The number of downtown homes and condos listed for rent in the local MLS increased modestly this past week, as it had in the previous two weeks. There are now 789 homes and condos listed for rent in the 14 ZIP codes that we track. This is the highest number available since mid-May, and in line with the seasonal increase that we saw at this time last year, when the number of available units increased to 1,145.
The largest week-over-week increase was in South Loop ZIP code 60605, which went from 67 to 78 available units, similar to last year's increase during the same period. That's well below the mid-June level of 106.
