How much do you pay for rent? Is returning to office impacting where you move? I’m conflicted.

Returning to the office means I will find a remote job. I enjoy where I live and won't move back near the office.


2,400 in Logan, 2bdrm 2 bath, garage spot in unit laundry and a dishwasher. Ya girl needed all the amenities. (Split with my live in partner)


This is going to cause some issues for a lot of people who moved wherever these last two years. Lot of long suburban commutes ahead for many unless they find fully remote opportunities. One of the many reasons employees have been pushing back on RTO.


$2,200 for 1,200sq ft in Logan Square



1700 for a 2 bed + large office in Ravenswood, about a 35 minute commute to the loop. I don’t mind having a commute so for me the space in the apartment vs the distance to the office was more important.


My mortgage is $850 (2Br/2Ba). I haven’t moved and have no plans to.

Portage Park.

$1600 for a 1 bdrm in the Gold Coast

$2000 for 1bed1bath apartment in Oak Park. Cute suburb with super convenient CTA line.

$1100 for my half in Bucktown, 2 bed 2 bath

1500 1 bed in wicker

1700 2 br Avondale

$1,300 mortage in Logan Square, been here 14 years, cant afford to buy here now, so I am not going anywhere!

$1,350 lakeview west- 2 bed 1 bath
