City GuideLake in the Hills
Get your outdoor fix in Lake in the Hills, Illinois: Home to thirteen parks and recreational areas, and site of the "Summer Sunset Fest" held Labor Day weekend.

Located less than 50 miles from Chicago and a suburb of that city, Lake in the Hills’ residential growth rocketed during the 1990s, going from 12,000 to 30,000 very quickly. The typical weather is hot, wet summers and cold, wet winters. Cost of living is approximately 11 percent above the national average, and renters can expect to pay more for apartments for rent than in other towns, but combo of proximity to The Windy City and surrounding idyllic beauty more than compensates for the price hike.

Find an Apartment in Lake in the Hills

Lake in the Hills, IL has a very low vacancy rate – in some areas it's just a little over 1 percent, so start searching for rentals well in advance of when your move is scheduled.

Before heading out on your house hunt, make a folder with everything you need to rent an apartment and take it along with you. The kit should contain your credit history, employment and salary history, rental references, and anything else you think you might need (if you have pets, shot records are important). Make sure that you have your checkbook or credit card with you so that you can lock up that rental contract on the spot before somebody else does.
