Popcorn everyones leaving IL

It really seems like the powers that be won't change anything and just don't give a fuck. Is the solution really to just leave this god forsaken state?

"Since 2000, Illinois has lost 1.2 million more people to other states than it gained from other states. This is roughly equal to the 10 largest Illinois cities outside of Chicago vanishing: Aurora, Rockford, Joliet, Naperville, Springfield, Peoria, Elgin, Waukegan, Champaign and Arlington Heights.

All gone in a flash."

The state is fucked. The only direction it is going is bankrupt. They aren't spearheading new ideas or really showing any progression in a new way at all. Just garbage.

We already started to look at houses in Wisconsin this past November. Hopefully when my son graduates from High School in 2018, we'll be ready to move, too.

I've been trying to convince all my friends to come down to Louisville with me. Didn't see anything getting better up there. What's gonna happen is taxes are gonna continue to go up to cover for the people leaving and housing prices are gonna drop because there isn't the demand. Good luck to those who are stuck there for various reasons. I hope things work out for you.

Stuck here for a while. I will keep you posted as it gets worse.

I plan to retire in Virginia or somewhere similar.

There's a mass exodus from the city, and not to the burbs but see-ya, I'm out. And you're not wrong about "everyone." People from all backgrounds and professions are bailing. I believe I read that more people left Chicago in 2015 than any other city in the country.

Nothing truly keeping me here except my wife and I's jobs. We are most definitely going to retire somewhere else, hopefully out northwest, far away from people

Been posted here a couple times also along with the entire state statistics.

Only place I'd immediately move to right now would be northern WI (as if I haven't said it enough) or Dakotas or somewhere northwest but the job market is slim pickings up there unless you're in a trade. I have zero issues with that other than the fact I'd start at ground 0 unless I make a radical occupation change right now and start working on a trade cert/whatever is needed. ...which is something I've been heavily considering recently.

The problem is people are walking away from their residences accepting huge losses, which is like 2008 all over again, values will plummet and even if you get an offer closer to your liking the buyers better have enough down because it will only appraise for their financing that is in line with the comps

If you want to move, I know good Realtors around Chicago. I used them selling my home (before I had my license, years ago) and they did a great job. Stayed in contact afterwards, too, which most Realtors don't do. I still talk with them occasionally.

As always, if the Florida Gulf Coast interests you, PM me and I will send you the best available homes.

Unless properties are demolished someone will continue to pay the taxes (new homeowner, bank, etc) , the values go down like the housing bust, the tax rate goes up, why I paid like 35% less than original purchase price/tax amount yet my taxes stayed the same as they now value it even less than the 35%.

Best thing I ever did was leave. The weather alone made me miserable. I love snow and all but months straight of cold blows.
