Best of Both Worlds

No matter what 2-bedroom apartment you choose, you'll love living in Naperville. It's close enough to the bright lights of Chicago but far enough away to offer some peace and quiet. This suburb can't stop winning awards. Just look at this list:

  • In 2006, Money magazine named it as the second-best place to call home, and Naperville has landed in the top five on that list four other times.
  • In 2013, Kiplinger called it the best city for early retirement.
  • In 2010, it was recognized as the wealthiest community in the Midwest.
  • Business Insider and USAToday both named Naperville one of safest cities in the country.
  • Locals love Naperville because of its proximity to Chicago, nice range of places to live and its friendly, small-town vibe.

Naperville has a high percentage of owner-occupied households -- just over 75 percent, which compares to 67 percent for Illinois and 65 percent for the U.S. The apartment vacancy rate is 2.9 percent, so inventory is available but tight.

Average Rent for Two Bedroom Apartments

The average rent in Naperville and surrounding areas for a 2-bedroom is around $1450-$1550. Naperville has several upscale developments with even higher rents if you are looking for a premium lifestyle. Keep in mind that in Naperville you should budget at least $200 every month extra for gas, electric, water and cable bills. Included utility payments typically only cover sewer and trash.

2-bedroom apartments are in demand by young families because there is enough room to split up the sleeping arrangements, and there is more space in the living areas to watch TV, play games, talk and relax. When searching for your perfect apartment, keep your eyes peeled for a large kitchen. The kitchen is where the family inevitably ends up for eating, doing homework and conversing, so look for one with plenty of space.

Separations Provide Privacy

With small families sharing bedrooms, sometimes one child or another may desire more privacy. You can build a separation using a book case, screen or material that effectively divides one bedroom into smaller sections. Although not as private as a full bedroom, it's often enough for young kids to feel like they have their own space.

Even if you don't have children, 2-bedrooms are coveted by couples because the extra bedroom is often used as a home office. Home-based business owners, salespeople, web workers and others appreciate having enough room to set up a professional office.

Lots of Great Neighborhoods

So where can you find 2-bedroom apartments? Buttonwood is a nice neighborhood with good schools, big trees and friendly neighbors. Downtown Naperville is a hot area close to popular restaurants, nightspots and community events like Ribfest, so expect inventory to be tight. Riverwalk, a gorgeous area along the DuPage River, has some new developments that take advantage of the nearby parkland. Chanticleer Lakes is picturesque, and Harmony Grove/Tamarack has a good blend of old and new developments.

A 2-bedroom apartment in Naperville is a good choice. It's a cozy, comfortable and friendly town offering a vibrant downtown scene to keep things interesting.

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.
