2022 reassessment continues for Cook County’s North Suburbs

Cook County – Cook County Assessor Fritz Kaegi released the initial assessments of residential and commercial properties in Hanover Township on July 8, 2022. Property owners can expect to receive their Reassessment Notice in the mail within the week.

“We’ve seen robust growth in Hanover Township since the last reassessment, said Assessor Fritz Kaegi. “Residential property values grew due to price increases during the pandemic. Meanwhile, commercial multifamily apartments have lagged growth in residential while industrial property values increased significantly. Large commercial properties saw growth on par with residential during the last three years.”

The Assessor’s Office follows a triennial reassessment cycle, which means one-third of the county is reassessed every three years. 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 property over the past three years. The notice also contains important information such as property characteristics, neighborhood code, and past assessment information. An increase in a property’s value does not indicate the same increase in the property owner’s taxes.

Changes in Assessed Value
Residential assessments are based on recent sale prices of similar properties. The 2021 median sale price for single-family homes in Hanover Township was $265,000; for condos, the median sale price was $194,000, and was $340,000 for small apartment buildings.

The assessor’s median market value estimate for single-family homes in 2022 is $260,000, for condos the median market value is $185,000, and is $430,000 for small apartment buildings.

Percentage increases are total increases for that category, not average property increases. If the percentage increase of a Hanover Township property’s individual assessment went up less than the total assessed value increase of 35%, the property could see little change in its property tax bill or even a decline. The full impact of this reassessment on tax bills will be known in late 2023 after all appeals are processed and exemptions are applied.

Hanover Township is the third of thirteen townships located in the North Suburbs of Cook County which will be reassessed this year for Tax Year 2022.  The full schedule for reassessments in 2022 can be found on the Assessment & Appeal Calendar. The Assessor’s Office provides detailed residential and commercial reports—including multi-family assessments, detailed studies of residential assessment quality, and commercial data sources and methodology.
