Another month, another turnover with people moving in and out of apartments. Renting, of course, is for people who don’t have the money to buy a place of their own or who just don’t want the hassle. For anyone in the latter category, a new type of housing option called “co-living” could be a good option, as long as they’re willing to shell out enough money. Several rental buildings have popped up around the city that provide furniture, modern amenities and even friends aka your new roommates. All you need to do is sign on the dotted line.
Morning Shift talks to Alby Gallun, senior reporter for Crain’s Chicago Business, about co-living and other stories on the real estate beat.
