Rental deal of the day: East Lakeview 2/2 for $1,550

We’re kicking off a new feature: the rental deal of the day.

The info for our first few posts comes from the founders of Chicago Rentals Direct, a new work-in-progress website that aims to connect tenants directly with landlords. CRD was founded by Stephanie Konow and Katie Bommarito, both veterans of the rental service / finder industry. Beginning next week CRD will be sharing our office space and giving us up-to-date insight into the rental market.

The deal

View from 2909 N Sheridan Rd, ChicagoOn to the deal…a two-bedroom / two-bath unit on the 15th floor of 2909 N Sheridan Rd renting for $1,550 a month. CRD tells us that this is “an awesome price” for this very large unit, which has views of the lake from the living room and master bedroom. The rent includes heat and cable. No pets allowed.

The following was e-mailed to CRD by Philip, who listed the unit and will be showing it as the owner’s representative. He can be reached at 312-450-4121.

I do not own the condo but have been renting it from the owner for the past 2 and half years. I am moving out and the owner has requested that I help him find a new renter, since he will be out of town a lot over the next two months. I told him I would be happy to post the apartment on craigslist or other sites and show the apartment until we found a new renter.

I went through ‘Apartment People’ to find my new place (your website wasn’t live yet) and that was a hellish experience so I’m glad that your service [CRD] exists! Whoever does rent this apartment will be renting directly from the owner (as I did) but I wanted to make sure you knew that I was not a condo owner and am simply acting on his behalf as a favor.
