Explore Milwaukee's Great Neighborhoods & Homes

The City of Milwaukee and our partners have many unique opportunities and resources available to help you achieve your goals of homeownership and also improve our community. Whether you’re looking for a fixer-upper, a move-in ready home, a vacant lot to build on, or are just looking to improve your current home, we can help!

Those interested in becoming new homeowners are encouraged to contact a homebuyer counselor for assistance. Existing homeowners can take advantage of the STRONG Homes Loan, which offers a partially forgivable loan of up to $20,000 to help with essential home repairs. 

We enourage you to spend some time exploring Milwaukee's great neighborhoods with Doors Open MKE, attend Rock the Green in Reed Street Yards, take in the International Food and Art Walk in Silver City, or jump on the Open House Bus Tour with the Near West Side Partners to view some or our beautiful Milwaukee homes for sale. Read more below for additional resources, grants, learning opportunities, news and updates
