Chicago’s scofflaw rental services / apartment locators / apartment finders would like you to believe that finding a high-rise apartment in Lakeview East is a daunting task. Far from it.
If you buy the rental service line, and work with one of them, you’re a complete sucker and you won’t be shown some of the best apartment deals in Lakeview East. You need to be aware that a number of area landlords refuse to work with any of the rental services. Rental services routinely lie about building and apartment features, rent prices, pet policies and more – and run illegal bait-and-switch ads for the properties that they can’t show you. Consult our list of the twenty-five things rental services won’t tell you.
A Craigslist search for a Lakeview East apartment is generally a waste of time – or worse, given the risks associated with Craigslist ads. Your Craigslist search will surface 1,000s of ads, many of them illegal, out-of-area, bait-and-switch, and almost all from apartment locator services. Trulia, Zillow and hotpads are also time-wasters, with multiple rental service ads.
