Moving to Park Forest

There are a few important things to prepare before you make your move that will smooth the path a bit. You can always go online to take a peek and do some homework about the city, but we recommend that you enlist the help of a local broker or real estate agent for your search. A local broker knows exactly what is available and might even be able to point you towards some sweetheart deals you would have never found on your own. Next, make a list of your must-haves! How much space do you need? Do you need washer/dryer hookups or does a deep walk in closet seal the deal for you? Also, don't forget to bring your references, credit check and enough money for all fees and deposits. Those are vital!

When moving, it is both important and proactive to gain a bit of insight about various neighborhoods before deciding if it will be a good fit for you and your lifestyle. The neighborhoods of Park Forest are described below to help you get a feel for the differences that make them each unique!

Lincoln Hwy/Indian St: This urban neighborhood is perfect for anyone who appreciates the architecture and charm of homes built between 1940 and 1969.

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.
