Renovations are now complete. We’re looking for homebuyers to move in to our READY-TO-GO-HOMES!


READY-TO-GO-HOMES and the Milwaukee Challenge Fund

READY-TO-GO-HOMES are available under the City of Milwaukee’s Strong Neighborhoods Plan and the Milwaukee Challenge Fund. This initiative represents a partnership between the City of Milwaukee, the Housing Authority of the City of Milwaukee and Riverworks – working together to improve homes and neighborhoods.

When you buy a READY-TO-GO-HOME, you will be buying a fully renovated home in the Harambee neighborhood. That means your home is “move in” ready and may include a new roof, furnace, water heater interior and exterior improvements and more! These are great features if you are purchasing a home, because it means you won’t have the expense of fixing them on your own, either now or in the near future. 

In addition to buying a rehabilitated home - you will be part of the Harambee neighborhood. In Harambee, you will find committed residents and neighborhood organizations, new housing and commercial development, parks, the Beerline Trail and many other amenities.

If you are interested in getting on the list to be the first to be notified when the homes are available for purchase, contact Dario Romero at (414) 286-5473, or send an e-mail with your name, address (home address or email address) to
