An important consideration for businesses locating in a community is market rate housing for its employees. A city which is able to offer appropriate housing stock for a wide-range of workforce needs is critical to businesses that understand housing as part of the quality of life equation.
Successful business owners know that in order to recruit or retain qualified and loyal workers, availability of a wide range of qualified housing is as important as other key details of a compensation package.
West Chicago is an eclectic city, offering affordable apartments and quaint bungalows to beautiful old Victorians and stately custom-built manor homes. The diversity in housing stock has been noted as one of the tremendous benefits of doing business here.
Pockets of subdivisions with newer construction augment smaller starter homes as well as those historically preserved. Rental units, including apartment complexes, may be found throughout the community.
