Is there a search option for rent-to-own apartments or condos?

I am interested in leasing an apartment

These are rare here so not much would show up if anything.

You will probably not find any rent to own in Lakeview because the market has changed and selling is not a problem anymore. I never saw any back when the market was in the toilet. They are a poor idea with lots of risks. See an attorney before ever signing anything if you do happen to find one.

Hi,

I just wanted to express my opinion about rent to own homes. Rent to own usually favors the owner. First of all, there are few homes even listed as rent to owns, so your selection is limited. Also you will be expected to pay over and above the usual rent. Remember all that money will be forfeited if you do not buy the home for any reason (if you can't buy at the end of the lease term because let's say you can't qualify for a mortgage, etc. you lose all of that money!) I would say you should rent while you're working on raising your credit score/saving up for a down payment and then buy when you are ready...

Either way, good luck!

Rent to owns are not very common in Chicago.

Hi mvannorm -
 
Unfortunately we don't offer rent-to-own apartments or condos. What we offer here are for sale and for rent properties. You can click this link to learn how to search properties here in Zillow.
 
You can also visit our Zillow Help Center/Zillow Agent Help Center for other helpful information.

Thank you.
