Vacancies are available through all four seasons in Roselle. How much will you have to spend? The rent prices vary depending on what part of Roselle you decide to live in. The areas nearest to the airport, the country club or the freeway are the most pricey. Most of the apartment complexes are located within the center of the city, although there are quite a few complexes located near to neighboring towns such as Medina and Westlake.
When looking for an apartment in the area, you might want to take a car. Since many of the locations are spread apart, getting to them by bus or train can prove very timely. Bonus -- taking a car back and forth to the viewing allows you to get a sense of the surrounding area as well as the complex itself.
A few items you might want to bring along with you during an apartment viewing are your ID and social security card, and your bank statements or pay stubs. If you want to proceed with the application process, you will have to pay an application fee (which varies for each rental apt) and you'll have to put down a deposit if you are approved. Aside from this, you may need your most current lease or a letter from your landlord, a reference letter from your job, contact details for all of your references and tax papers if you're self-employed.
While there isn't really a specific time of year to look for a place, the vacancies do slim down during the winter and spring.
The only neighborhood that resides in Roselle, Illinois is Village Center. This area is quaint and highly residential -- code for relaxing.

Spend enough time indoors during the week? Listen up: there are multiple parks in Roseville, and many of them have lakes. The Medina Country Club, which is one of the most popular golf clubs in the area, is split down the center by Lake Khadijah. Neighboring this park is Lakeview Park, which also shares the same lake. Other parks in the area include Meacham Grove County Forest Preserve, Roselle Park District, Quality Farm Recreational area, Goose Lake Park and Dog Park. Many of these parks have biking trails, walking trails, and plenty of room for dogs run around.
The good thing about getting to these parks is that you don't need to drive, because the Pace Bus will take you near most of them or to a train that will get you the rest of the way. There are numerous waterways in this area, which consist of ponds, lakes, creeks and springs, so there are plenty of fishing and swimming activities in the area.
While we're on the subject of transportation, there are many train and bus lines that run through the area to take locals to a few of the popular destinations around town and out to Chicago. This area is also located near Schaumburg Airport near the Elgin O'Hare Expressway.
