October real estate sales in the Metro Milwaukee area are the best we’ve seen in 11 years! If only we had more homes to sell… Buyer demand has been strong all year and buyers often end up fighting over homes due to lack of inventory. Over the metro area, sales are up 9.1 over last October and up 7% year-to-date.

This is a great time to move up to a better home with low interest rates. While not ideal, remember you can always rent for a month or two if your home sells before finding your next perfect home. You can even end up renting your own house back while your new home is in the closing process. This can be negotiated and is an option to think about if you want to sell but are concerned about finding your next place. Contact a First Weber agent today to talk.
