Property taxes are very specific to area and the home size, value, etc. You can look up different addresses in the cook county assessor website and see the assessed value. With the PIN number on that site, you can look up the taxes on the cook county treasurer.

Or you can talk to a Realtor in the area who will tell you where the taxes are the best in the area and help you through the process. I would suggest the latter. If you are looking at a specific price point per month, taxes and price go hand in hand. Talking to a professional will help you see all sides.

By going to your county assessor’s office or recorder’s office , you have found the amount of real estate property taxes for a home or Contact local real estate agents to obtain the property taxes on a home. He/She can review records for current and former property listings.

Just as your real estate broker.

Based on what your price range and size of home are, he/she can pull comps and property tax info which will give you a good idea of how much the property taxes are.

I would be happy to help. Just give me a call at 847-533-7115.

There are a lot of factors involved in determining what the taxes are for a particular property. If you live in the area and are looking to file a property tax appeal, I would suggest talking to someone who specializes in filing appeals like an attorney. If you are looking to purchase a home in the area and want to find out what property tax values are, you might want to get in touch with a Realtor who can help you with the research. Good Luck!

Property taxes are not based on the area as much as they are based on the property, SF, property type etc.

the link is a sold property.... I am not quite sure from your question, why you are interested in the property taxes in this area, I am assuming that you are trying to reduce your own taxes and are looking for the taxes of similar properties in your neighborhood in that case go to the cook county assessors office and try to find that information.

If for any other reason you should connect with a local experienced Realtor to assist you....
Hope this helps

If you want a general sense of the property taxes, a realtor can take the average property tax bill for similar houses in the area. For a specific house, you simply look up the pin number on the Cook County Treasurer website.
