Scouting for an Apartment in Glendale Heights

Vacancy rates and rental costs vary widely between neighborhoods, but prices can climb substantially in prized neighborhoods. As always, you'll need excellent references, good credit and proof of employment to get the best deals.

Glendale Heights Neighborhoods

For the most part, all of the major areas of Glendale Heights are quiet and neighborly--don't expect any late night house parties to start popping up. Regardless, they all have their own distinct character:

Bloomingdale Road/East Altgeld Avenue: It'll be tough to find an apartment here; most homes are older, large houses that are owner-occupied. However, if you're a fan of the opera, museums and other fine arts, you'll fit right in with the local crowd.

North Avenue/Linden Lane: This area is a favorite of local college students, who can walk to class as necessary. Rent can be pricy, considering the average cost of a home in the area, but the overall convenience may be worth it.

North Glen Ellyn: North Glen Ellyn may be the most expensive neighborhood in Glendale Heights, but there's still a mix of older homes as well as one-bedroom apartments. If you're looking for an all bills paid apartment, this is a good place to look thanks to guest homes and garage apartment conversions.

Schmale Road/Wall Street: Approximately one-third of the people who call this neighborhood home identify as having Asian ancestry.

Swift: If you're looking for inexpensive rent in an ethnically diverse neighborhood, Swift is the perfect choice. A higher-than-average vacancy rate also means you'll have lots of apartment rentals and apartment complexes to consider.

Swift/Dickens Road: Are you a clumsy hiker? This neighborhood encompasses the Adventist Glen Oaks Hospital and the East Branch Forest Reserve, so you'll be covered without leaving the area.

Village Center: If you're looking for a walkable neighborhood, Village Center is your best bet. Small row houses and vintage one-bedroom apartments also give this neighborhood a lot of charm.

West Fullerton Avenue/Fullerton Avenue: You'll find plenty of older homes that were built before Glendale Heights was an independent town.

Living in Glendale Heights

Considering a move to Glendale Heights? Before you pack your bags, know the village quirks. Most people own cars and have an average workday commute of 30 minutes. Like to play sports? Glendale Heights has adult summer softball and winter basketball. There's soccer, swimming and football teams for kids, too. Better break out the Capri Sun and orange slices.

Still intrigued? Then make your move. Glendale Heights may be a village, but it has the diversity and community services of a much larger town.

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.


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.
