Ozaukee and Washington County Closed Sales Hold Steady

Real Estate Agent with Realty Executives Integrity R.E. Broker 55289-90

Like everyone else, I can't believe we're already at the end of the first week of August! And yet in the midst of summer activities -- baseball games, biking, parties, festivals, fairs, cookouts -- I've seen my real estate sales hold pretty steady over July. You can see from the graphs below, that the same can be said about Ozaukee and Washington counties, as well.

Ozaukee County Sales January through July 2009


Washington Sales January through July 2009


Overall inventory is still plentiful, and interest rates continue to stay below 6%. This is still a great time to buy a house or condo, especially for first-time buyers who qualify for the $8000 credit. Remember, though, that you must close by November 30, 2009.

Opportunity is knocking...are you going to answer the door?

Hi Peggy. Great reminder to get out there and buy before the credit expires.

Charles -- Our sales and prices are definitely down over the past few years, but it seems like perhaps the worst is behind us. I have to say, though, that we have been incredibly fortunate, in my opinion, in that it doesn't seem that we've been hit as hard as so many other parts of the country.

Gary -- Yes! We are definitely seeing 1st time buyers "getting off the fence."
