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 North Center

Submarket 3 99.9% of North Center

Higher density urban, high income, young, high home prices and rents

The majority of submarket 3 falls within the boundaries of Chicago, as well as parts of Oak Park and Evanston and can generally be characterized as a strong urban market. High and growing incomes generally mitigate high and increasing home prices and rents, resulting in lower levels of cost burden. Submarket 3 has the lowest transportation costs of any submarket. The housing stock can be characterized as high density urban, primarily consisting of older homes. While many residents of this submarket rent, only in submarket 3 did the share of households renting decline. Lower levels of subsidized housing are found in this submarket. Submarket 3 has a very active housing market with high levels of mortgage activity, turnover, and low vacancy. There are low levels of foreclosure activity and cash sales. The households in this submarket are younger, middle and higher income, with high levels of educational attainment. Smaller households, often 1-person, with few children fit the submarket’s high-density design. Submarket 3 was the only submarket to see an increase in median household income.

Submarket 2 0.1% of North Center

Higher density urban and suburban, large households, high foreclosure/moderate vacancy, low/moderate income

Submarket 2 consists of urban and suburban homes built before 1940 in parts of Chicago, Aurora, Elgin, Joliet, and Waukegan. Declining incomes likely influence the high and increasing levels of cost burden. Low transportation costs moderate concerns about high levels of cost burden. Many households rent, but comparatively fewer live in subsidized units than in submarket 1. The submarket has higher levels of foreclosure activity, but moderate levels of vacancy. Mortgage investment is low but cash sales are high, which when combined with the high foreclosure rates and low vacancy rates, points to the transitioning of homes from owners to renters. The larger households in submarket 2 frequently have children under the age of 15.

What are submarkets?

The Regional Housing Solutions website has a page dedicated to North Center 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.
