    THE MOST EXPENSIVE PLACES TO BUY REAL ESTATE IN WISCONSIN

    In our small real estate office in WI....I am an "inside sales" agent. Which means I call a lot of people everyday: people struggling to sell their homes on their own, people who have tried for months, maybe even years, to sell their homes with passive realtors and consequently don't, people looking for homes to fix up and flip, people looking for homes with more bedrooms and baths because their family is mushrooming at a rate they never anticipated, and so on and so forth as it goes. The wants and needs to be involved in real estate are endless. Its a field that seems to draw everybody's attention. And in many of those conversations this recurring question pops up: what are the most expensive places in WI to live?

    They could have asked: which are the cheapest communities to live in, but that would render places no one has ever heard or would want to move to because there's nothing there. Cheapest for a good reason. So here they. If you want to spend the big bucks and throw money at brick and mortar like nobody else...put these town in your real estate cross hairs: 1. Chenequa 2. River Hills 3. Shorewood 4. Maple Bluff 5. Oconomowoc 6. Nashotah 7. Elm Grove 8. Merton 9. Mequon 10. Delafield. 

    Personally, this means nothing to me because I grew up German. And the only thing you would ever brag about is how much you didn't pay for anything. Oddly enough though....I have lived in 3 out of 10 of these communities and currently live in none. Today my heart belongs to a little town in WI known as West Bend, a beautiful community of healthy economic diversity residing peacefully in the "west bend" of the Milwaukee River for which the community took its name. So I have come to believe that balanced diversity is better than homogeneity where places to live are concerned. But you be the judge.
