Renting an Apartment in Elgin, IL

One-bedroom apartments can be found throughout the city. There are a number of unique apartment buildings in the historic downtown area as well as units in landscaped communities in the outlying areas.

Most leases are for one-year terms, although you can sometimes find leases for six months.

One-bedroom apartments are a good choice for renters who want a little more room than offered by a studio apartment, but who don't have the budget or time necessary to maintain a larger suite. This could include newlywed couples, young professionals commuting to jobs in Chicago and retired couples.

One-bedroom apartments come in a variety of configurations. Some have one big living/dining/kitchen area; others are divided into smaller living spaces. Some of the downtown buildings offer floor-to-ceiling windows, exposed brick walls and decorative moldings.

    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.
