The Metro Milwaukee real estate market has seen a few strong months of sales recently and as such, trails YTD sales by just a half a percentage point compared to last year. Home sales were up 28% over last September across the entire Metro MLS. Almost 9,000 residential properties have been sold so far this year, about 100 less than last year at this time. Almost 9,000 have sold, but to sell in this market you must price agressively and present a spotless property.
Year to date, Milwaukee County sales are down from last year by 2.3%, Washington County down by 4.8%, Waukesha County sales are up 3.6% year to date, Ozaukee County is up 4.6% and Racine County is up 9.8%.
Here’s a look at September sales for the last few years: (data from Metro MLS)
|County||Sold Sept 09||Sold Sept 10||Sold Sept 11||Sold Sept 09 vs Sept 11||Sold Sept 10 vs Sept 11|

Up, down, up down, county, mls wide, year to date – the statistics vary greatly. The most important thing you can do to sell YOUR home is to remain open to what your agent is telling you is happening in your neighborhood and community and adjust accordingly.
