    2: Chicago’s Supply and Demand Dynamics

  • Chicago faces challenges in meeting the demand for housing due to limited land availability and slow construction pace, leading to a potential shortage of supply.

    3: Future Outlook for the Chicago rental market

  • The demand for rental properties in Chicago is expected to remain strong, driven by strong demand from recent Midwest college gradautes and limited availability of single-family homes for purchase.
