The Average Rent in Chicago for 2 Bedroom Apartments

Looking for 2 bedroom apartments in Chicago? Opting for the extra space can make sense for renters who have particular needs in their apartment search. Of course there is a difference when it comes to rental price of a 2 bedroom, and typically the price is higher as renters are paying more for the additional square footage, but it's not necessarily all bad! The price of 2 bedroom apartments often includes more amenities, such as a washer/dryer in the unit, a parking spot or other utilities included with the rent. Whether your search is driven by the need for more space, or maybe you'd prefer to find a roommate to share your next apartment in an effort to control costs, you can get the space you need while finding a place that’s worthy of calling home on Domu.

What Is The Average Rent of a 2 Bedroom Apartment in Chicago? 

For a snapshot of the apartment market in neighborhoods across Chicago, we analyzed the average rent for 2 bedroom apartments through Q3 of 2018.

In general, Domu's data reflects the conventional wisdom that the farther 2 bedroom apartments are located from downtown Chicago, the less expensive they are. As expected, neighborhoods with new luxury apartments -- such as Streeterville, the New Eastside and River North -- are among Chicago’s priciest neighborhoods. The next most expensive apartment rental neighborhoods are located just outside the downtown area and include the West Loop, River West and the Near North Side.

With an average apartment rent of almost $3500 per month for 2 bedroom apartments, Streeterville is Chicago’s most expensive apartment neighborhood, while West Ridge is the most affordable at $1300 per month for 2 bedroom apartments.
