City GuideElgin
Greetings, present and future residents of Elgin! Situated about 40 miles northwest of downtown Chicago on the banks of the Fox River, Elgin is a popular residential destination for leasers who covet Chicagoland lodgings without having to pay typical Chicagoland prices. Sound like a good fit for you? Then journey on, bold apartment hunter, because the dwellings of your dreams may be just a few clicks anyway.

First, though, let’s take a moment to answer the questions we know you must have about life in Elgin …

What’s so special about Elgin, anyway?

There’s a reason Elgin is one of Illinois’ fastest growing communities: The city boasts a mixture of ornate Victorian homes, newly-constructed estates, and rental units of all varieties for remarkably affordable prices. 1-BR rentals usually go for between $700 and $900, while lucky leasers can often find spacious luxury units for under a grand.

Is it easy to find an apartment there?

Yep. Waiting lists are nearly unheard of in Elgin, and plenty of complexes have vacant units year-round. Whether you’re in the market for a basic studio unit, a lavish condominium, an ultramodern downtown loft, or any other type of crash pad, you’ll find a variety of options in Elgin. Just arm yourself with proof of income, banking statements, and a list of previous addresses, and you’ll be living it up in Elgin!

How about entertainment? Am I going to be bored in Elgin?

The city is dotted with parks, equestrian paths, biking and hiking trails, as well as a petting zoo, symphony orchestra, and sports complex. The downtown area serves up a handful of chic lounges, pubs, and club. The Grand Victoria Casino downtown features live bands, karaoke, national comedy acts, and a variety of dining options.

Where are the best places to rent in Elgin?

Downtown Elgin has undergone a renaissance in the past couple decades and now boasts an assortment of chic lofts and spacious condos, most of which are available for under a grand. The various rental properties in South and West Elgin has a more suburban vibe. Featuring tons of newly-constructed homes and apartments replete with all kinds of bells and whistles.

What’s my best option for bumming around town?

The Metra rail service, which runs daily routes between the Elgin and Chicago. The PACE city bus, meanwhile, is a viable option for bumming around Elgin alone, but your best bet for navigating the streets of Chicagoland is via your own set of wheels. Elgin’s attractions, businesses, shopping centers, banks, and restaurants are so spread out that the only way to work and play conveniently is with your own vehicle.

Any other tips for renting in Elgin?

Just be sure to read your lease carefully and give your new pad a solid inspection before settling in. Make sure your appliances function properly, your pipes and sinks don’t leak, your toilets flush, and your walls, floors, and ceilings are blemish-free. Keep in mind that it’s always easier to get management to fix things up before you’ve moved in than after, so ensure that your new place is in tip-top shape from day one.

And now, we’re happy to say, you’re ready to begin your bold apartment hunting adventures! So welcome to Elgin, and happy hunting!

    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.
