Most likely not. But there are ways of lowering the taxes through a number of exemptions. And then there is the board of appeals.

The best for you would be to drive through the village and get a first-hand impression. There are many nice neighborhoods in Mundelein and the prices went down significantly. I live in Mundelein myself for almost 5 years now. I don't have first-hand experience with the high school because my kids are still small.
In any case I would gather more feedback from different people, research school stats on the web and make an informed decision.
Please feel free to call/email me your detailed search criteria if you want to see active listings in Mundelein or any other area. I'll be glad to show you homes and get more details on any property you will like.
I can also offer you a free loan preapproval. The rates are very low now so it's definitely time to buy!

The whole country is depressed. The new buyer tax credit has brought many out buyers but, there is still many people not wanting to buy because of the huge mount of job losses our country is still experiencing. The higher the price the the smaller your pool of buyers will be. It is ALL about the price. You definitely need a good agent to market and expose your home as aggressively as humanly possible. But when push comes to shove, there are too many foreclosures and short sales out there so you must be priced accordingly if you truly want to sell.

Good luck to you!

Jim Johnson answered:
Your methodology is flawed. Looking at properties listed for sale will provide a perspective on the competition in an area, but will not provide a good perspective on value. You need to be able to pull up sold properties to do a CMA. Your investors should know that their interests would be served best by using the services of an agent who has this info available to them. ... more
