APL51813417 - This classic one bedroom apartment has all the charm of a bygone era. The hardwood floors throughout give it an air of timelessness, and the exposed brick walls add to that feeling. There's lots of extra storage space and natural light, which makes it feel spacious and airy. The water pressure in the bathroom is great, and there are large closets for all your clothes! The building is situated on a quiet tree-lined street, which means you'll be able to walk to just about anything you need the EL, restaurants, shops. It's in a safe neighborhood with plenty of friendly neighbors! **DISCLAIMER: Photos may not represent the exact unit that is available but reflect similar units in the building* One of the most iconic Chicagoland suburbs, Oak Park has long been praised and envied for its many wonderful features. Displaced by the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, many farmers settled here and literally built their new community from the ground up. The most famous contributor of all, however, is Frank Lloyd Wright (FLW). Soon after moving to this small West Side village with his wife in 1889, he permanently transformed the area with his distinct architectural style. Thanks to him and other innovative artists, Oak Park boasts the largest collection of FLW designs worldwide and over 2,400 historic sites overall! Additionally, residents are in proximity of the Grand Illinois Trail and the Illinois Prairie Path where they can enjoy strolls, runs, and bike rides. Cultural aficionados will also feel right at home within the active arts community, or at one of several neighborhood libraries and theaters. Those who enjoy trying something new on a consistent basis will never get bored with the quirky local shops or welcoming cafes and restaurants. Commuting to work? Hop on the Green or Blue CTA Lines, or take a bus into Chicago. The Oak Park Metra stop is also nearby, as is the Eisenhower Expressway for longer trips. **DISCLAIMER: Photos may not represent the exact unit that is available but reflect similar units in the building*

What to keep in mind when looking for cheap apartments in Oak Park, IL

Finding cheap apartments in Oak Park takes some ingenuity and effort, as well as quick action. Before you head out on your search, bring along pay stubs, bank statements, letters of recommendations from landlords or employers, and identification. The more proactive you are about your search, the easier it will be to score a deal.

Look for cheap apartments in Oak Park by regularly scouring listings and looking during slower renting seasons, like winter. You can still find a deal if you move during the summer months when apartment hunting is more competitive.

You may be able to find cheap apartments in Oak Park in neighborhoods that are located away from attractions, restaurants, and entertainment. You may need to look farther out than you would prefer, but access to highways or public transportation can get you into the heart of Oak Park.

The building you choose can also make a difference in finding a cheap apartment in Oak Park. Older buildings that need some updating are more likely to have better deals. Walk-up apartments without elevators, on-street parking and few amenities like on-site fitness centers can also signal affordable rents in Oak Park.
