October Wisconsin real estate update from First Weber


Wisconsin home sales have outpaced last year sales for the fourth straight month, increasing 13.5% over last October. Median sale price is down 7.8% to $129,000.  It has been a strong fall for Wisconsin real estate sales and nice to have that momentum as we head toward the new year.

All regions in double digit sales volume increases except the Northern region. Here’s a look at sales volume and median price.  (Data from Wisconsin Realtors Association)

 Region Median price 10/2011 Median price 10/2010 % change Sales 10/2011 Sales 10/2010 % change
Southeast  $139,110  $154,750  -10.1%  1493  1253  19.2%

Northwoods  $115,000  $120,000  -4.2%  516  506  2%

Statewide, the median price has fallen 7.8 from last October stats and year to date the median price is down 5.7%. “It’s clear that prices have moderated, and that’s not surprising given the high levels of inventory in the state,” said WRA President and CEO Michael Theo.  There is 15.5 months of housing inventory for sale right now.  What does that mean? It means that at the current rate of sales, it would take 15.5 months to sell off the current inventory.
