The Cost

The real estate in River Grove is pretty reasonable compared to neighboring Chicago, although it is still slightly above the national average. The median home prices are still well under $200K, so if you're looking for something super affordable, you'll probably find something within your price range. If you're looking for apartments or townhouses for rent in River Grove, you're in luck in that department as well. The median rent is only $823 per month, which puts it WELL below the average rates in larger cities like Chicago.

Keep in mind that prices will vary depending on the size and how fancy you want the place to be. Obviously, one bedroom apartments in River Grove will be a bit cheaper than a large rental house. You get what you pay for, after all.

What Will it Take?

Snagging rental houses in River Grove is pretty similar to doing so in any other city. First, you'll need to have some cash on hand. For most apartments, townhomes, and rental houses, you're looking at a security deposit and first and last month's rent at the very least. Each apartment complex may have slightly different requirements, and it's possible you'll find a kindly landlord who will work with you, but you're still going to need to have some dough up front.

If you're looking to buy a home, the requirements will be even more stiff. Unless you have tons of money in the bank or a rich relative who owes you a favor, you'll probably need a loan from a bank or credit union in order to secure a mortgage. You'll need a good credit score, a good income, and a good bit of money in order to make a down payment. If you don't have one or all of these things, you might be better off finding an apartment or condo for rent in River Grove, since it's much easier to get approved for those.

Life in River Grove

So, you were able to rent an apartment in River Grove. Good job. Now you need to know what you'll have to do to stay entertained on the weekends. If you're not too hip on the small town vibes this community has to offer, you'll probably spend most of your time in the city. You'll be just a drive away from Chicago, so you'll have access to all of the nightlife, culture, world class dining, and entertainment they enjoy in the Windy City.

If living the small town "Mayberry" lifestyle is your cup of tea, then you're still in luck. River Grove has an authentic small town feel, mostly because it is a small town. You'll find all the restaurants and shopping you need, including both mom and pop retailers and national chains, as well as local activities the family can enjoy. The recreation center, for instance, hosts everything from family movies to teen dance nights.

You can even take part in nightlife activities without traveling into the city. Club Amore, for instance, offers food, drinks, and music for night owls right in town. Or, families can enjoy sunny days at Oak and Elmwood parks for some outdoor activities and fun.

You won't have trouble getting around in River Grove. Unlike some small towns that aren't next to one of the nation's biggest cities, this little community offers convenient public transit systems to get you around town as well as into neighboring Chicago and other local communities. So, you get all the perks of big city living with the quietness and relaxation you want from a small town.
