Few new North Shore rentals at upper end

77 Wentworth Ave, Glencoe IL

The slate of new rental offerings on the North Shore was very thin this past week, with only 5 properties coming to market in the $5,000 and up range, and only one priced over $10,000. The paucity of new rentals in this price range is a sign that owners are hoping to sell rather than rent in the spring market.

That highest-priced new listing this week is not new, however. The lakefront home at 1203 Whitebridge Hill Rd in Winnetka, had been off the market for a while and is now back, offered at $14,000 per month.

The highest-priced rental on the North Shore is 77 Wentworth Ave in Glencoe, a historic property on the lakefront. The 9-bedroom home, with 5 full and 2 half baths, is offered at $30,000 per month.

A surprise among this week's new listings is a $1,000 a month 2-bedroom in Kenilworth, at 626 Green Bay Rd. More surprising is that the bedrooms are generously-sized, at 15 x 15 and 15 x 10.
