Finding a Duplex for Rent in Chicago
Chicago is a major U.S. city that is regarded as one of the top ten Global Financial Centers in the world. Known as the Second City, Chicago is famous for its skyline, its sports teams, its deep-dish pizza and its close proximity to Lake Michigan. Chicago's famous professional sports teams include the NBA's Chicago Bulls, the NFL's Chicago Bears and two MLB teams, in the White Sox and the Cubs. Chicago is also home to the Chicago Blackhawks hockey team and Major League Soccer's Chicago Fire.
With its many distinct neighborhoods, restaurants, museums, parks and attractions, Chicago is a diverse metropolis that offers something for everyone. Online listings provide detailed information about duplexes available to rent throughout Chicago.
Before you start searching for a duplex for rent, it's important to determine which neighborhood you want to live in. Spacious, semi-detached duplexes are generally part of two unit structures and share an adjoining wall with neighbors. Because of their size, duplexes are typically located further from the city center than downtown apartments and condos.
Things to Look for in a Duplex for Rent
One of the key differences between living in a duplex and apartment living is that duplexes typically come with both front and back yards. Renting a duplex is also sometimes cheaper than renting an apartment. In a city like Chicago, with an above average cost of living, saving a few bucks on rent is greatly beneficial. Typical duplex units contain several bedrooms, a living room, kitchen and more than one bathroom.
