Maggot-mashing 101: A guide to
renting in the South Loop
There are 1,000s of ads
on Craigslist for
South Loop apartments, and other areas, most of them touting the
fewer than a dozen major apartment complexes in the that area.
How does that happen? Well, it’s
simple: a plague of apartment locators (I call them maggots) are
on a holy crusade to make life difficult for apartment renters.
They place 100s of repetitive ads every day, add “South Loop” or
what have you, as a keyword to many out-of-area apartments,
indulge in sheer fantasy and flagrant fraud and on and on so
that you, the renter, lose sight of just how easy it can be to
see all of your options and narrow them down.
Renting a condo, townhome or
There are 100s of condos and townhomes, and even the occasional
single-family available for rent in the South Loop, but you’ll
never hear that from most of the maggots. Let me help you find
find what’s listed for rent in the Multiple Listing Service
(MLS). I recommend my major clients: select property type Rental
and search ZIP codes 60604, 60605 and 60607 (for the South Loop
area) - I handle rental deals all over the city. Contact me
