Cities with the most expensive homes in the Chicago metro area

Purchasing a home is one of the most important investments there is. More than a place to live, homeownership is an asset with the potential to tremendously rise in value. But with home prices reaching record heights, affordability plays a huge role for buyers.

The typical home value in the United States was $359,402 in April, 4.4% higher than the year before.

High mortgage rates are also making monthly payments more expensive; as of May 23, the 30-year fixed mortgage rate sits at 6.94%.

Although home prices have inflated all across the U.S., there are some cities that command a higher price tag than others. Location, size, age, and condition are all contributing factors to home value.

Stacker compiled a list of cities with the most expensive homes in the Chicago metro area using data from Zillow. Charts show the monthly typical home value since January 2018. Data was available for 348 cities and towns.
