An typical home in Oak Park is way more in taxes than one across the street in Chicago.

Seems to me a lot of people think the tax for typical home in Chicaog is out of this world.

You don't have to live in Old Town and pay $1200 for a studio. You can live in Lincoln Square and a 2-BD for that price.
Thanks for your reply. I simply stated a couple facts as known to our family and experiences in Cook County overall.

It would be helpful to know what part of DC you're coming from, if you like it and want to replicate it? Loudoun? Balston? Etc?? We just did the opposite (Chicgo (Glen Ellyn) to DC (Loudoun via Brambleton). Chicago isn't a bad place. But it is completely different from DC on every level.
