PREVIOUSLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Why do I have to pay an application fee? 3. December 2016

To apply for an apartment, you must pay a $50 to $75 application fee per person (some buildings only charge 1 fee for married couples). This fee normally covers the standard credit, eviction, and criminal background check.

How do I know if my income will qualify to rent an apartment? 3. December 2016

You must be able to prove an income of 3 times to 3.5 times the base rent expense. You can provide your last 2 paycheck stubs, an offer letter from your new employer as proof of income, or bank account/student loan statements showing sufficient funds.

(Example for income qualification: $2000 monthly rent x 3 = $6000 monthly gross income required)

In addition, we will know which properties are offering specials (No Application Fee, No Move-In Fee, 1 Month Free, etc.), which is then passed on to you directly.

I was talking to a friend that said pricing for rent changes every day. How can pricing change daily? 3. December 2016

Renting an apartment in the City of Chicago is similar to buying an airline ticket or reserving a hotel room.  The price of an apartment can literally change daily as most often an algorithm is used to determine pricing on a daily basis.  The algorithm software also takes into account items such as balcony, view, floor level, amenities, availability, etc.  The majority of the building management companies in downtown Chicago use this type of algorithm software to manage and maximize their pricing.  Therefore, the various properties know what each other would have as available for apartments, as well as their pricing.  As an example then, if a large number of 1 bedroom apartments rented over the weekend, the price on Monday for 1 bed apartments would increase.

How much do I have to pay for the security deposit? 29. September 2016
