Deer Park Illinois is one of my favorite places. Having lived in Deer Park Illinois for over 6 years; we only left because we relocated to Florida for a year; I don't understand why other real estate professionals label it as Barrington. Well maybe I know why they do it, but I feel it's disrespectful of the beauty that is Deer Park Illinois. If you are not a local let me explain more about Deer Park Illinois and it's association with Barrington. Deer Park is a small village in Lake County Illinois that happens to share the Barrington Illinois zip code of 60010. Why? Why doesn't Deer Park have it's own zip code? The answer is  simple. Deer Park does not have it's own post office. It is serviced by the Barrington post office, therefore it shares the zip code. What else does Deer Park Illi...

Deer Park IL Homes - Choose From Single Family or Town Homes. When I lived in Deer Park between 1997 and 2003 there were only single family Deer Park IL homes for sale. That's now changed as there are two small subdivisions of town homes, both close to the Deer Park shopping mall. Because they are two different types of housing the answer to the question, how long will it take to sell my house, can only be answered by seperating the two types and looking at market data for each. Single Family Deer Park IL Homes - 2011 Market Data In 2011 there were 18 homes sold in Deer Park. That does not seem to be very many. Of course there may well have been some sales in Deer Park not accounted for in the report because some Realtor's seem to think putting the address down as Barrington is better. ...

  I am so very happy for my buyers who closed their purchase today. It has been a long ordeal and certainly tested their patience. I am just thrilled to see them with keys in hand at last. Finally they can move forward with their city to suburbs relocation.When we first met they had a little boy of two and a newborn. These two little guys are now four and a half and the youngster was three today. Sometimes it does take a long time to find the house you want. Going back to when we met they did find a foreclosure and made an offer but it did not work out. We kept searching but the foreclosures that we looked at were just not right.So we took a little time off and came back with renewed energy the following year. We found a short sale in Deer Park they really liked but the price was a litt...

A couple days ago...jogging and walking Tucker (our dog) in our neighborhood The Squires in Deer Park, I met one of our very generous neighbors in The Squires.  He has taken on the job of repainting the signs in our neighborhood.  He said he enjoys painting and doesn't mind spending his time and saving the association money.  The Squires is filled with winding roads, trees and small hills.  All the lots are 1 acre or more and the homes are about 2500-3200sf.  Our artist did not want to be photographed so I snuck a photo of a work of art in progress and have included a few more photos of this great neighborhood. When our Professional Artist is complete, I will take more photos and update this post. Happy Spring!                               Posted By:  Julie Anne - The Julie Anne Real ...

Deer Park Illinois is a village with about 1000 homes and shares the zip code of Barrington IL. It is true that many people collectively consider Deer Park to be part of Barrington but it is not. Deer Park is a village in it's own right with a village hall. Deer Park Illinois was established as a village in 1957. There are about 3100 people living in Deer Park Illinois and residents can enjoy the park like setting they live in and nearby Cuba Marsh. The Village Hall is located at Vehe Farm just off Cuba Road. Vehe Farm is a centennial farm of Illinois and was recently restored and provides the community of Deer Park with a multi-use facility.

Deerpath Estates in Deer Park IL-Homes For Sale or Build Your Dream Home Deerpath Estates in Deer Park IL is centrally located in the village boundaries and offers single family homes on 1 acre lots. Most of the homes are about 20-25 years old but there is opportunity to build your custom dream home on the few remaining lots. Below is a new home built on Wildrose Drive. It's funny because before they built on the road it was called Bobwhite Lane. Although a cul de sac it meets up to the original Bobwhite Lane which is in The Squires subdivision on the other side. Perhaps it was going to be a continuous road, who knows. Wildrose Drive has one lot left and Wellington Homes are advertising a custom home for you. If new is not for you Deerpath Estates offers 3, 4 and 5 bedroom homes with pr...
