Taxes are likely $4,000 but in most foreclosures around the area the city has assessed fees to the taxes as special assessments since the people weren't taking care of the property. Water bills, grass cutting, snow clearing, there was a new alley that they may still owe money for as well. ... more

Where are you looking at the list? If it is RealtyTrac their information is out of date. They list homes that are in the foreclosure process, not necessarily for sale or ever will be for sale.

I publish a FREE list of foreclosed homes weekly. You're welcome to it, but you should know I'm a Realtor providing free information. If you'd like it you can access it from my Facebook page or provide me your e-mail address and I can send it to you with everyone else that has requested that free information. You can also opt out of the e-mail at any time.

Yes, they are public record. Visit the city of Milwaukee's website at and go into the city's site not the county's and then click on get property information on the left hand side. I have included the link below hopefully it will work. Once to the page enter the property address and then go to the middle of the page and click on the details for Property Recording, Code Violations, Service Requests and Permits. Click on view under violations and anything with a "N" under final status is still open and needs to be completed.

Good luck and let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

According to the tax records that property is zoned LB2 which is commercial. According to the City of Milwaukee Zoning Ordinances bed and breakfast appears to be a permitted use. Always best to check with the municipality though...
