City Guide
Crestwood
Moving to Crestwood

Looking for the perfect abode can be tedious, especially if you don't know where to start. Fret not. The essential information in this guide will cause you to make smart choices. Let's get started.

Apartment Complex, Condo, or Family Home?

Well-established apartment complex, family houses, and condos for rent are the residential options that await you here. So don't go looking for bright and shiny townhomes or Victorian houses that looked straight out from the pages of history books or you'll be terribly disappointed. Most of the rental properties in Crestwood are mid-sized 2- to 3-bedroom cribs; although small apartments are available if you look hard enough.

First, the Good News‰Û_

The rental rate in this side of Chicagoland is something to be happy about. If you come from nearby communities like, say, Palos Heights, you'd think rent in Crestwood is loose change. Typically, you'd be required to pay for a month's rent in advance as well as a security deposit for a standard lease. Professionally managed properties would also require you to pay a pet's deposit and credit check fee on top of that.

Now, the Bad News‰Û_

Are you a patient person? The bad news won't be so bad if you are, since you're going to need lots of patience to find a good place here. Don't kick yourself if you're weeks into the search and have nothing to show for it. This is just not a renters' tribe what with owner-occupied homes forming a large chunk of the real estate landscape here. That said, don't throw in the towel that easily; give yourself at least two months to snag a suitable dwelling in Crestwood. And yeah, bring your picture ID, reference from previous landlords, and proof of income with you at all times coz you never know when lady luck will finally wave her magic wand and give you the home that you've been looking for.

Crestwood Neighborhoods

Now, onto the different neighborhoods‰Û_ Just cuz this isn't a renter's paradise doesn't mean you can't be fickle about your address. Get to know the 'hoods and know that it's still your privilege as a renter to choose an area that suits your lifestyle best.

Village Center: If Crestwood is one big party, this neighborhood is the life of the party. If you're a social butterfly you'd feel at home in this area, which is mostly made up of apartment complexes and typical family homes. This is the most walkable area of the village so you could sneak in a fitness regimen while running some errands. In addition, this is home to Rivercrest Shopping Center, Incarnation Elementary School, Alan B. Shepard High School, and Cook County Forest Preserve.

Cicero Avenue: Looking for excellent single detached homes or a condo for rent that's a bit removed from the ruckus of the city but still close enough for convenience's sake? Start your search here. This neighborhood is also home to Standard Bank Stadium, Kolmar Elementary School, and Caesar Park.

Brighton Court: This neighborhood is a prime example of nature and civilization learning to get along well with each other. This urban neighborhood is home to the Turtlehead Lake Forest Preserve, Rubio Woods, and Walker Park. Like to have your nest here? Places to live in this area are mostly apartment complexes and family houses.

Living in Crestwood

If you're a sports enthusiast, don't worry‰Û_ you'll have a team to root for in this village. Head over to Standard Bank Stadium, watch the Windy City Thunderbolts in action, and you'll easily have the much needed sports rush. In addition, Crestwood is also big on youth athletics and has several programs to encourage young people to engage in sporting activities.

If you love the smell, feel, and look of the outdoors, you have a lot to explore in Crestwood. To start, get your gears ready and go biking or hiking at Rubio Woods, or go fishing at Turtlehead Lake. And if you always have energy to burn, you can make the 30 minute drive and join the madness at Chi-Town.

So what are you waiting for? Get your digs here and have a blast while doing it.
