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).

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 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.
Submarket 1 consists primarily of urban areas concentrated on the south and west sides of the City of Chicago, but also includes parts of Waukegan, Joliet, and south suburban Cook County. These communities are medium density with many 2–4 flats built before 1940. High rates of vacancy, foreclosures, and distressed sales in Submarket 1 may undercut the quality of existing homes. Significant population loss in Submarket 1 communities is likely both a cause and an effect of local levels of property distress. Nonetheless, Submarket 1 has good access to the regional transportation network, which helps keep transportation costs low. Despite low housing values and costs, declining incomes among Submarket 1 households have led to increased rates of cost burden. Educational attainment levels are low, and households in this submarket are lower income with the largest income declines of any of the submarkets. The submarket has experienced high unemployment, which has increased over time. Communities in this submarket are also aging, now with a greater share of older adults and fewer children under 15.
The Regional Housing Solutions website has a page dedicated to Washington Heights 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.

This data excludes those properties with the "Senior Freeze Exemption" because any property that had it in one year and not in the following year will show an extremely high increase (up to 970% in some cases).
The data includes single-family houses and 2-6 flats that had a property tax bill increase from 2017 to 2018 of greater than or equal to 25 percent. It excludes condos.
