Wisconsin officials create city-wide open house

Officials in one city are looking to spur relocation to their area with a city-wide open house.

Officials in one city are looking to spur relocation to their area with a city-wide open house.

To help stimulate moving activity and interest among prospective home buyers, officials in Cudahy, Wisconsin have planned a city-wide open house later this month to show off many of the more than 100 homes on the market there, the Journal Sentinel reports.

On the day of the open house, currently scheduled for September 25, buyers will be able to get a map of all participating properties at city hall. While there, according to the paper, they will also have the opportunity to meet with bankers about a possible loan, get home improvement advice and research the city and local schools.

The president of the Greater Milwaukee Association of Realtors told the paper that it's the first event of its kind that he can recall. Experts say that the town is ideal for this kind of event, because it has a large number of homes that are relatively close to each other.

Helping to fuel optimism about a possible turnaround - which would make relocation possible for many - is the growth of hiring in the area. A report by employment firm Manpower found that 18 percent of Milwaukee employers expected to add workers over the next six months.ADNFCR-3450-ID-19936926-ADNFCR
