Most of the time looking at the local real estate data is to see what’s going on in one’s own town or community. But even within a given community, housing prices and sales activity can vary dramatically, so it helps to periodically examine the data at a more granular level. Wilmette is a case in point. Prices here run the gamut, from the $200,000′s on up to the $2,000,000′s. Homes in the Central School neighborhood (i.e., East Wilmette) tend to be the most expensive, while homes in the Avoca area (farthest west and farthest from the lake) tend to be the most affordable. Here are the numbers for each elementary school neighborhood for the first half of 2012.

I find that people always seem to want real estate data on the most granular level they can get it. In particular, people want to know about the schools and how they compare, not only academically, but also in terms of home values. So I prepared this chart showing how Wilmette’s home sales break down by elementary school. Central School, being the biggest of the four schools, naturally has the most sales and the most active listings. It’s also the most expensive part of town, with the highest median sale price.
