"Chicago, Chicago / Free and easy town, brassy, breezy town / Chicago, Chicago / Let me cool my heels right down at Marshall Field / Come and walk with me along the lake / To the great holler and hoot, all through the loop / Shout how now to Mrs. O'Leary's cow / No she-she, life is peachy." - Rufus Wainright, "Chicago"

Austin, technically Chicago's biggest neighborhood, is an old and storied neighborhood with many sights in it, and even more houses. Primarily a residential area, it is an area of subdivisions and many single-family homes. Austin has grown quite a bit from the budding urban enclave it used to be. Today, Austin residents believe in their community and have a strong sense of community pride. There are also efforts to revitalize the neighborhood, so it's possible that new and exciting things are around the bend!

So, you want to rent an apartment in Austin? You're in luck. You'll probably be able to find some affordable 2 bedroom apartments or even bigger. Things here are affordable, since you make up for what you don't get in niceness in price. Rental property isn't the most plentiful in this area since it's a lot of single-family homes, but what you do find will probably be in your budget.

If you're planning to move to Austin, first gather your leasing documents. You'll want to have copies of your ID, bank statements, tax returns, proof of employment, proof of income, letters of reference from former landlords, and more.
