Thanks. What is the best way to find a rental agent whilled to show me condos on the morning/day of 14th. Are there special agents who just deal in rentals or specific companies? thanks.

John,

Rental agents do not charge any fees. They are paid through commission, which is offered by the owners of the properties.

Des Plaines is a 40 minute car ride to Hyde Park with traffic or a 25 minute train ride!

Thank you for the responses

1) Where is Des plaines in relation to Hyde park/Downtown Chicago

2) I would definitely be interested in using a real estate agent. Can you tell me how much they would charge for helping me find a place--or how they bill.

John,

Your best bet is to call a Realtor specializing in Streeterville rentals. There are a number of rental high-rises in the area, but there are probably an equal amount of individual owners renting condominiums as well. A Realtor should have access to both. If you would like, I can try to recommend an agent in the area.

If you want to try on your own, resources like the Chicago Reader and Craigslist.com can be very useful. The Chicago Tribune's website also tends to have listings for the rental high-rise buildings.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

We are considering renting out our condo in Des Plaines. It is very close to the train and has many conveniences. It is a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom. The rent would be closer to $2000, but it has 2 bedrooms instead of one! If you are interested or know someone that is, email me at flybase21@comcast.net
