The Wisconsin housing statistics are in for the month of February, 2015. Here is an excerpt from what the Wisconsin Realtors® Association (WRA) had to say:
The Wisconsin housing market showed signs of modest improvement in existing home sales in February even as median prices continued to grow at a robust pace, according to an analysis of the statewide housing market by the Wisconsin REALTORS® Association (WRA). Home sales in February 2015 grew 1.8 percent compared to February 2014, and median prices increased 6.1 percent to $137,900 over that same period.
“We know the months between December and February are traditionally low-volume months for home sales in Wisconsin, so it’s good to see some improvement over last year,” said Dan Kruse, chairman of WRA board of directors. Comparing December 2014 through February 2015 with that same period in the previous year, winter sales are up about 1.2 percent. “While the state is moving in the right direction, it’s important to remember that sales last year were hampered by very cold temperatures, and so this is really only a slight improvement,” said Kruse.
