According to the Tribune,
The lowest combined tax rate in the county this year is in north suburban Northfield, where property values are high. Taxpayers there are being charged a total of $4.461 for every $100 in the taxable value of their property.
Joe Zekas was in Northfield this weekend for Coldwell Banker‘s open house “Tailgate Party” at 11 homes. One of the five homes he visited was 2456 Hedge Row, a six-bedroom, 5.5-bath home with a four-car garage and a large indoor pool, all located on a 1.2-acre site at the end of one of Northfield’s private lanes.
Joe’s initial reaction to the home was surprise at its price, $1.150 million, which struck him as a good value. Cheryl O’Rourke of Coldwell Banker’s Glenview office showed him around.
