"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!

Moving to Austin

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. You'll also want to be sure you're ready to put down a deposit to secure your dream house to rent should you find it!

Northern Austin: Northern Austin is the area on the train line. This makes it one of the most popular and the easiest to get around from. Expect real estate to be a pit pricier here because of the convenience factor.

South Austin: This area is mostly residential, with lots of single family homes. Its boundary is Interestate 290 to the south, so it's also a convenient place for transportation if you have a car. It's a pretty quiet place here, but it's also home to the Columbus Park Golf Course, which is nice.

Eastern Austin: This area, closest to Chicago, is actually the least rent-friendly. There are a lot of residential parts, but some of it feels industrial. If you're looking for lush greenery or rolling meadows, you'll want to look elsewhere.
