Tips for first time home buyers in Evanston

Hello, All

Wondering if people have any suggestions on resources (threads on EB, mailing lists, meetups, ...) to help somebody who's looking to buy their first home in Evanston get up to speed on the market, Evanston taxes & rules, etc.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.


  • That's what a good Realtor can do - at no cost to the buyer. Ask around, talk to a few and choose one you/re comfortable with who knows the area and market well. We bought last year with the help of an invaluable guy with a deep knowledge of all things RP/Edgewater. Best of luck to you!

    Agree with Robin about NextDoor and with David about Realtors. We moved to Evanston from the city two years ago and our Realtor was super-helpful -- she knew Evanston really well and understood what would be important for our family. One thing to be aware of is the preservation ordinance and historic districts -- be sure to understand if you're in a district and if your house is a landmark, and how either designation might affect you.
