Housing

Whatever you consider a “dream home,” the Milwaukee Region offers it – lakefront homes in Kenosha’s Harbor Park; high-rise condominiums in downtown Milwaukee; century-old mansions built by the business barons of the 19th and 20th centuries; multi-acre, riverfront estates; golf course communities or “green homes” located in environmental conservancy districts. There’s a home for every budget – from starter homes in the $100,000 range to multi-million dollar estates. There’s a wealth of rental options as well, including luxury apartments, townhomes and duplexes.

No matter your choice, you’re close to where you want to be. The region enjoys one of the lowest commute times in the nation, which means work, play and home are never far away.
