The Wisconsin housing market has rebounded since the housing bust of 2008, and Rothschild and Weston are leading the way.
Both Marathon County communities are ranked among the TOP TEN in housing market health by a financial technology company, SmartAsset, in its third annual Healthiest Housing Market Study.
The study measures health by:
- The average number of years residents spend in their homes
- Home values
- Ease of sale
- Costs associated with ownership
For a look at how these two Marathon County communities compare with other Wisconsin leaders, check out the table below:

The improvement in housing markets is another sign of an improving economy. It should be no surprise that our Marathon County communities are leading the way!
