It’s no secret that Americans, especially younger Americans, want to rent. With 50% of the adult US population, and almost 60% in urban areas, choosing to rent rather than buying a home, every rental agent should consider building rentals into their business plans. However, we know how difficult it can be to work with rentals, and how little rentals can be visible on your local MLS. Our founder and CEO, Ishay Grinberg, used his own experiences struggling and grinding to work with rentals as inspiration for Rental Beast, the MLS of the rental world. We now have over 7 million (and counting) off MLS-listings, all with no co-brokes attached! Every week, we give you a peak into our inventory. Last week we covered Philly. Today, we’re looking at what you can rent in Chicago for under $2000.
According to RentCafe, the average rental price for a rental Chicago as of July 2019 is $1990, a few hundred dollars over the national average. Check out what we have going for around average price.
