I found the following information on the Chicago Tribune’s Real Estate page on the internet.
It has an interative map of McHenry County (and all other parts of the six-county Chicago metropolitan area) that tells what has happened to real estate values in municipalies with enough sales from which to pull statistics.
In McHenry County, I was surprised that homes in my village of Lakewood (a suburb of Crystal Lake) have held their value better than anywhere else.
- Lakewood: +17.65% with current median value at $353,250. (Our home is a bit below average.)
- Crystal Lake: -32.98% with median value at $157,500
- Huntley: -39.59%, median at $193,000
- Lake in the Hill: -34.08%, median at $147,000
- Algonquin: -25%, median at $147,000
- Cary: -39.77%, median at $156,000
- Fox River Grove: -42.609%, median at $154,750
- Oakwood Hills: -18&%, median at $164,000
- Island Lake: -30.06, median at $114,000
- Holiday Hills: -100%, but median given at $0, so obviously there is a glitch in the data
- Woodstock: -42.14$, median at $136,000
- McHenry: -31%, median $138,000
- Lakemoor: -29.37%, median $117,250
- Johnsburg: -48.38, median $175,000
- Wonder Lake: -27.13%, median $119,500
- Ringwood: -19,2%, median $201,000
- Richmond: -36.45%, median $197,000
- Spring Grove: -33.52, median $232,500
- Marengo: -42.65%, median $117,000
- Union: -1.59%, median $310,000 (something seems a bit wonky with the median average number)
- Harvard: -50.5%, median $99,000
- Hebron: -31.03%, median $130,000
