Walker's Point is one of the top five most popular neighborhoods for renters in Milwaukee.

Apartment Guide tallies the top five MKE neighborhoods for renters

Apartment Guide blogger Brian Carberry has compiled a list of the five most popular neighborhoods in Milwaukee for renters, and the results are not terribly surprising.

They are, in order:

  1. Downtown
  2. Lower East Side
  3. Walker's Point
  4. Third Ward
  5. Yankee Hill

Most glaringly absent? Bay View, for one. The East Side for another. Perhaps a little more surprising is the accompanying average rents data that Carberry provides.

Average Milwaukee rent for a one-bedroom is $1,550; for a two-bedroom, it's $2,568.

Rents in the Third Ward exceed those numbers. A one-bedroom just south of the I-794 spur will run you an average of $1,884, and two-bedrooms go for a whopping $3,310.

In Yankee Hill and the Lower East Side, rents average lower than the overall area rate, at $938 and $1,625; and $1,472 and $2,268.

Rents are more mixed Downtown and in Walker's Point. In the former, one-bedrooms check in at about $13 under the area average, while two-bedroom units run $133 above. The reverse is true in Walker's Point where one-bedroom apartments average $214 above the area rate but two-bedrooms clock in at $557 below the area average.
