Portage
French fur traders described this place as "le portage" because it was a natural lowland between the Fox and Wisconsin Rivers. The name stuck!

Portage is a city in the county seat of Columbia County, Wisconsin, with a population of 10,324. It's basically a suburb of Madison, and the slogan is "Where the North Begins." It covers about 10 miles on the map, so residents have plenty of room to stretch out. The city is surrounded by prairies and grasslands, and just west of it are the Baraboo Bluffs. The streets were laid out on a traditional grid system, but today that grid is a little mixed up because of the many marshes and lowlands in Columbia County. The town center is still on a tight grid, but the outer edges have a more suburban feel and are more spread out.

Moving to Portage

If you're looking for housing for rent in Portage, you've made a great choice. Not only are homes here far below the national median cost, there are also tons of house rentals available!

Getting Started

The best thing to do is start thinking about what kind of place you want to live in before you start your hunt. Do you want a single-family home, or are you looking for condos for rent or a unit in a big apartment complex? Do you like being close to city parks? Do you need to be near a major highway in order to commute? What is your price range? How many rooms do you need? Once you have all of this figured out, it will make your hunt much easier! You can start contacting different landlords and realtors in order to start viewing apartments. It's a great idea to look at apartments all over the city to give you an idea of what is available and what the prices are like.

What You'll Need

In order to move here, you're going to need to schedule a number of apartment viewings. When you go to the viewings, show up on time and dress respectably! If you treat this like a job interview and act professionally, you'll have a much better chance of scoring the apartment you want. Make sure to bring a folder with all the documents you need. You'll want to bring a copy of your ID, your bank statements, credit report, pay stubs, letter of employment, references, etc. so that your landlord can start processing your application right away. Don't let the little details like this keep you from getting the apartment you want. And bring your checkbook, too! Writing a deposit check can be a dealmaker the second you see an apartment you love. You might also have to pay a fee upfront to have your credit checked -- this is an additional cost, so be prepared to write a check for that as well!
