Notes about our property data

Use one of the tools buttons to see more data. Many properties don't have information about property owners. This is because the properties are non-taxable (tax exempt) and thus the tax billing name & address isn't included in the source data (Cook County Assessor). Building age data is not always reliable. This feature was supported by the Metropolitan Planning Council.

You can purchase all of our Cook County data in the Map & Data Store.

Data update schedule

Property information is updated twice a year; tax and property classification information is updated after the second tax bill goes out (mid summer), and assessment information is updated when a triad is re-assessed (varies based on location).

Housing market info for Forest Glen

Submarket 6 86.8% of Forest Glen

High cost suburban housing stock, low density, high income, aging

Submarket 6 is the most affluent submarket in the region. Despite high home prices and rents, housing cost burden is low due to high incomes. This submarket shares the trait of high transportation costs with other suburban submarkets. The housing stock can be characterized as mostly single-family homes with a mix of both older and newer housing. This largely owner-occupied submarket includes low levels of subsidized housing. Low foreclosure and vacancy levels and a high mortgage activity level have generated a strong housing market. The submarket is composed of mostly highly educated households, with a high share of 2 to 4 person households, moderate levels of children, and the highest increase in people age 60 and over.

Submarket 4 13.1% of Forest Glen

Suburban post-war housing stock, moderate- and middle-income, lower cost stock

Submarket 4 is comprised of low-density neighborhoods built between World War II and 1959. Housing is mostly owner-occupied, and very little housing is subsidized for low- and moderate-income families. Despite some foreclosures and distressed sales, the private market continues to function, with moderate levels of mortgage lending. The middle-income households that live in these areas struggle with increasing cost burden, due, in part, to higher transportation costs and declining incomes. The submarket has a moderate number of children and a growing older population (60+).

Submarket 5 0.1% of Forest Glen

Suburban 1960-79 housing stock, moderate but declining incomes, lower cost stock

Submarket 5 is a predominantly suburban cluster with many similarities to Submarket 4, except that its housing stock is less dense and slightly newer (built between 1960 and 1979). This submarket has seen fairly substantial increases in housing cost burden, due to considerable declines in income and high transportation costs. Despite being largely owner occupied, there are high levels of renters and subsidized housing relative to other suburban submarkets. The submarket’s moderate levels of foreclosure activity and moderate to high levels of distressed and cash sales illustrate weak investment and market conditions. Submarket 5 is the only submarket with declining home prices. In regards to demographic and socioeconomic characteristics, this submarket primarily consists of moderate income households with lower levels of educational attainment. It can be characterized as a family area with a moderate share of children.

Submarket 8 0.0% of Forest Glen

Suburban 1980-99 housing stock, high/middle income, suburban, aging

Submarket 8 is a suburban and low density submarket largely built after 1980. Primarily made up of owner-occupied homes where higher household incomes more than offset higher home prices and rents. Transportation costs are significantly higher than the regional average. Foreclosures have taken place in this submarket, but not nearly at the levels seen elsewhere. Vacancy rates are low. Like submarket 7 this submarket consists of mostly two to four person middle aged, middle- to-higher-income families with a moderate level of educational attainment and a steady decrease in the number of children per family. Population is growing in this submarket.

What are submarkets?

The Regional Housing Solutions website has a page dedicated to Forest Glen showing where the submarkets are on a map, alongside specific strategies to address problems with housing identified here.

There are eight submarkets, or clusters of similar housing issues and neighborhood characteristics scattered throughout Chicagoland. Submarkets are not contiguous. The "cluster" information is from the Regional Housing Solutions and is based on data from the American Community Survey, collected in 2009-2013, and is a collaboration among CMAP, Institute for Housing Studies, Metropolitan Mayors Caucus, and Metropolitan Planning Council.
