Cook County – Cook County Assessor Fritz Kaegi released the initial assessments of residential and commercial properties in Rogers Park Township on March 18, 2024, marking the beginning of the reassessment of the City of Chicago. The Assessor’s Office reassesses one-third of Cook County every year. Chicago was last reassessed in 2021.

“I encourage property owners to review their reassessment notice to ensure their property characteristics and market value reflect their home,” said Assessor Fritz Kaegi. “It is important to understand that assessments in Chicago reflect changes in market value over the last three years. My office will be hosting a virtual workshop to assist property owners and explain reassessments in their community.”

“In Rogers Park Township, industrial property, large multi-family apartments and other franchised commercial classes of property drove a significant increase in assessed value. The value of residential property also grew, although at a slightly lower rate,” said Assessor Kaegi.

The total assessed value in Rogers Park Township grew 32%. The median sale price for single-family homes in 2023 was $450,000 in Rogers Park. Therefore, the Assessor’s estimate of the median market value of single-family homes is $431,000.

When a property is reassessed, the property owner is mailed a Reassessment Notice. The Reassessment Notice reflects the estimated Fair Market Value based on sales of similar properties. The notice also contains important information such as the property’s characteristics, neighborhood code, and past assessments. An increase in a property’s assessment does not cause the same increase in the property owner’s taxes.

Appeals for Rogers Park Township can be filed until April 17, 2024.

How do assessment appeals work? 

Property owners are given an opportunity to appeal their assessment if the property characteristics listed on an assessment notice are incorrect, or if the estimated market value of a property is significantly more than what it could sell for in the current real estate market.

After a township undergoes reassessment, a valuation report is released that provides details on residential, commercial, and multi-family reassessments. Property owners can use these reports to gain insight on how property assessments work, learn about the real estate market in their specific neighborhood, and compare the median to their property value.
