The Wisconsin housing statistics are now in for November of 2011. Here is an excerpt from what the Wisconsin Realtors Association (WRA) had to say:
"We are definitely closing out the year on a strong note," said Rob Keefe, Chairman of the WRA Board of Directors, noting that the seasonal pattern of home sales typically slows as winter approaches. "The strong market of the last few months has pulled sales in 2011 nearly even with the 2010 level," he said. Keefe noted that year-to-date home sales through the end of November are now less than 1 percent below last year, and that is without any bump from the federal government to stimulate existing home sales.
"This is clearly a buyer's market, and while inventories are down from October, they still remain high at more than 14 months," said WRA President and CEO Michael Theo. "This means buyers will be in the driver's seat for the foreseeable future. The economy did get a little good news in November with an improvement in the national unemployment rate and even an uptick in consumer confidence and consumer expectations"
Below are the number of Home Sales and Median House Prices for the state of Wisconsin, Rock County, and Dane County. These stats include Janesville and Madison. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions pertaining to these figures. As you can see, home sales have been increasing substantially this year. What I find most interesting in November's data is that Rock County Wisconsin home prices are actually increasing, while Dane County Wisconsin home prices have been decreasing. Both counties continue to have an uptick in the number of homes sold.
