There’s nothing more exciting than looking for a new home. But with so many options in the market, how do you find the right one?


Green Lake, WI realtors will tell you one thing — real estate is all about location, location, and location. And that’s not just applicable to investment properties. It is also true for residential.

The good news is that Green Lake is generally a safe bet in terms of location. Clear skies, lush greenery, and a peaceful environment make it an excellent choice for anyone who cherishes the natural landscape Wisconsin has to offer.

Nestled on the rocky shores of Wisconsin’s deepest —and arguably the most breathtaking — inland lake, it’s impossible to get a bad view in this town.

And because of Green Lake’s unique lakeside setting, some of the most coveted properties are waterfront homes and homes that command views of the water.

You will inevitably have practical considerations like proximity to shops and restaurants. If you want to live closer to these amenities, you can look into homes in and around the downtown area.

At the end of the day, choosing a location comes down to your priorities.


Green Lake offers you true small town charm. Enjoy life in all its simplicity while still having access to quaint shops, mom-and-pop restaurants, and more.

The small town of Princeton is also just a short drive from Green Lake, and offers even more shops, antiquing, eateries, and activities, including the well-known Saturday Farmers Market. (The fresh kettle corn is a must try!)

But what’s Wisconsin without the great outdoors? Green Lake is paradise on earth for those who enjoy golf, hiking, camping, fishing, and boating. Here you’ll find picturesque trails that take you past wetlands, farmlands, prairies, and the shoreline of the lake.

In short, you’ll have a lot to keep you busy (or not busy at all) in Green Lake.

Square footage

Is there enough room for everyone in the family? When it comes to real estate, square footage is highly sought. The average home in the United States has three bedrooms, and some buyers may want four or five bedrooms to host friends and relatives visiting from out of town.

But bigger isn’t always better — other buyers prefer a smaller, more cozy space. Plus, downsizing and minimalism have been trending for the last few years, showing buyers’ need to keep life simple and manageable.

Storage space is also another important factor, especially on the lake where you’ll want extra outdoor sporting and boating gear. Consider the size of the garage or whether the house has a separate boat house or shed.
