Seasonal impact of rent in Chicago

  • August is the most expensive month to rent in Chicago.
  • Rental prices are below neutral from December through May.

When faced with the decision to rent a new place, city dwellers have to make the choice of which season makes most sense for them. While piling personal items into a U-Haul during a January snowstorm doesn’t sound like the most stress-free experience, sometimes it means paying significantly less each month.
