North lakefront renters have more MLS-listed choices

Toward the end of June there were 542 homes and condos listed for rent in the local Multiple Listing Service.

As of yesterday evening that number had risen to 689, a 27% increase in the last 3 months and the highest number we’ve seen in the nearly two years that we’ve been tracking rentals in ZIP Codes 60614, 60657, 60613, 60640, 60660 and 60626. The number of homes and condos listed for rent in these ZIP Codes, which span from Lincoln Park to Rogers Park, is nearly 40% above the year-ago level.

When the 269 units at Halsted Flats become available for occupancy early next year they should provide some tough competition for Lake View and Uptown condos, few of which offer comparable common-area or in-unit amenities.
