Cheap Apartments in Chicago

Although Chicago is known as the Second City, it is in fact currently the third most populous city in the United States, right behind New York and Los Angeles. Home to approx. 2.8 million residents, Chicago is the biggest city in Illinois.. The city is known for its sports teams, culture and cuisine, which includes its famous deep-dish pizza. Finding an affordable rental in Chicago is easier when you narrow your search based on apartment size, desired amenities and area of the city you wish to live in.

There are three major districts in Chicago: the North Side, the West Side and the South Side. Within those districts, there are a number of smaller neighborhoods and subdivisions. The West Side of Chicago is home to many of the more affordable rental options for apartments.

Where you choose to rent an apartment can depend on factors like what you are willing to pay and where you would like to live in order to be close to where you work. Areas where you may find affordable apartments for rent include Bronzeville, South Loop and Rogers Park.

What to Look for in Cheap Apartments

Cheap apartments in Chicago and elsewhere often have fewer amenities than more expensive rentals do. However in a city like Chicago, where the cost of living is often higher than the national average, there are obvious advantages to finding cheap apartments for rent. If amenities are important to you, you might have to compromise on the amount of square footage your apartment offers and perhaps consider renting a studio apartment.

Renting a studio may afford you the option of living closer to the city center. If your job is downtown, you might consider looking for an affordable apartment downtown.
