MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- For many people, owning a home is high on their wish list. Now, the City of Milwaukee is making that hope tangible for many residents.

Potential buyers flooded the Italian Center on Saturday, March 29th for The City of Milwaukee's Homeownership Fair. Neighborhoods, including Havenwoods and Harambee, were featured with homes ready for purchase.

"What we are trying to do is trying to rebuild the neighborhoods and those neighborhoods that have been hardest hit with foreclosures," said Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett. "You can get families in them, you can get back on tax roll, you can make it more productive for the neighborhood."

Realtors, homeowner specialists and lenders were all on hand to help those looking to make a purchase, and those showing interest were thankful for the valuable help available to them.

"Most of this information I don't know. I was considering a VA loan and I'm actually pushing to do something else, only because of the programs I was told about. I was not going to find this info online or be told word of mouth," said Erica Herrera.

    so empty houses on the north side are given to whomever, and homes on the south side are designated for perverts and molesters?? thats makes so much sense, I would really love to know what the POLITICAL agenda of filling decent working safe neighborhoods with criminals and the insane and filling the dregs with families already on welfare and other government handouts, ALL of which we are paying for, typical COMMUNIST agendas as usual in Milwaukee

      Idiot, no one is giving anybody anything. Those that are interested have to go through the home owner process just like anyone else. Perverts live throughout the city, northside, southside, eastside, westside, suburbs, rural communities. And if you are implying that northside families are all criminals and on welfare then you need to think again! There are impoverished people and criminals throughout Milwaukee and Wisconsin for that matter. People on the southside have their hands out too..they are absolutely no better than us northsiders.
