Personally, I found the rent option appealing because it allowed my family to move into a better school district. Not to mention our rental income exceeds the rent we pay. Searching for homes by school district is really hard though, so I built this tool that can help parents find great Chicago schools with homes available right now within their budget: I wish I had this when I was searching for schools....I would have considered other neighborhoods that are less expensive than we live now with similar school quality.
