I live in Chicago now and rent for a decent 1 bed is about $1000.
I found one below market rate including utilities with new appliances and a good landlord. I honestly only think its the power of prayer cuz sheeeeeeeeesh....
That is correct because I remember a while back this girl who was new to the city was looking for a place to rent for 500 a month and she wanted to be by herself and the apartment had to be in a safe neighborhood. She posted this on a LinkedIn board. I had a good laugh for about 30 minutes.
she was trippin. You aren't paying under 700 WITH roommates. At least not with decent access to the loop.
When I got here I wanted to stay under $800. Let me tell you some of the literal HELL HOLES I saw for $750ish. I really was like, how dare people SHOW that to someone? Filthy bathtubs, pieces of the drywall missing, doors with holes busted in them, missing paint, dusty, sticky stuff, stained toilets, accordion doors off of the track. Apparently they do it cuz people on a tight budget or with bad credit will take what they can get.
I was lookin like
lemme quit being stingy.
One realtor said that when he starts working with new landlords as clients he asks them to raise the rent, because raising it by even 100/month means less riff-raff apply. When the landlord said that they didn't want tenants leaving, he assured them that they will get better ones in their place.
Y'all still tryna hurry up and move out of ya folks apartment?
