Most likely, you are looking that far in advance. It's possible that an agent may get advance notice of a rental becoming available. It's probably best to contact a local agent who does lots of rentals and is affiliated with an active and large local office. It's more likely to find something sooner so you can have peace of mind. The agent may also know of sellers who will be willing to rent should their properties not sell within a certain time frame.

The rental market in the Downers area has a very tight supply right now. Properties rent almost as fast as they are listed. Start looking in May with hopes of finding something and signing a lease in early June. You can have a Realtor set up a search for you that will update as new properties come on the market. Contact me if you would like me to do that for you.

Hi Rebecca, that very much depends on what can be negotiated between you and the owner/manager, usually based on the expiration of the prior/existing lease or whether the home is vacant. The rental market is fairly strong so you might have to be flexible, especially if you are looking in a relatively small particular area......currently there are 4 Downers Grove listings for rent in the MLS with 4+ BR's, one of which is about 2.5 miles from the school at 1622 Hatch Pl, asking $2300. I have another way to find many more options available to you, contact me if you'd like to hear more about this.
