Apartment Boom, Condo Bust

New, 1 comment

Demand for downtown rental apartments is higher than ever in Chicago. That's good news for landlords, as occupancy and rents continue to climb in the downtown market. Rents climbed 7.2% last year, and Appraisal Research Counselors expects them to climb another 7% to 8% this year. And in the near future, the largest contributor to the apartment supply will likely be failed condo developments, as there are 7 new condo buildings with more than 150 unsold units.
