Looking for home rental or apartment in Chicagoland area.

I'm moving back to chicago because my kid tested into the gifted program with CPS. I was done with chicago winters but I don't want to pass up an educational opportunity for my children. I'm a single mom with two children. My price range is $1000 - $1100 monthly.

  • PeacockFeathers Douglas Diva

    I will be emailing you soon, Kim.

  • GRD GRD

    I'm an agent also however, I find the amount of rentals on the MLS sparse. I recommend you check out www.padmapper.com for rentals. You can search many different ways and it has good content.

    As a landlord when I have vacancies I put them on Padmapper and the MLS and get more leads from Padmapper. The MLS is a great tool for buying/selling but many people don't want to pay an agent to rent their place out.
