We recently took a deep dive into rents in Highland Park and the answer may surprise you...

Did you know the median asking rent for a 2 bedroom, 1 bath apartment in Highland Park is only $1,100? And almost all of the units in our survey offered parking!

Other interesting facts buried in the data:

  • Median rents for studios came in at $800/month
  • Median rents for 1 bed / 1 bath units came in at $925/month
  • There were very few 3 bedroom units on the market, but these were going for as little as $1,250 and as much as $2,300

It's important to remember that units in pre-1978 buildings are rent controlled. So if you love Highland Park and think it's going to keep getting better and better, it might be worth jumping on a rent controlled 2 bedroom unit now. You might find that you're getting a steal 12 or 24 months from now.

And it's a great time to buy apartment buildings in Highland Park, too. Pay a fair price based on the existing rents and see your cashflow increase dramatically as rents go up.
