It depends on where you're looking to buy. There are detached home communities and there are Townhome/Condo communities. Some have professionally run associations and neighborhood run associations. Each will have it's own set of rules and regs. However, generally speaking...for detached homes there aren't any restrictions that I am aware of. You are required to have a Village inspection though. If you need information about the specific associations in the area, I can get that information for you.... more
Some of W. Maple IS in flood plain where the eastern end is not. For the cost of flood insurance the minimal expense is surely worth it's cost. Contact me if you would like to see the interior.... more

Yes, I believe the rental market in Wauconda and in other areas is being largely utilized right now. Many people have chosen to put themselves in a more comfortable place and are either renting or looking to down size their current home. I have several clients who are currently renting homes in Wauconda. I am very familiar with the Wauconda area and would be happy to work with you. Please feel free to contact me so we can discuss the opportunities.... more
Hi Cathy, welcome to the nighborhood, live just down the street. I've always "ballparked" my taxes for next year at 2.5%. The trick is gauging what your home will be worth and saving the tax post cards you get form the county. Watch those SSA's that Al spoke about. Many future buyers will want to stay away from those, so consider future resale.
The trouble with home sale stats is that all sorts of different homes are lumped in toghether. In other words, a 3 bedroom home in Maimans is being lumped in with a 4 bedroom in Liberty Lakes. Two completely different markets with diferent buyers shopping them.
My sense of the the Wauconda market is that the homes with SSA are going to be troubled while solid entry level priced homes will be stable.
To get a very specific picture about a particular home or neighborhood, I second Michael's advise, consult a Realtor.... more
