Beal properties has been a Chicago based business for more than three decades. With thirty years of experience, Beal knows a thing or two about what renters are looking for when they want to live in Chicago. Anyone who has visited the city knows how diverse an area can become within a simple 5 minute commute time. City goers can go from high rises and museums to courtyard buildings with a more neighborhood feel via the train or a quick car ride. The type of building a renter wants will rely heavily on their lifestyle along with their needs. Property types in Chicago are as vast as the amount of dining and cultural experiences the city has to offer.
Beal currently has rental properties in Winnetka, Gold Coast, Wrigleyville, Northfield, Evanston, Highland Park, Ravenswood, Glencoe, Lincoln Park, Lincoln Square and Lakeview. The northern suburbs closer to NIU feature a neighborhood view situated in a suburban setting. It is a very quick ride into the city from this area. Wrigleyville has more of a hustle and bustle where residents can easily walk to bars, restaurants, unique boutiques and catch a cubs game. The property rental experts at Beal will set up an appointment to meet with potential renters and inquire about their needs before showing properties.
Beal does keep an updated list of rentals available on their website as well as an application process for preapproval on rentals. Many of the larger buildings in downtown Chicago will feature garbage services, elevators, door attendants, a lobby and some also have gyms, pools, parking and allow pets. Green space is typically not an option for downtown living but even neighborhoods such as Ravenswood and Lincoln Park do have courtyard style apartments with some green space to enjoy.
Cities continually experience population surges. Every few years the cycle will repeat itself. Residents may be young and working downtown. It makes sense to live where they work and limit commute time. This also cuts back on pollution as Chicago relies heavily on public transportation. As businesses open suburban locations or residents lifestyle needs change they may rotate outwards towards the suburbs and trade city life for a more family centered existence. As life changes these same previous city dwellers often find themselves filtering back to their cultural epicenter as their children become adults themselves. Chicago offers so many neighborhoods and each comes with unique cultural experiences.
Residents life needs may change but many people are drawn to the city lifestyle. Chicago is one of the largest Midwest cities and is located directly on the shores of lake Michigan. Those visiting for the first time are pleasantly surprised to see how many beautiful beaches line the shoreline and how magnificent the views are. There are plenty of activities for children and families to participate in such as Navy Pier, The Shedd Aquarium, The Museum of Science and Industry and The Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Second City is a favorite comedy hot spot for adults taking in the city’s comedic side. Beal property experts will happily assess each potential renters needs and help them find properties near their coveted activities and their respective places of employment.
