This is part one of an in-depth report on the local housing market titled: ‘WTIP Housing Series: The Long-Term Rental Crunch.’

In this episode, WTIP’s Joe Friedrichs follows the effort of Sophie and Kyle Wyatt as they try to move from a St. Paul apartment to a home in Cook County.

The couple had long dreamed of living on the North Shore, so they found work that will allow them to live here. All they needed next was a place to live. And as is the case for many who have aspirations to move to Cook County, this is where things got difficult.
