Contact the school district directly. They have boundary maps available to address your concern. If that is not possible talk to neighbors in Quail Creek to find out. All the best.

Prairie Crossing stopped the buyouts last year, and there are good choices among the avaiable inventory in P.C. My only gripe in P.C. is the taxes! Holy cow, the rates are high in there! There are other areas in Grayslake and Gurnee with a lower tax burden for similar valuation of home. Call me if you are not yet working with another agent, I would be happy to be of assistance and help direct your search to alternative areas!

I heard the same report from AM 560 and they were referring to a three month sales trend. Yes, the numbers sound good but in my opinion it was very deceptive. Home values in Grayslake are declining and market time is increasing. Overall it is not a pretty picture for sellers but as a buyer it gives you the advantage seeing that Congress just approved a $8,000 tax credit, sellers are very negotiable and interest rates are very low. If you would like more information on the current market or you would like to schedule a appointment give me a call at 847.668.2811 ... more
