When is the Best Time to Rent?
Shopping for an apartment in Chicago is extremely seasonal. Although you can still find great options during the Fall/Winter, the warm seasons bring the biggest selection of inventory. Typically, the rental season picks up around March and tails off around September.
Being the first person to see an apartment can be the difference between locking down the perfect apartment and losing the place of your dreams.

What to Look for in an Apartment.
There are many things to look for when shopping for an apartment. First, make sure your criteria is realistic. It will be quite difficult to find a Lincoln Park three bedroom with in-unit laundry, parking, and 12 x 12 bedrooms for under $1,000/mo. Although this may be an extreme example, picking the right criteria can make or break your search.
Whether checking the water pressure, how the neighborhood feels at night, or what sort of move-in fee the owner charges, you need to make sure the apartment is up to your standards. It is very difficult to get out of a lease due to buyer's remorse.
