Does anyone have advice on how to find apartments with short term leases? Like 6 months? I can't seem to be able to narrow that down in my searches.

Check Craigslist.com, ForRentByOwner.com, and Hotpads.com. You may also consider local print sources.

Short-term leases are hard to find and are generally more expensive than a traditional one-year lease. For the most part, buildings that allow shorter leases add a premium onto the quoted monthly rent. Your best bet is probably a sublet or a roommate situation. Look on Craig's List for sublets.

That is a problem. Agents rarely deal with them so you will not see them in the MLS very much. Try Craigs List.

Very hard to find in chicago. Work with a realtor to help you. You may have to sign a 1 year and then sublet

LiLa,

Go to http://www.chicagorentals.com/ they will also do a 3 month lease. Presidential Towers Chicago will do a short term lease as well.

Trulia may not be the best choice for that. Try Craigslist or work with a Realtor in the area that you are focusing on.
