How much do you pay in rent? Currently living with my parents and would like to move to the city at some point, but the rent prices are scary.

Save and buy!


That’s what I did 😂


Nuts. Enjoy your youth. Get a place. Have some fun

Seriously?? Grow up and move out. You will love it


$1400 for a 2 bedroom in North Center.

Or $700 per person if I was the type to charge my wife rent.


1 bedroom in River North $2300


2500 1br river north


Wow, seeing these prices makes me want to stay at home for couple of years more.


if you actually save the money to buy a place or invest in stocks, you can accrue a pretty amazing amount by staying with the p's. no judgement or rush from me. big diff when a few years later city friends are still essentially living paycheck to paycheck on high salaries while you have 50k 100k etc in stocks.

1700 1 bedroom Gold Coast


$850 /person for a 3 bedroom in Lakeview


Where did you find this place? I would like to aim for something similar

Find some roommates to get a place with, way more doable with 1 or 2 others to split rent with. With a 3 bed you can live in most Chicago neighborhoods for <$1000.


1950 1 bed in south loop


$1400 1 bedroom in West Town

2400 1 bedroom Loop

$2500 1 bedroom River North

$700/person 3BR in River West

Where did you find this place? I’m shooting for something in that range

$1500 high rise 1 bed in old town triangle

What building?


$1075 in a 4 bed house in south lakeview.

1200/person 4BR Lakeview penthouse

$1025 in Riverwest, 3BR/2B garage included

OP - I think most of us were in your shoes probably not too long ago. It’s a great idea to save up a little cash before you move out, but you’ll love it in the city.
