Moving to Schaumburg, need some help

Going to be moving to Schaumburg next spring. My wife and I are 30ish and have 2 kids of 14 and 10. We also have a small dog and cat. We are looking for a house or maybe a duplex. Hoping to spend between 700-1000. Needs to be a safe neighborhood and good schools if possible. Would like to be within 45 minutes of Schaumburg is possible. We are coming from a town of about 35,000. We also have a 1 acre yard. Just to say what we are used to. I know thats almost impossible in that location, but thought id say so :0) Any information would be greatly appreciated.

If you click on the link at the top of the page where it says "Your TripAdvisor" you will see a link to your PM's (Private Message). This topic will most likely get removed because it is not travel related. That is why I messaged you instead.

If you mean buying a house for $700,000 - 1 million, you probably can get your acre. If you are talking rent, 700-1000/month, that will be more difficult. With nearly $5. gas, put that money into moving close to your job. There is a lot of housing in Schaumberg and the schools are good. Try googling rentals, Schaumberg.

I am not confident that you will find a rental for that price in Schaumburg. I have lived there off and on for 20 years. There aren't any "bad" neighborhoods but you may find a 2 br apartment for $1000.00. You will not find a duplex or single family home for less than $1,200 plus you will pay all utilities. I would say try the suburbs around Schaumburg, like Hanover Park or Streamwood, depending where you work.
