Overview of Chicago
While most residential property rentals are managed by a business that oversees numerous locations, some are rentals by owner. Rentals by owner are managed by a single individual (although the owner might employ workers to maintain the property). The owner might rent the property to earn extra income, or only rent the property to others when he or she plans to be away from the city for several months. There are several types of rentals by owner in Chicago, so you will want to explore your options to find one that fits your needs.
Chicago Townhouse Rentals by Owner
Many affluent families in Chicago live in townhouses. A townhouse makes it possible for a family to live in a large home without taking up a lot of ground space in the city. If you have enough money for a townhouse rental, then you could choose to live in some of the best parts of Chicago, including Lincoln Park, the Gold Coast, and Grant Park.
