Chicago is a big city, with average rent varying widely depending on the location. So an average rent for the entire city is kind of a meaningless statistic.

We'd have to know the kind of neighborhood you're looking for. On the whole the average rent is probably far lower than what it costs to live in a decent, moderately safe neighborhood.

Default Maybe this link will help

Hi,

I'm not from Chicago, but feel that this table gives you a fairly good idea based on area.

Locals, please feel free to give your opinions.

Chicago Apartment Finder - Chicago.com
(In the middle of the page it states:
To learn more about current apartment prices in various Chicago neighborhoods, please click here.)
Click and a table will pop up.

Oh I'm very well aware of that, but the OP said AVERAGE. So ballpark most rents are between about $500 for a studio and $5000 in Gold Coast area with of course some being higher.
