4 Bucktown apartments for $1,800 or less

We went on a hunt for the best Chicago apartment deals in Bucktown

Finding an apartment in Bucktown, one of Chicago's trendiest neighborhoods, can be rough going. You often need to arrive with a blank check in hand and be able and willing to spend the most money you probably will all year.

Now, these nice apartments aren't necessarily cheap, but good things never are. The prices you'll find here are just a tad cheaper than you would find in Bucktown's hipper, younger neighbor Wicker Park though.

Thanks to Zumper, we found the best bangs for your buck in the area.

1946 N Wilmot Ave, Apt #3: $1,800/month

Know what’s the best part about this two-bedroom apartment? The extra level above the main floor. Sure, the linoleum doesn’t exactly scream "good taste," but it’s nothing a rug and a bed can’t cover up. The clean, white walls and many windows give the interior an airy, light feel. It’s also close to the train and offers the option for roommates.

2219 N Leavitt St, Apt #1: $1,400/month

You don't live here for the glamour, you live here for the utility—the big kitchen, the nicely-sized rooms and backyard. Luckily, the price is also right for this two-bedroom apartment. Not to mention it's in walking distance to The Map Room, one of Chicago's best beer bars.

1819 W Cortland St, Apt #1: $1,550/month

Another apartment with a good kitchen, except in this case the digs are a little, shall we say, narrow. Nonetheless, for a single Chicagoan who's extra busy, this wide hallway of a living space would really do the job. The bedroom has a walk-in closet, and there's an enclosed sunporch (not pictured). Make a quick trip to IKEA and do away with bulky furniture, unlike this renter with the boat-sized couch.

1821 N Hermitage Ave, Apt #3: $1,800/month

This is another case where the current renter favors bulky furniture and so leaves much potential space swallowed by a massive couch. Do away with it, then swap the chairs at the kitchen island for stools, and you'd be good as gold. A washer and dryer are hidden in a closet, making laundry a breeze. You could also enjoy the breeze on the deck out back. The apartment is on the top floor, too, so there'll be no thundering footsteps overhead.
