Hi everyone,
We are thinking of buying a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo or townhouse around Kenosha. I will be working in Kenosha so what are nearby areas where we can get a small condo for around 150,000? Not a big fan of long commutes. Is that budget too low for that area? Will it be better to rent an apartment rather than buying a small place? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I don't know enough about the various neighborhoods of Kenosha to say anything helpful, but here's a link to realtor.com condo listings. It seems that $150,000 is doable, but on the low end of the range.

Thanks so much. I did research on the internet on sites like Trulia, Realtor and Zillow. We are ok with buying a little away from kenosha. Problem is, I don’t know anything about the areas and so no idea which of these neighborhoods are safer and closer to shops etc

A friend of mine who lives in Kenosha has given me some info to pass along to you. She says that the section south of 60th St., between the lakefront and 7th Avenue, is a very good area with lots of condos, but she's not sure about the price range.

This area is close to a lot of restaurants and other interesting sites.

She says that the other desirable areas of Kenosha tend to be more suburban and less pedestrian friendly, specifically the area in northern Kenosha to the east of Green Bay Rd.

The suburban tracts to the west of Kenosha (and west of I-94) are also very desirable, but they are not very pedestrian-friendly and are more geared toward traditional single-family homes.

There may be good neighborhoods and condo developments in other parts of Kenosha, but my friend isn't aware of them. She lives in an apartment south of downtown near the lakefront so that she can commute to suburban Chicago for her job.

Immediately to the south of Kenosha is Pleasant Prairie, also suburban, but it is considered a good place to live.

Farther afield, if you don't mind a commute, the community of Caledonia north of Racine is pretty nice, and some communities in southern Milwaukee County (such as Oak Creek and Franklin) have condo options. But it sounds to me that the area of southeastern Kenosha neat the lakefront may have what you're looking for, with a much shorter commute involved.

I hope this helps a bit. You might consider looking to see if there's a Facebook page for Kenosha; you would probably get more interaction and information that way....

I grew up in Kenosha and still visit often. The south side of Kenosha is still a nice area. 2 years ago my friend’s son bought a cute cape cod house for 150k in a decent neighborhood in the older north side of town.
