Despite February Dip, North Side Rent Still Top in Chicago

New, 38 comments

The latest rent survey from Zumper shows that while the perennially expensive Near North Side neighborhood still boasts the highest rental rates for a one-bedroom ($2,000 on average), surging prices in the Loop (3.2%) and West Town (3.4%) show those areas gaining, just as a new flood of units is coming to both areas. Nobody who has survived this frigid month would be shocked by the sight 2.9% drop in rent prices this month across Chicagoland as a whole, but Kenwood had a particularly rough month, posting a 4.1% drop. Upward quarterly trends for one-bedrooms in Logan Square and Avondale (15.4% and 10.9%, respectively) showed the desirability of these units in these fast-growing areas.
