City GuideJoliet
Forty miles southwest of Chicago lies the well-known and oft mispronounced city of Joliet. If it helps, the city was initially named for the founder’s daughter, Juliet, whose name is suspiciously close to that of Louis Jolliet, the explorer who initially surveyed the area. Whether the founder had a thing for local history or it’s all a big coincidence will forever be shrouded in mystery, but one thing’s for sure: Joliet is the City of Champions. That sounds like good news for you if you’re pl...
Joliet Living

Joliet has long been considered a transportation hub in Illinois. It straddles the Des Plaines River, which flows southward from Wisconsin to the western border of Chicago, and eventually becomes a tributary of the Mississippi River. You can see how this would be historically advantageous. On the whole, much of Joliet is still priced to move, which can be a plus to those who don’t have a lot to spend on rent money.

Style and Price

With a high amount of renters, you’ve got a lot of options as far as both price and style go. Stand-alone rental houses dominate the market. These can be very spacious and historic, or new-construction and modern (the latter more toward the center of the city where new growth is). Town homes and smaller 2-and 3-flat apartment buildings that are house-like run a close second in popularity. There are certainly larger apartment complexes in many areas, though they aren’t as abundant. Rent ranges from the $600s up to the mid-$1000s depending on where you’re looking, and that’s for all types of housing.

Utilities and Amenities

The amount you can expect to pay for utilities depends entirely on what type of place you’re renting. With houses and townhouses, it’s rare to get a place with any utilities included, and you’re likely to have a yard, garage, or more space. In apartments you’re more likely to find a place with many or all utilities included, as well as amenities and laundry room facilities (especially in larger complexes).

Fees and Extras

Finding a pet friendly apartment is not difficult in Joliet. Many rentals accept pets with a small deposit. Another potential fee to work into your budget is for an application and credit check, which many places ask for, and is non-refundable. In some areas of Joliet, this isn’t always customary, and getting approved for a rental is quicker and cheaper.

Where and How to look

Really, your best bet for finding a place in Joliet is this site and other online rental resources, second only to a walk through your desired neighborhood to write down numbers.

Drawn and Quartered

Joliet doesn’t have any officially recognized neighborhoods, like many places, but it does have some main divisions that are used by citizens and apartment hunters, alike. The Des Plaines River provides a natural East-West split to the city.

Downtown: Downtown is seeing re-growth and local revitalization. It’s certainly the biggest area for visitors, with two casinos, a baseball stadium, and the historic Rialto Square Theatre, among other things. This is the main area of the city, with the most ease of movement for public transit commuters (Joliet Union Station and buses are located here). Quite a few apartments are new construction and will be more modern.

West Side: The area west of the river has seen a significant amount of growth recently. As people migrated, they pushed a lot of shopping from the downtown area and expanded the city further west. On the west side, you’re more likely to find strip malls and shopping centers. This part of Joliet has bigger houses that are a little more expensive, but still affordable.

Far West Side: Further west of the west side, rentals are scarcer. This is a more rural area, especially due west and south, where houses and properties are larger.

East Side: Variety is what you’ll find on the east side. Clusters of tree-lined streets and cheap little bungalows are sprinkled about. Rents are lower on the East Side. Smaller apartment buildings and complexes are more plentiful here, while further out of the city gets greener and woodsier. Since the east side isn’t as expansive as the west, things go from urban to suburban to rural a lot quicker than you’d expect.

A Well-Connected City

Joliet is considered one of the fastest growing cities in Illinois, and the fourth largest by population. It’s a hop, a skip, and a jump away (read: about an hour and a half) from Chicago via both Amtrak train and two Metra commuter rail lines, making an easy dash to the big city for work or a shopping spree. That is, when you’re not busy with all Joliet has to offer. Multiple PACE buses run through downtown six days a week for local transportation.

There you have it, your guide to Joliet living. So, where do you go from here? Simple: Find some housing! 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.

    Overview of Findings

    Apartment List has released Joliet's results from the first annual Apartment List Renter Satisfaction Survey. The survey, which drew on responses from over 18,000 renters, provides new insights into what states and cities must do to meet the needs of the 105 million American renters nationwide.

    "Joliet renters report being very unsatisfied across several categories and express an extremely low level of overall satisfaction with their city," says Andrew Tam, Vice President of Data Science at Apartment List. "The US renter population is at its highest level in 20 years, and general dissatisfaction paired with low school satisfaction and a low safety ranking makes Joliet less desirable to this important demographic."

    Key findings in Joliet include the following:

    • Joliet renters give their city an F overall, ranking 91st out of 100 cities in our study.
    • Despite the general dissatisfaction with the area, Joliet earned an A for the local economy, with 41% of renters saying that it's on the right track.
    • A large percentage of Joliet renters plan to purchase homes, with 76% saying they expect to do so. That earned the city an A+ in the category.
    • Joliet's 3rd highest grade is a C+ for recreational activities, with 65% of respondents expressing satisfaction with access to parks, community activities, and nightlife.
    • The lowest grade for Joliet is an F for safety and crime rate, with just 18% of renters expressing satisfaction versus the national average of 53%.
    • Three Illinois cities were ranked in the study, with Chicago earning a B+, Evanston following with a B-, and Joliet earning an F.
    • The top rated cities nationwide for city satisfaction were Plano, TX; Boston, MA; Arlington, VA; Austin, TX; and Torrance, CA. The lowest rated cities were Newark, NJ; New Haven, CT; Bridgeport, CT; Hartford, CT; and Columbia, SC.

    A detailed report explaining the survey's methodology, analysis, and findings is available upon request. To obtain a copy, please email Andrew Tam, Apartment List's Vice President of Data Science, at andrew@apartmentlist.com.
