Great Lincoln Park apartments are off-limits to rental services

Working with a rental service guarantees that you’ll miss out on some of the best located, most fairly priced and most nicely renovated apartments in Lincoln Park.

A number of Lincoln Park’s largest landlords don’t cooperate with rental services, and rental services will steer renters away from their properties.

Some of Lincoln Park’s large landlords only cooperate with rental services on their harder-to-rent apartments, reserving their best apartments for renters who aren’t working with a rental service.

Some of Lincoln Park’s smaller landlords will charge you a higher rent when you work with a rental services to recoup the month’s rent they’re paying the service. So much for that “free” service you were gulled into using.

There’s a single word that perfectly describes renters who work with a rental service before contacting Lincoln Park’s major property managers directly: suckers.

YoChicago advertisers own and manage 1,000s of apartments in prime Lincoln Park locations in buildings that range from 3-flats to high-rises. Give them a call rather than contacting a rental service. You’ll save time, avoid hassles, and you may save some money.

    I agree that many rental locators will not be your best bet, especially in neighborhoods such as Lincoln Park, but I think its a stretch to consider the apartments many of the companies you have listed as “great.” I would go as far to say 3/5 companies/building above are just as questionable as many rental locator agencies when it comes to the landlord side of the game.

    If you are considering a building (anywhere in the city), I suggest you research the building/company. I am not a fan of yelp, but its a decent place to start looking at reviews of larger buildings (just ignore the people blowing off steam and focus on the people who put together solid reasons why they like or dislike a building). Also, go to the building and ask a resident what they think, you’ll get some very insightful and candid answers, plus they can give you a realistic expectation of things like utility costs, internet speeds, etc.
