Property Taxes are high in both Wilmette and Evanston, though probably a little bit higher in Wilmette. If you are low income, I suspect there is more help for you in Evanston though I can't say for sure.

I like both communities, but Evanston is more diverse and has a large college population from Northwestern. That brings both opportunities and problems depending upon how you see college students. You really have to decide what you prefer. Wilmette is more upscale. Evanston, imo, is more down to earth.

Where is job, or parent's job? What is your budget for rent or mortgage? Why the focus on ONLY Wilmette and Evanston?
