Housing

The Northland offers an excellent market for homebuyers. Prices are substantially cheaper than in most of the country, and it's not hard to find a lake view or some secluded woods while still enjoying a short, easy commute and access to food and shopping. The region honors its historic legacy and preserves its older homes well, and there's plenty of space for new construction, too. In the Northland, your dream home is more affordable than you think.
