City GuideSt. Charles

Sure, the lazy dog may be man's best friend. But some people recognize the true skill of that quick brown fox. St. Charles residents are some of those people, having made the city slogan "Pride of the Fox".

A river runs through the exact center of St. Charles, a city which is repeatedly referred to as a "suburb" of Chicago. With 40 miles between you and the Second City, the term is a bit of a stretch. St. Charles is currently sitting on its municipal laurels after being named one of the "150 Great Place in Illinois." Meanwhile, downtown proper has the 19th century charm of a postcard and a picturesque riverfront that looks like the cover of a nautical Sports Illustrated.

Finding an Apartment

If you don't mind a slight case of wind chill in the winter, then a riverfront property is a great bet.

Neighborhoods

As with everywhere else in the world, finding a clean, well-run and affordable apartment is going to be the most important aspect of your decision.

Living

You may be used to the Red Line if you're coming from Chicago, but don't count on reliable, or even robust, public transit in St. Charles. If you live downtown, walking, running or biking are fine options to get around, but a car is essential for trips further away than your local coffee shop.

The river is a focal point both for community activities and festivals. The annual Riverfest kicks off the summer with a fox hunt (not the furry kind - the clue kind), Dragon Boat races and a carnival. When the river isn't occupied by giant wooden dragons or sailboats, locals like to stake out a place on the banks for some fishing.

If you're in need of some permanent rest and relaxation or if you're ready to leave the city and its denizens behind, then check out St. Charles. It's a pretty foxy place to be.

    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.

    Methodology:

    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.
