 Rent or Buy in Chicago or Chicagoland?
Discover Your Options 


     It's no secret.  The cost of renting has risen all across the U.S. ... 
http://www.genemundt.com 
     An article in the New York Times, reported the following regarding the cost of renting nationwide ... and in Chicago/the Chicagoland area:

     "For rent and utilities to be considered affordable, they are supposed to take up no more than 30 percent of a household’s income. But that goal is increasingly unattainable for middle-income families as a tightening market pushes up rents ever faster, outrunning modest rises in pay.

     In Chicago, rent as a percentage of income has risen to 31 percent, from a historical average of 21 percent." 

     Another article on RentJungle.com reported the following statistics and info:

     "The average apartment rent over the prior 6 months in Chicago has increased by $231.5 (14%)

     One bedroom units have increased by $147 (10%) and two bedroom apartments have increased by $307 (17%)"


     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?  

     If so, here's some facts and actions to consider:
