Cook County Property Taxes are Due

cook county property tax information

This week, we received our Cook County Property Tax Bill — in 2014, taxes are due March 4th.

One of the most confusing facts about our property taxes, which trips up many buyers and sellers, is what you’re paying for on that date.  In Cook County, we pay taxes in arrears, meaning that on 3/4, you’re paying for LAST YEAR’s taxes.  You won’t pay for all 12  months’ worth, as you know. You’ll be paying for the first half of property taxes. It’s half of what you paid IN TOTAL the year before.

The second installment, due in the fall, may or may not (emphasizing may NOT) be the same amount. That second payment gets adjusted, based on several factors – property value, tax protests that succeeded or failed, county budgets, and more. Learn how the Cook County Property Tax System works at cookcountypropertyinfo.com.

Lakewood Balmoral – Chicago’s greatest neighborhood!

 

Lakewood Balmoral Neighborhood in Chicago

This morning -Lakewood Balmoral view from my front porch

As a “Local Expert” on StreetAdvisor, I often have to describe what it’s like to live in a particular neighborhood. I have sold properties in 18 different census tracts, each with multiple sub-neighborhoods that have their own unique character. I am fond of so many places in Chicago — I truly think it’s the best city in America–no joking!

It’s my own neighborhood, Lakewood Balmoral, part of Andersonville –in Chicago’s Edgewater Community, that I have the hardest time describing. I have difficulty explaining what a great community this is, full of warm and caring people who, together, make me forget I live in a hustle-bustle metropolitan area. At times, it’s almost like Mayberry!

NextDoor – Online Network for Neighbors

Many of us belong to NextDoor.  If you don’t have this application for your neighborhood- I recommend you start it! It’s a community blog/resource/hub that lets people post classified ads, offers for free give-aways, recommendations for service providers and restaurants, info on crime/safety, and general community updates. It’s a way to get to know your neighbors, but much more, too!

Looking at the posts, one can easily get the flavor of a neighborhood – how many people are members, how they communicate with one another, the general tone of the conversation –these are all indicators of how warm and connected the neighbors are to one another.

So, having said all this, I wanted to share (anonymously) a post and reply from last week’s Lakewood Balmoral NextDoor postings. It’s  a glimpse into what makes the Lakewood Balmoral neighborhood great – it’s says exactly what I have difficulty saying myself….

Lakewood Balmoral on NextDoor

Post from B Sp:

What a neighborhood. Our friend, Carlos, got his Uhaul van stuck this evening. 5300 and 5200 blocks of Wayne both pitched in. V lent snow shovels and called J. J knew whose car needed to be moved. T not only moved his car but helped dig out the van AND move a futon! M lent her shoveling skills and salt. A number of anonymous neighbors offered help in various forms. Thank you all!

In response, LB adds her post:

Dear B, 

It goes both ways- 
Several years ago my nephew was visiting when a car was stuck right in from of our house. He dashed out and helped push it out (it took a long time). I never thought about it again. Last summer, I was sitting on the porch when a man walked by and picked up a few pieces of litter that had strayed onto my lawn. I didn’t know him or recognize him. I was aghast. I asked “what are you doing picking up my litter?” He replied that years ago, someone from my house helped push him out of the snow, so he always tries to help out when he passes by—-What a neighborhood!!!

East Ravenswood Historic District Year in Review 2013

East Ravenswood Historic District was a popular neighborhood in 2013!

East Ravenswood is located in 2 Chicago Communities – Uptown on the north and Lakeview on the south. Because it straddles 2 communities, getting concise market data is a challenge.

The graph below depicts single family home sales over the last 3 years for each of the communities– both neighborhoods have remained strong, but when looking  at each one separately, the statistics are very different.

Combined Statistics for the

East Ravenswood Neighborhood

When looking at ONLY DETACHED homes (old and new) in the quadrant bounded by

– 4000-4800 North, and 1400-1900 West –

one can see a more accurate representation of the homes in this district:

East Ravenswood Home Sale Statistics

 click on the photo above to download the pdf file

The average sales price was 96% of the list price of the home when the contract came in, and it took 108 days on average to sell a home in this neighborhood.

The average 3 bedroom sold for just over $ 650,000 and the average 4 bedroom closed at $ 1,054,000.
