Community Information

We hope you find our New Resident Guide to be a handy reference for community information. We invite you to take the time to review this guide and become familiar with Kettering and all it has to offer.

Kettering has everything you could want in a community – a fine school system, stable and healthy business environment, leisure activities for all ages and terrific volunteers whose community spirit is contagious.

We are proud of our outstanding city services and the city staff who work so hard to make Kettering a place you can be proud to call “home.”

Housing Opportunities

The City of Kettering’s housing stock is one of our most valuable assets. Kettering has one of the most diverse housing inventories in the area; the City has condominiums, patio homes, ranches, cape cods, townhouses, two-stories and even a high rise.

The cost of Kettering’s housing is also very diverse; the City has $70,000 homes and homes valued in excess of two million dollars.

To keep our housing attractive and competitive in the local market, the City has several programs to assist homebuyers to purchase a home in Kettering, complete repairs on their existing home and renovate their home.
