I'd like to see a few more local businesses but I also like to the quiet suburban feel. I think appraisals are holding back the increase in residential property value. There have been a few houses including mine that had to sell at a lower price because lender appraisals did not meet the sell price.
I currently live in one of the dorms on campus at U of I, but my home is up in the northern Chicago suburbs. The area around here is great and filled with college life. The area is beautiful. There is not that many good things to do around here but you have to search for them.
