crammed full of museums and major tourist attractions, many of which are family-friendly. Every summer, for instance, Navy Pier opens up to tourists, and kids love its amusement park attractions. The city's also home to the world-renowned Art Institute of Chicago, as well as the Museum of Science and Industry.

Sports are a way of life in Chicago, with fans young and old rooting for legendary teams like the Cubs, the White Sox, the Bears, the Bulls and the Blackhawks. And the food here is the stuff of legend, too: Deep dish pizza and Chicago dogs are the sort of blue-collar, hearty food that residents love to share with newcomers.

But don't think that Chicago's solely a tourist destination. The city's well-known for its nightlife, including a vibrant local theater scene that locals are powerfully devoted to. The Steppenwolf Theatre Company has been sending its alumni to the big and small screens since 1974, and the Second City comedy troupe has produced legendary comedians like John Belushi, Mike Myers and Tina Fey. If you'd prefer something a little more off-beat, try the absurdist rotating sketch comedy of "Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind," the longest-running show in the city.

January 2020 Chicago Rent Report

Welcome to the January 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 held steady over the past month

Chicago rents have remained flat over the past month, however, they are up slightly by 1.4% year-over-year. Currently, median rents in Chicago stand at $1,093 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,285 for a two-bedroom. Chicago's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 0.9%, but is in line with the national average of 1.4%.

    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, 9 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 $1,755; however, the city has also seen rents fall by 0.5% over the past year, the biggest drop in the metro.
    • Waukegan has seen the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 2.6%. The median two-bedroom there costs $1,014, while one-bedrooms go for $862.

    Chicago rents more affordable than many similar cities nationwide

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

    • Rents increased slightly in other cities across the state, with Illinois as a whole logging rent growth of 0.9% over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 1.0% in Rockford and 0.3% in Springfield.
    • Chicago's median two-bedroom rent of $1,285 is above the national average of $1,192. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.4% over the past year, which matches the rise in Chicago.
    • While Chicago's rents rose slightly over the past year, many cities nationwide also saw increases, including Columbus (+1.8%), DC (+1.6%), and New York (+1.3%).
    • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Chicago than most comparable cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,088, 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.
