Will Clarendon Hills and Burr Ridge appreciate anywhere near Hinsdale over the next 20 years or so? Assumption that all areas go to D. 181 schools.
Generally speaking yes. Since you're dealing with such a long time period and schools are one of the biggest drivers of home prices, the returns should be very similar.
