Rent or Buy in Chicago or Chicagoland?
Discover Your Options
A 2018 article on Digg, reported the following regarding the cost of renting nationwide ... and in Chicago/the Chicagoland area:
"Renting an apartment might give you flexibility, but in most states in the US, renting is actually more expensive than owning a home."
Another article on RentCafe' reported the following statistics and info:
"The average rent for an apartment in Chicago is $1,893, a 5% increase compared to the previous year when the average rent was $1,795."
This jump in rental costs is proving worrisome, but motivational to many area Chicago/Chicagoland renters seeking payment relief. The calls I receive are increasingly from those in this scenario.
Many of those inquiring are finding that a monthly mortgage payment would be less costly than their current or future monthly rent. Plus buying a home with a monthly mortgage payment would make more financial sense for them moving forward.
So my questions are:
Are YOU presently renting? Are YOU facing the prospect of an increase in your monthly rent soon?
