Wichita, KS. Real estate activity for 1-1-10 to 4-30-10

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Realty Professionals

Sales data for the Wichita Meto area.  Our market is quite healthy compared to other markets across our nation.  The Wichita Metro Area never experienced the huge down-turn like other markets across the USA.  Our market has dropped slightly, but is still reasonably strong.  This is a great time to take advantage of historic low interest rates!
