Celebrate National Homeownership Month:
Building A Stronger Milwaukee Together

Owning a home helps promote stable neighborhoods, builds community pride and is still one of the best ways families can build wealth. National studies show in most areas that it’s still cheaper to own than rent, and June is a good time to focus on buying in Milwaukee.

If you are one of the many renters out there who would like to make the transition to homeownership, contact a local real estate professional who can help evaluate your ability to do so and will work with you to find a City-owned property for sale.

If debt and credit problems are holding you back, contact one of these local counseling agencies that provide first time homebuyer workshops to educate consumers; ACTS Housing, Housing Resources, Inc. (HRI) or UCC - United Community Center.

Explore our properties, programs, neighborhood events, learning opportunities and resources below, and let’s continue to work together to build a STRONGer Milwaukee!
