Upper Michigan Real Estate Listings
Up North in the U.P.
Whether Up North means northern Wisconsin or northern Michigan's Upper Peninsula (U.P.), the “Up North” state of mind evokes cabins, lakes, pine trees, and the opportunity to take a deep breath and relax. It’s no wonder so many visitors decide to either buy a second home or relocate there. For those considering northern Michigan, two beautiful Upper Peninsula relocation destinations are Watersmeet and Ironwood.
Watersmeet, MI Area
True to its name, Watersmeet, MI IS where the waters meet: it is where the Ontonagon River flows north into Lake Superior, the Wisconsin River flows south into the Mississippi and the Paint River flows east into Lake Michigan. Because of this, Watersmeet is known as a “Water Wonderland”. Centrally located in the Ottawa National Forest, Watersmeet has 302 lakes and 241 miles of trout streams. Along with the stunning natural beauty, there are affordable homes available in Watersmeet.
Ironwood, MI Area
Ironwood, MI was originally founded in the spring of 1885, when the railroad encouraged the iron ore industry to flourish. The town grew into a city and now has a population of 5,387 in the city itself. It has a historic downtown and a cultural life including Theatre North, the Ironwood Theater, and the Ironwood Dance Company. Nestled in the Michigan wilderness, Ironwood has year-round outdoor activities including biking, hiking, boating, and…skiing! Ironwood’s famous Copper Peak has the only “ski flying hill” outside of Europe!

Working on a budget when purchasing a house?
If you're considering buying a property in the U.P., we recommend you approach your favorite bank, credit union, or other financial institution to receive Pre-Approval. That way, you'll know exactly how much house you can afford and will be able to target which properties fit your budget. This one step can save you excessive time spent or disappointment later.
