As you’d expect, Orono is dominated by expensive homes, either on the lake or nearby. But that’s not all there is in the city. From hobby farms and vacant land to quaint cabins, the housing market has a wide range of properties according to the current listings by Northstar MLS participating brokers and agents. Under $150,000, house listings are scarce, with only a few lots and a handful of tiny cabins and cottages away from the lake available. In the $150-300,000 price range, you’ll find small single-family homes, lots, and even a few properties on or near the lake. From $300,000 to $500,000, you can find everything from restored farmhouses over 100 years old and lake view homes to lake-front homes and secluded homes in park-like settings. Above $500,000 to the upper seven figures, each property is unique, with lakefront homes dominating the listings. Homes in this price range far outnumber the rest of properties listings by Northstar MLS participating members. Those luxury properties are stunning in all respects.
