Naperville Life

Naperville has a lot to offer in the way of entertainment, whether your pleasure is outdoor fun, nightlife or cultural connections. The Riverwalk is an awesome two-mile stretch of sculptures and art along the lovely DuPage River, and you'll find it filled with happy residents all day. There are also a couple of inline-skating and skateboarding parks in the city that welcome skaters and bystanders. If you're up for a night out, hit up the downtown area for some fantastic clubs, bars and neighborhood pubs that are situated to make for the perfect night of venue-hopping.

Studio Apartment Advice

Naperville has a lot of homes for sale by buyers, but it has a great selection of apartments for rent, too. Property taxes are getting close to 2.5 percent so a lot of folks are opting for the rental route to avoid the extra cost. Renters make up about 23 percent of the population of Naperville. The area also has an impressive 5.2 percent vacancy rate, so you'll have a decent selection to choose from. Average rent for a studio is around $993 - much less than you'll be paying in downtown Chicago or any of the Windy City's more central neighborhoods.

Studios are a great choice for singles and young professionals who are new to the area and looking for an affordable way to settle down here. You don't need a lot of space when you're living alone, and you can use the money that you're saving to try out the awesome dining and nightlife options in your new 'hood! Studios don't require a lot of furniture, either, so you won't have to spend a lot of money outfitting your new home. A lot of studios have room for a small dining table or seating area, so you can have a friend or two over when you like and you can take advantage of the small kitchens for cooking intimate meals! There are also plenty of great spots to order takeout in the area, which means you won't have to become a master chef if that's not your thing.

Where to Look

Studios can be found all over the city but you'll probably have the best luck looking for a spot near the Metra train - especially if you're commuting into Chicago for work. It gets you to the downtown Loop in half an hour, which is hard to beat. There are some great options close to the Riverwalk, Knoch Knolls Park and Centennial Park where you can score an awesome view if you're lucky. Naperville is one of the best places to escape the high intensity of downtown Chicago while still being able to enjoy the delights of the city from a short distance away.

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.
