Hi, I live in Beloit. If I were you, I would avoid the entire east side of the river - this includes Wisconsin avenue. Bluff is okay, and the west side of the inner city is alright, but if I were you I would try and buy in the outskirts or in the new subdivisions that are going up.

I would not buy anything on wisconsin I rented on wisconsin about 1 year ago, there is a strip club and it runs though the "hood" Bluff may not be so bad but not the best either you should really come check it out if possible.

It just depends which areas of Wisconsin or bluff your looking at, there are some very nice areas of these streets and some very bad areas of these streets, there are some large lovely old houses and many are being revitalized, those are old main artery type streets...another area to look at would definatly be Riverside drive that is an old upscale area which has always been very nice, scenic with lovely homes as well as respectable nice residents. there are many areas of Beloit which are very nice and the city has been going thru a complete transformation into a beautiful swan, the hood rats have been gradually leaving towards Janesville and back to Illinois and Beloit has dedicated billionaires which have been pumping much money into town turning the city into one of the most attractive spots in the area. On another positive note Beloit has the Rock river which is more like a large lake much better for boating than areas to the north or south, plus many companies are locating to Beloit from other areas...check it out its worth the investment

The East Side has many nice neighborhoods... the houses near Todd Elementary and Morgan Elementary are nice- and these 2 schools are ranked well in academics for the school district... which is off of Milwaukee Rd or Hwy 43.

Hello,

I'm sorry to say we can't devulge that information, that would be descrimination. But I will tell you that there are some very nice homes on Wisconsin Avenue and Bluff St. and the surrounding areas. If I can help you more, I would be glad to do so. Perhaps a visit to Beloit and taking a tour with me would give you a better idea.

HI!

That, I'm sorry to say is something no agent should answer for you. That would be discrimination. The best thing you can do is come look for youself, have an agent go with you. I would also suggest once you find homes that you're interested in, call the police, check with neighbors of those home and just talk to people in Beloit. I'd be happy to show you around and would be happy to have a packet of information sent to you by the city of Beloit. You can call me at 608-921-4687. Good luck with your home search.
