David asks…

I want to know where to find an no credit check apartment.?

I wanted to know where to find an no credit check apartment in chicago illinois for an studio apartment.

Administrator answers:

I realize that the choices you made may have been poor. But every one needs a place to live. I don’t understand why ppl feel that ppl with bad credit love the idea of having it. If you are responsible enough to maintain a job you deserve a decent place to live.

I would try or craigslist. The places in Chicago that do not perform credit checks for their apartments are in BAD areas and bad living conditions.

Sandra asks…

What Chicago areas would you recommend?

I’m planning on moving to Chicago Illinois from Saint Louis Missouri because Missouri is ABSOLUTELY boring and nothing to do. I’m either moving there myself or with a family member. I want to move in a studio apartment, an AFFORDABLE one, also to move in a safe neighbor. And yes, I have quite a lot of money but thats just for food, shelter, etc. So what area like..street, neighborhood or whatever would you suggest? AND, How affordable are studio apartments there?

Administrator answers:

Lincoln Square, Ravenswood, and North Center
It is pedestrian friendly, public transportation is nearby, nightlife, grocery stores, parks, huge library, plenty of good restaurants, about 15-30 minute commute to downtown, not too far from lake not too far from expressway 90/ 94, etc..etc..studios depends on how much and how nice you want to live you can maybe get away with a shoebox size studio for like 500-700 decent nice size 600-900 and spacious 1 bedroom 750- 1100.

William asks…

Flies and Knat problem?

I live in a small studio apartment in Chicago and, at the same hour every night, I end up with tons of the little knatlike flies on my ceiling and wall. I walk around spraying them with cleaning fluid, which seems to kill them nicely, but why are they here? And why at the same hour every night? Any insight? This has never been a problem until a few weeks ago.

Administrator answers:

Did you get any new plants? Sometimes I get soil with little knats in it. If not, then there could possibly be some in your apartment building that happen to drift up to your apartment.
