Neighborhood Guide
Finding an Apartment in South Chicago

Not only is it cheap to live here, but it's also a goldmine for finding housing for rent. With a vacancy rate of 8.5% and rentals accounting for 31% of properties, there's a good chance you can find what you're looking for here. Keep some of the following tips in mind as you're sifting through all the 1 bedroom apartments to find that perfect home. You'll have a much better chance of finding the right spot to call your own.

The Cost

You're in luck. Prices are pretty consistent throughout the whole of South Chicago, but they vary a bit depending on the type of property you're renting. In other words, you'll be paying more for a fancy hi-rise than you will for an older building that hasn't been renovated. If you're renting a newer unit, be sure to ask about how much the rent increases each year sometimes they can slap on a hefty rent hike after the first year, which can come as an unpleasant surprise.

When to Rent

The cold and snowy winters are generally the best time to rent because not many people choose to traipse around in the subzero temperatures, snow and slush to see all the places on their list. If you've got a pair of warm boots, this is the place to break them out. Spring and summer bring lovely weather and, of course, more renters. Finding an apartment here won't be too much of a challenge, considering the amount of open spaces, but you don't want to count on it until you've signed the papers! So be on your best behavior, check out lots of different places and be prepared to jump on the one you think is right for you, whether you're looking for a studio apartment for rent or 3 bedroom apartments.

What You Need

Just because there are lots of available apartments for rent here doesn't mean you should be lazy about your hunt. Treat it like a job interview you should be friendly and professional. Show up early to meet your landlord when you're viewing new places, and have all your paperwork ready to go. You'll need your credit report, rental application, letter of employment or recent pay stubs, references and, if you're bringing a pet, the necessary paperwork to prove it's healthy and well-behaved. The management might allow pets but have requirements as to size and breed, etc., so be sure to ask upfront so you're not faced with any surprises down the road. It's a good idea to bring your checkbook, to the apartment complex, too. Nothing shows how invested you are in renting an apartment like slapping a deposit on it.

South Chicago Neighborhoods

The famous 95thStreet Bridge that The Blues Brothers jumped over in a Dodge Monaco is no doubt one of the most iconic landmarks in South Chicago. The area was dominated by steel mills through most of the 1900s, most of which have closed. The bridge and the Calumet Fisheries seafood stand are still standing, however, and keep drawing folks into this portion of South Chicago.

Commercial Avenue: Most business and shopping happens along Commercial Avenue, as the name would suggest. Living here gives you access to plenty of great worldly cuisine and lots of happening nightlife.

Bessemer Park: This beautiful park is surrounded by sycamore tree-lined streets and residential properties that are about as costly as you'll find in the area. It's one of the largest parks on the south side and also boasts a natural preserve of fauna and wildlife.

Lakefront: This area was just purchased by world-class developers who are planning a gigantic redevelopment that will include residential, retail and lake recreation. This will more than likely change the whole climate of the city and bring a lot of new residents and businesses into the area.

E. 83rd Street: The Metra Electric Line has a South Chicago Branch Station right here, so it's super convenient if you're planning to spend a lot of time downtown. It's the only Metra line that terminates inside Chicago's city limits so, understandably, people pay a little more to live here.

Life in South Chicago

South Chicago is one of the main areas that the locals consider part of Chicago's Southeast Side because its streets stay true to the citywide grid. There are many areas of the city that haven't been built up yet, so expect some big commercial and residential developments to happen on this highly sought-after real estate. Great transportation and relatively low rents make this neighborhood a sweet destination spot for folks on the hunt for apartments to rent. South Chicago is a little like living in Chicago, except you're a little further south. It has a bustling urban feel and takes 10 or 15 minutes to get right to the heart of downtown. The Calumet River slices right through it, and Lake Michigan can be seen from the hi-rise apartment buildings.

  • The plan for redevelopment of the Lake Shore neighborhood means big changes are in store for South Chicago. You can expect it to look a little more like the famed Lake Shore Drive it just might take 10 years to get there.
  • Residential streets in South Chicago are lined with traditional brick bungalows dating back to the early 1900s to brand new 3-story homes decked out with all the modern amenities.
  • A lot of the properties in South Chicago are well-restored or well-maintained, but there are a fair amount of older buildings that need attention and repair. Make sure you're aware of what you're getting or are handy with a hammer and drill if you end up in a fixer-upper.
  • The area is known for its killer Mexican food that's about as authentic as anything you'll find on this side of the border. Of course, residents love to brag about the obligatory Chicago-style pizza places in town as well.
  • The CTA makes it easy to get around the neighborhood via the Metra Rail, which will also get you into downtown in just about 30 minutes. Some people prefer driving, which is easy, too. Just hop on the Chicago Skyway at one of the entries on either 87th Street or 92nd Street and zip into the city. Just be warned that rush hour traffic can be nasty running both ways, morning and evening.

All in all, South Chicago has a lot to offer residents, and at prices like these, it's not a bad idea to consider ditching that downtown penthouse for new digs, suburban style.
