To demonstrate how much square footage on a standard budget differentiates across the U.S., Rent Café used Yardi Matrix data to illustrate just how much space $1,500 allows in an apartment or home rental. According to the report, Chicago’s average rent is $1,708, while the average size is 730 square foot. For $1,500 per month, however, Chicagoans can get a 641 square foot unit at $2.34 per square foot.

CoreLogic’s Home Price Index increased 0.6 percent month-over-month in June and 3.1 percent annually in Illinois. Gains are expected to continue in the state at a steady pace of 0.5 percent monthly, the data firm says, with annual growth expected to hit 4.5 percent by June 2017.
