About Chetek, WI (Wickware)


Real Estate Prices and Overview

Wickware median real estate price is $171,410, which is more expensive than 54.9% of the neighborhoods in Wisconsin and 45.7% of the neighborhoods in the U.S.

The average rental price in Wickware is currently $702, based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. Rents here are currently lower in price than 74.7% of Wisconsin neighborhoods.

Wickware is a rural neighborhood (based on population density) located in Chetek, Wisconsin.

Wickware real estate is primarily made up of medium sized (three or four bedroom) to small (studio to two bedroom) single-family homes and mobile homes. Most of the residential real estate is owner occupied. Many of the residences in the Wickware neighborhood are established but not old, having been built between 1970 and 1999. A number of residences were also built between 2000 and the present.

Wickware has a 13.8% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 70.2% of American neighborhoods). Most vacant housing here is vacant year round. This could either signal that there is a weak demand for real estate in the neighborhood or that large amount of new housing has been built and not yet occupied. Either way, if you live here, you may find many of the homes or apartments are empty.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Chetek, the Wickware neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the Wickware neighborhood has more Swiss and Norwegian ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 5.1% of this neighborhood's residents have Swiss ancestry and 21.0% have Norwegian ancestry.

Wickware is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 15.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak German at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 100.0% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Occupations

It used to be that most Americans lived on the farm, or otherwise made their living from the land, the forests, or the sea. With global trade and an economy increasingly based on providing services to one another, fewer people farm, fish or harvest timber now than at any time in American history. But according to NeighborhoodScout's leading analysis, the Wickware neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 4.2% of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration of such workers than 95.6% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

This neighborhood has wide open spaces, few people, and lots of space to stretch out. If you like locations that fit that description, you may like this neighborhood. Based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis, with only 24 people per square mile living here, this neighborhood is less crowded than 94.0% of America.

Notable & Unique: People

If you're looking for a great spot to raise a family, then look no further than the Wickware neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's analysis found that the combination of good quality public schools, above-average safety from crime, and a high rate of home ownership in predominantly single-family homes, help make this neighborhood among the top 12.8% of family-friendly neighborhoods across the state of Wisconsin. In addition, there are a high proportion of other families with school-aged children living here, making it easy for parents and their children to socialize and develop a sense of community support. In addition, families here highly value education, as is reflected by the strength of the local schools, in part due to the educational attainment of the parents here, who vote in support of the public schools.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Wickware neighborhood in Chetek are middle-income, making it a moderate income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 42.8% of the neighborhoods in America. With 28.1% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 69.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

What we choose to do for a living reflects who we are. Each neighborhood has a different mix of occupations represented, and together these tell you about the neighborhood and help you understand if this neighborhood may fit your lifestyle.

In the Wickware neighborhood, 35.8% of the working population is employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is executive, management, and professional occupations, with 30.6% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants (16.6%), and 12.6% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is the shared learned behavior of peoples. Undeniably, different ethnicities and ancestries have different cultural traditions, and as a result, neighborhoods with concentrations of residents of one or another ethnicities or ancestries will express those cultures. It is what makes the North End in Boston so fun to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly, why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.

In the Wickware neighborhood in Chetek, WI, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as German (40.7%). There are also a number of people of Norwegian ancestry (21.0%), and residents who report Irish roots (6.9%), and some of the residents are also of French ancestry (6.8%), along with some Polish ancestry residents (6.8%), among others.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Wickware neighborhood is English, spoken by 83.4% of households. Some people also speak German (15.0%).

Getting to Work

How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden. Some neighborhoods are physically located so that many residents have to drive in their own car, others are set up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike. The greatest number of commuters in Wickware neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (40.8% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across America.

Here most residents (84.6%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also hop out the door and walk to work to get to work (8.1%) and 6.0% of residents also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors for their daily commute. In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
