View full City Guide

Evanston isn't just your average Chicago suburb. It's one of the largest and most well-known suburbs - and easily one of the most desirable. It's rich with history and culture and has some of the most gorgeous architecture that you can find in the Chicago area. It's a skip and a jump away from downtown Chicago - one of the reasons it's so appealing to so many renters. The city is made up of smaller neighborhoods that vary quite a bit when it comes to the vibe and apartment affordability. You can find one-bedroom apartments in homes rented directly by owners or in high-rise residential buildings through big management companies. Both have their perks, so it really depends on your personal taste. But whatever your choice, Evanston offers access to great employment opportunities and lots of entertainment options, whether it's taking in the museums and theaters of Chicago or checking out the action at some of the local pubs nearby.

Living in Evanston

When it comes to choosing a place to live in Evanston, you'll find that there are one-bedroom apartments scattered all over the suburb. Downtown is a highly commercial district and you'll be a stone's throw away from the best shopping, dining and nightlife fun that the city has to offer. It has mostly high-rise residential buildings and a lot of openings with some nice perks if you're willing to sign a one- or two-year lease. East Evanston runs along the lakefront and has fewer rentals as it's mostly composed of older, larger houses. If you can find rentals here, however, it's a beautiful area filled with parks and jogging paths - even though it's a little pricier.

One Bedroom Apartments in Evanston

About 40% of the population in Evanston are renters and that means you'll find a lot of available options. The vacancy rate here is almost 9%, so be prepared to start making a list of pros and cons for all the open units you fall in love with! One-bedroom apartments rent for an average of $1,090. This is a little higher than some of the neighboring suburbs, but you are also tapping into a great community and a beautiful environment with easy access to The Loop and downtown. It's also a heck of a lot cheaper than what you'll find living right smack in the center of Chicago - so you can enjoy your spacious one bedroom and still have leftover cash to take yourself out and enjoy the city!

One-bedrooms are a great size for living alone or with a significant other, depending on your situation. You can find spacious units that are comfortable to relax in and are also close to recreational activities, like the walking and biking trails that Evanston has plenty of. It's an awesome town to look for employment opportunities and to settle down in and plan to call home for awhile - most people who get here quickly find that they don't ever want to leave.

    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.
