We offer two, different but related, lifestyle experiences.

Among the written goals of the Champaign City council are “Brand the City as a micro-urban community” and “Create a vibrant downtown”.  At RDI Properties we have always seen our residential opportunities as being intimately involved and invested in Champaign’s Downtown.

We offer a variety of apartment and loft choices with downtown just outside your doorstep.  In the Sesquicentennial Neighborhood, the only neighborhood in Champaign officially recognized as being historic, we offer a second lifestyle option.  Here, adjacent to and just west of downtown we like to recall the old Andy Griffith show by saying “live in Mayberry on a quiet, tree lined street with a picket fence while being a four minute stroll to the best martini it town”.

We are proud of the fact that every season we have a number of new tenants who tell us that we are the best landlords they have ever had.  If you have a maintenance request in to us prior to noon we try to be there that same day.  We do not want you up on a ladder changing light bulbs.  That is our job.  If you have a bulb burnt out that you cannot reach just call.  For our properties with yards we take care of the mowing and the trimming.

As you look around our site you will notice that rents for properties that are not for rent are not published.  We feel that what our current tenants pay in rent is a private matter and not for publication on our website.  We will only ever publish rents for properties that are for rent.

With this last, typically our tenants’ average stay is five year’s.  We rarely have a large turn over.  For the vast majority of our tenants when they leave it is because they are leaving the community or they have purchased a home in the area.  We always ask our current tenants the first of January if they will be renewing.  We have the properties we are offering for rent for the coming august up on our site by mid-January.  That is when you will see available properties and their rents posted.

As you look over our site you will find a lot of other helpful information about our rentals.  Our pet policy, sample leases etc. We feel this is valuable information. If you are interested in our offerings please take the time to look this information over.
