5 cheap apartments in Humboldt Park

Humboldt Park has one of the most diverse rental inventories in Chicago

Advertising

Humboldt Park is one of those neighborhoods where the acceptable price of an apartment is in the eye of the beholder. Some apartments are completely new, others are gut-rehabs, some have been lived in for generations or just a few short years. The inventory is incredibly diverse, and yet prices remain relatively low across the board.

Despite some pretty low prices, the fact is, someone else will always find a cheaper rental on the market. Part of that has to do with the huge uptick in development along the 606, which is inarguably gentrifying the neighborhood's northern border. Many developers will rehab apartments and leave the price fairly flat, while others will label their remodel as a condo and mercilessly jack up the price. Others won't make any improvements, yet increase rents all the same.

The apartments here represent recent property trends in the area.

2655 W Haddon Ave, Unit #CH2: $1,395 / month

This cute, cozy coach house comes at a great price. For those of you who don't know, a coach house is a second residential unit detatched from the primary property, meaning the backyard is your frontyard and your backyard is the alley. Once you're used to the layout and realize the financial savings, you'll wonder why more people don't jump at these gems. Three sizable bedrooms allow for roommates to split the already reduced rent. Windows in each room bring in loads of sunlight and brick construction ensures a low heating bill throughout the winter months.

3652 W Wabansia Ave, Apt #1: $1,500 / month

This two-bed, one-bath ground-floor unit is one of those controversial rehabs near the 606. Though the entire building has been refurbished, the property owner has been gracious enough to offer the same price for an apartment that's been lived in a few times. Each room has a tastefully chosen fresh coat of paint, the kitchen has granite counters and stainless steel appliances and the public areas are spacious. On top of all this, the building also has a new wooden porch.

1638 N Karlov Ave, Apt #2: $1,600 / month

A four-bedroom, second-floor flat is a rare thing in any city, and in Chicago, it's units like these that go for a premium. The only thing is, you won't be paying that kind of price here. Situated near the western trailhead of the 606, this home is ready for winter—new windows, new hardwood floors, a new furnace, even the very walls are new. Yeah, it's a bit far off the main drag, but it's a small pittance to pay. Compared to most Chicago rentals at this pricepoint, this apartment is a palace.
