Have been reading the blogs and feel confused on East Side, West Side being safer area, less on crime. North or South? Love the natural features of homes in 70 - 100M. Currently live in Gurnee area and budget outpriced so need to relocate. Kids in an uproar that I am considering it. Need to find a place I can afford and feel I am safe and have a solid home. Not relocating until May of next year. Your thoughts appreciated.

What does 'home in 70 - 100M' refer to(?) Is that a mis-print as a reference to price point (e.g.70K-100K), or are you referring to square meters(?)

I live in Rockford so feel free to message me.

To answer your questions. The east side is the safe side. North East would be safest. The schools here are terrible. If you can, try getting into Roscoe or Rockton school district. If not, Belvidere School district is ok.

I live on the east side near the tollway. Crime is all around, you get used to hearing sirens. Crime aside there is lots of restaurants, parks, and things to do. Housing is also very cheap.

Stay away from the West side.

Freeport is quite a ways out, what draws you to that town?

Personally? I'd not move to Illinois if you can help it at all. I moved here 18 months ago. I just started an active job search to get out as fast as possible. This state is just so broken.

Look in Wisconsin or Iowa instead.
