The Wisconsin housing statistics are in for this January of 2015. Here is an excerpt from what the Wisconsin Realtors® Association (WRA) had to say:
Existing home sales fell in January but median prices rose at a healthy pace, according to the most recent statewide housing market analysis by the Wisconsin REALTORS® Association (WRA). Home sales in January 2015 fell by 3.7 percent relative to January 2014, while median prices were up 6.5 percent to $135,000 over the same period.
“January is typically our slowest month for home sales, so it’s important to keep this decline in perspective,” said Dan Kruse, chairman of WRA board of directors. A typical January accounts for just 4.8 percent of annual sales in Wisconsin. “With such a small base of sales, a 3.7 percent difference is only 125 fewer sales this January compared to January 2014,”
