Texas-based apartment locator, Smart City Locating, has launched its new Chicago market at a time when rent prices in the area continue to trend down. Smart City believes the steady decline in Chicago residents has increased the need for a well-established apartment locator, as renters are now more likely to seek out professional assistance navigating the oversaturated apartment market and tracking down the best rent specials.
“Market research shows that there’s an influx of people leaving the Chicago metro which has increased the need for tenants in multi-family housing properties and subsequently, decreased the rental rates,” says Smart City Founder and CEO, Cassie Brown. “We are here to connect renters in Chicago with an apartment that’s perfect for them.”
Smart City offers clients many different services as part of its comprehensive locating business model. With white-glove moving resources, unparalleled client response times, extensive market & city knowledge, and individualized real person service, clients won’t feel like just a number. Searches are hand-crafted for each unique client based on their wants, needs, likes, and dislikes. If Smart City is not the best apartment-finding resource for a specific person, they offer secondary service options that might be a better fit.
“It’s simple- we take our client’s searches as seriously as we’d take our own,” says Brown. “We really won’t stop until we get our clients in a space that’s perfect for them.”
Since COVID surfaced in 2020, Smart City has ventured into seven new markets across the states of Texas, Colorado, Georgia, Tennessee, Florida, and Illinois, growing their locating team by almost 300 percent and becoming a nationwide resource for renters.
