At the end of the day, the local governments that levy property taxes are going to take what they or the 'public' has decided they should take. That just gets spread around to all the property owners. If everyone's property goes down in value, the tax levy is still the same, just that they rate goes up.


Also public schools are cancers on the tax payer and prisons for our youth. Prove me wrong.

No argument there. I had to deal with teachers that were so awful at teaching and classroom management that I wish I had the option to just learn online. I suspect that is going to be a more and more significant factor in the future with failing public schools such as Chicago's. Also you don't have to deal with political groups diverting the curricula away from teaching useful skills to stuff like gay history week etc.

Property tax increases are WHY values are down and there is no reason to believe this will change or improve.

Public schools aren’t the problem. Apathetic citizens/taxpayers are.

Sorry for digging this up, also thinking of buying a home in Deerfield and notice the 2019 tax is close to 2.5% of the asking price. How much has the property tax fluctuate for the past few years?

On a separate note, is Deerfield considered to be an Asian friendly community, interms of safety, grocery, school, etc? How diverse is the population?

Thanks!

Property taxes in this area don’t generally fluctuate. With little exception, expect an increase of 50+% over 15-20 years. They almost always increase regardless of market value. However, the appeals process in Illinois is fairly straightforward.

“Asian-friendly” is subjective. Deerfield is pretty homogenous and known for being mostly Jewish and white Protestant Christian. It’s by no means diverse, and it’s closely-related communities of Highland Park, Riverwoods, and Bannockburn don’t add much diversity. Glenview and Buffalo Grove are much more racially diverse.

Yes. Also, if you’re looking for an “Asian-friendly” burb near/like Deerfield, I think Northbrook (especially west?) has a good size Asian population.
