The smart way to search for South Loop apartments

A search for South Loop apartments on Craigslist will return over 700 new ads each day, almost all of them from Chicago rental services. Many of the ads will be for properties not located in the South Loop. Almost all of the ads for actual South Loop properties will be for one of the 12 apartment buildings in the neighborhood. Only a very few of those ads will contain accurate information about availability and price. Searches at Trulia, Zillow and other websites will yield similar results, i.e. no useful results.

We think that’s a senseless way to search for a South Loop apartment. The smartest way is to go directly to the buildings.

Start with our periodically-updated list of what’s actually available to rent in South Loop apartment buildings.

The list has links to our objective apartment reviews, and the reviews link to the building websites. The list also has links to near real-time price and availability checks at the buildings, and video tours of a number of the buildings. We’ve also spotlighted the best buildings in the South Loop on eighteen different criteria.

You can search MLS-listed condos and townhomes for rent in the South Loop at reputable broker sites. The Koenig Rubloff site displays results in a list view and a map view. Click Search Homes on the menu and select Rental Search. Skip any listing that doesn’t include an exact address.
