Rent to Own Homes in Milwaukee, WI

Milwaukee, the largest city in Wisconsin, is known for several things: its brewing traditions, being home to Summerfest, the largest musical festival in the world, and its ethnic diversity and lovely lakefront location. It is also well known in the modern American and global consciousness as being the home to two extremely well known TV shows: "Laverne & Shirley" and, to an even greater extent, "Happy Days." Of course, the city also offers a whole lot more than that, with its vibrant art scene and great food.

Housing Statistics

The central hub of the city itself, not counting the greater metropolitan area, is home to about 600,000 people, with a median age of just over 30 years of old, 14 years junior to the state average. Estimated household income rates are fairly low for the US at a little over $33,000, with per capita income rates standing at about $18,000. In line with these low income stats, housing stats for average home sales prices are also fairly low at roughly $150,000, with median rates of only $107,000, making it a fantastic place to buy or rent to own homes. These stats are based off local trends, with an average of about 1,000 homes being old monthly since 2010.

Arts and Culture

Milwaukee is often know as the City of Festivals, with many musical festivals and cultural and ethnic events taking place at Maier Festival Park throughout the year. Jazz in the Park, a popular cultural event in the city, takes place each week, while others, such as Summerfest, come about once a year. The city also houses a range of museums for both art, science, natural history, and social/cultural history. Most visually arresting of all of the city's attractions is probably the Milwaukee Art Museum, while the Grohman Museum is known for having the most comprehensive art collection in the world that looks at the evolution and changing nature of man-made works. If it's natural history you're keen on, the Milwaukee Public Museum is an absolute must, especially if you're interested in dinosaurs, where you'll have the opportunity to see the world's largest dinosaur skull on display. Well worth the trip for budding paleontologists! Other great museums include Discovery World, Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory, Pabst Mansion, and the America's Black Holocaust Museum. And that's to speak nothing of the city's diverse dining options, public art monuments, and performing arts arena, of which there are many!

Tourist Attractions

Ok, so how about some of the major attractions in the city? Well, we've covered some cultural points of interest, so what else is there? Well, as with many major cities, the local zoo is a good spot for some animal spotting, with a massive range of animals dotted around a sprawling facility. If you're a fan of getting out and about on foot, the River Walk is also a must, taking you along the waterfront and past many of the city's other attractions as you go. You'll be able to head on to Lakeshore State Park or Henry Aaron State Trail, or simply stop off at one of the many cafes, restaurants, or bars along the way for a drink and a bite to eat. Lincoln Village is another place to explore by foot, with the St. Josaphan Basilica and Kosciuszko Park of particular note. Or, if you're in the mood for a bit of sport, why not head to Miller Park, home to the Milwaukee Brewers, to catch a game of baseball. This ballpark is truly state of the art, with a retractable roof and video scoreboard that really takes your experience to the next level.

Neighborhood Guide

As with any major city, Milwaukee is home to dozens of different neighborhoods within the city limits. Many of these have a high walk score, meaning that they're well placed to enjoy the local amenities, parks, and attractions the city has to offer. Finding homes for sale and rental properties within one of these neighborhoods will generally lead to a better quality of life, so it's helpful to know a little about them if you're looking for a property.

Here are just a handful of the best neighborhoods in Milwaukee:

Kilbourn Town:If you're looking for somewhere close to shopping outlets, this might be the neighborhood for you. The Shops of Grand Avenue are found here, alongside numerous restaurants and other eateries, and several schools as well. If you're a young family, it's a great spot, with lower house prices dipping way under the average for the city. This means it's a good place to look for bargains on home purchases or rental houses.

Juneau Town:If you love the idea of hitting the heart of the city, Juneau Town is a good place to be. With its central location and historical context (its the oldest part of downtown Milwaukee), you'll be exposing yourself to some beautiful architecture and easy access to much of the city. However, you'll have to pay for the privilege, with average house prices significantly higher than the city average.

Murray Hill:Again, you'll have to face higher real estate prices here, but you will benefit from a great location just north of downtown, some of the lowest crime rates in the city, and a lovely 'small town' feel in a larger metropolitan area.

Northpoint:You don't get much more walkable than Northpoint, nor do the neighborhoods of Milwaukee come more beautiful, either, with many of the areas looking over onto Lake Michigan. Lake Park is right on the doorstep, and there are lots of lovely restaurants and shops nearby for convenience.
