Year-to-date sales in the Wisconsin housing market are at their highest level since 2006, according to recent data released by the WRA. Statewide, existing home sales rose 17.6% over last June and the statewide median sales price is up 6.3% to $169,000.
Compared to the first six months of 2014 sales were up in all regions substantially.
“This is the best June sales volume we’ve seen in 11 years, well before the recession began,” said Dan Kruse, WRA board chairman.
Inventory remains tight and if you have been thinking of selling, contact your First Weber agent to get the process started. Great houses priced and presented well may see multiple, competing offers.
