If

home is where the heart is, then many people find their hearts in Pekin. With homes that are as diverse in style as their residents are in age and occupation, Pekin homes represent a wide range of ages and styles — from brand new subdivisions to older, more established neighborhoods. In fact, you can almost tell the history of the city by studying the residential market here. Housing costs range from moderate to upper-end. If you are seeking a starter home or looking to upgrade to more space, there is a neighborhood that will meet your needs and budget. New subdivisions under construction have all of the city services you would expect, along with a stunning

beauty that will surprise you. These subdivisions range from moderate to high-end construction. Some are built around small lakes, while others have a wooded view where you can enjoy wildlife from your deck. If you prefer an older, established neighborhood, the choices are many. The city has several areas that reflect the eras of population growth. From stately turn-ofthe-century homes on tree-lined streets (even some streets that are brick), to bungalows that were built in the 1920s, to

the brick ranch homes of the 1950s and beyond, there are a variety of houses in a price range to meet everyone’s budget. If you’re a golfer, there are plenty of homes located on or near Lick Creek Golf Course, Pekin Country Club and Sunset Hills Golf Club. Many neighborhoods offer easy, safe walking access to shopping, recreation and parks.
