City Guide
Westmont
Finding an Apartment in Westmont

One of the striking factors about Westmont is that owner-occupied homes account for only 58 percent of housing, a much lower rate than the average for Illinois and the nation. The median rental rate is higher than the average for Illinois, and the national median, by 15 percent. The rental vacancy level is only 3 percent, meaning the competition for good rental accommodation can be tough.

Have a Plan

Put together a plan to help you find that perfect apartment in Westmont. Make a list of the things you want in an apartment, with the most essential at the very top. This list will help you make quick decisions when you eventually find apartments you like. It will also help your realtor (if you are using one) narrow down the rental housing to suit your specifications.

What You Need

Apartment managers or landlords typically require a security deposit, and the first months rent. You will also likely need to provide proof of income, perhaps pay stubs or some other form of proof. You could provide a letter of reference from a former landlord or an employer to help you secure the rental housing. Most landlords will conduct a credit check to ensure that you have a good credit history.

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.
