Fine Living

A Reputation for Quality, Affordability

If you choose to settle in Scott County, plan some time to explore your options. Our urban to rural living opportunities range from downtown Davenport loft apartments to secluded homes surrounded by the wonders of nature. Median home prices are well below those in other regions. In 1998, the area ranked third in the nation in affordability, according to the National Homebuilder's Association Survey.

You'll find new construction of executive-style homes in new subdivisions and historic homes in revitalized neighborhoods. The county's smaller communities are becoming popular places to settle as more residents are choosing short commutes to peaceful atmospheres throughout the countryside and along the river.

Seniors have many housing options, too, in the country or in the city. Choices include facilities with in-house medical care and meal service and others promoting independence.

Apartments range from large complexes and centralized urban settings to renovated homes in established neighborhoods.
