Is it listed with an established agency, or is it directly from the owner or current renter?
Obviously, you would want to use some sort of protection paypal? If this is for Lollapaloozabe very cautious if the offer sounds too good to be true.
Be very cautious no matter when you rent. Even legit renters stretch the truth about location and amenties.
Most are just through private owners I believe. I'm a bit wary to be honest.
It is in Mid- August. I have a furnished apartment that I rent on CL exclusively. I'm honest and it works well--I give exact address and good pictures. I also give my phone .
You do have other options - many of the universities downtown rent rooms or suites by the week, for example. Ok- to be honest I've contacted a few rentals and they all send back basically the same response. That has me a bit nervous.
Happi do you have anymore info? AS, your posts are very vague.

You contact people and they say the same thing and you are suspicious. What are they saying that has you nervous? And, what kind of info do you want from me? I'm just saying I'm a private owner, and I use CL and everyone appears happy that rents from me. I'm just wondering how you collect payment etc.
Via paypal? I'm new to this, so don't want the worry of getting fleeced when I arrive in Chicago. Always good to use a credit card whenever possible, so you have an avenue for a refund if the transaction goes bad.

If you have questions, the owner should be willing to answer them before he sees any money. There are regulations in Chicago about short-term condo rentals, and not everyone follows them - you could wind up in a bad situation that way.
Definitely find out how long this person or company has been in business, and google the name and address separately - you may be surprised at what comes up. Browse all 34, Chicago topics ». Apartment Rental From Craigslist. Watch this Topic.
