Well preserved Victorians, compact bungalows, contemporary ranch style houses and stately two-story homes are graciously mixed and blended throughout Gothenburg’s residential areas. Gothenburg – a city for families and people looking for a home.
Purchasing an Existing Home
Most homes close to the downtown district and along Lake Avenue (one of the most beautiful “Main Streets” in Nebraska) are 70+ years old. The growth in Gothenburg has been to the north edge of town. A limited number of new homes are also being built at Wild Horse Golf Club. Homes there will occasionally be available. Prices range from $40,000 to $500,000 although most are priced between $50,000 to $200,000. The median cost of homes being purchased are $125,000. There were over 50 homes purchased last year with the average cost being $105,000. They vary in age from new to 100+ years. Realtors listed in the directory can be contacted.
Building New Homes
A limited number of vacant lots are available around the community and are priced between $15-30,000. A tract of land in the northeast part of town has recently been developed with infrastructure in place. These are priced between $25-28,000. Lots at Wild Horse Golf Club are available for $20-40,000. For those interested in “loft-style” living in a downtown environment, buildings downtown are sometimes available for sale which would be suitable for renovating into single-family homes. The price per square foot to have a home built is going to range between $110 to $150. Contractors are listed in the directory.
