Affordable Housing

Did you know that the cost of owning a home in one

of our communities is on average 20% LESS than the larger cities surrounding us?


The Cities of Battle Lake, Henning and Ottertail invite you

to look at our friendly cities when you are ready to move to Lakes Country.  

Affordable housing is available, but if you are looking to build your new home, sizable lots to fit your needs can also found.

Battle Lake

In Battle Lake, you’ll find single family homes for sale,  lake lots on West Battle Lake, residential lots with tax incentives for qualified purchasers, and rental units including one-level 4-plexes with attached garages and a new apartment complex set for completion in 2017.    Visit with one of our local realtors to get help and find your best option.  


There are city lots available for building your dream home as well as affordable homes for first time buyers.  A one level quality built townhome complex with two and three bedroom units was recently constructed with another building planned in the near future.  Several other rental houses and apartments are also available.


Having one of the lowest city tax rates in Otter Tail County, buyers have the luxury of finding an existing house or building that dream home on one of the many affordable lots in town.  You can build your home right on the fairway in a 5 star golf course or choose a larger, wide open lot in one of the many new developments located in the city and pay  less in property taxes than in larger surrounding communities.  The City is about to undertake an aggressive development along Highway 108 – watch for land and development incentives to come.
