For single family homes, grandwood Park has many choices to offer. Older area on the western edge of gurnee. Newer construction Ravinia Woods has a few short sales under $200k. If you want to consider townhomes you can get a huge newer 3BR/2.5BA with 2 car garage under $200k with monthly association fees.
Call me if you would like me to set you up with a MLS search engine. First question to ask yourself is do you want newer tract home or old, (charm)in a rural character area; 2nd question is do you want a fixer upper or a move in ready? And finally a maintenance free, aka home owner association fee kind of lifestyle?
Let me know!
