BBB accredited business



Homestead Ventures, LLC, is a real estate company which provides free apartment searching services. Located in Chicago, IL, this company serves downtown Chicago, including Streeterville, Gold Coast, Old Town, West Loop, River North, West Kinzie, South Loop, Roscoe Village, Buana Park, Uptown, Ukrainian Village, Boystown, Andersonville, and other downtown neighborhoods. The company is open seven days a week to provide as much convenience as possible and features over 19,000 apartments and 4,000 landlords in their database.

The process begins when a client comes to the office to explain what he or she is looking for, being as specific as possible. An agent searches their database to find a list of apartment that suits what the client is looking for, including neighborhood, amenities, and any other requirements. Then the client and agent drive out to showings in those apartments, which includes looking at the neighborhood and pointing out any amenities or features of the communities that the client might be interested in. The company has a streamlined application process that often allows for approval immediately. This means that the client often leaves the office having already secured their apartment. The service is free to the client and clients can look through the listings online at Homestead Venture's website or visit the company at their offices, which are located near the Southport Brown Line stop.

Visit the website for Homestead Ventures, LLC to learn more about the process of apartment hunting with the company, read about the landlord services available, learn more about the neighborhoods served by this company, or browse their listings of apartments.
