Living in Milan

Milan is a charming and fun town to visit... but what's it really like to live here? Here's what life's really like in Milan.

The Homes

While Ann Arbor might be a bit notorious for its high home prices, Milan's real estate is much more affordable. It offers a good mix of homes—from cozy and affordable to elegant and luxurious—and there are options for both suburban and more rural living. Single-family houses are most popular, and while townhomes aren't common, it is possible to find them.

The Jobs

Though Milan itself is a small community, it's right on the edge of the larger cities of Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor—which means there are quite a few employment opportunities close to home. Some of the largest employers in Washtenaw County include the University of Michigan, Trinity Health, General Motors, Faurecia North America, and Thomson Reuters.

The Schools

Students in Milan are served by Milan Area Schools, a district noted for its academics, its extracurriculars, and its health and safety. In fact, this district has been named among Michigan's best districts for athletics, for safety, and for overall performance...leading Milan to be named among Michigan suburbs with the best schools.

The Amenities

Shopping, dining, parks, trails—Milan has something for everyone. It might be a quaint country town, but that doesn't mean you have to drive to Ann Arbor every time you need to shop or feel like dining out. Downtown Milan has plenty of local stores, businesses, and restaurants, but there are also a number of larger businesses along Main and Dexter streets.
