How Affordable Is Renting in Chicago?

“Chicago ranks well below other major US and global cities when it comes to rent affordability.” So says two recent reports, one by AppFolio, based in the US, and Nested, a real estate brokerage in Great Britain.

As stated in the Chicago magazine Curbed, Nested “estimates the average cost of rent for a single person in Chicago to be around $1,047 when considering that the price for apartment to be about $2.50 per square foot. The group estimates that the monthly rent for Chicago families is somewhere around $1,986, meaning that families need to earn just over $82,000 to pay rent.”

However, for families and individuals priced out of the home buying market, renters in single-family homes in Chicagoland could find that the monthly rent could be substantially less.
