June market report real estate sales in Milwaukee Wisconsin market

Services for Real Estate Pros


Brought to you by April Hayden-Munson, I am a Realtor in Southeastern Wisconsin, welcome to my Blog.

Great news - just announced:  Home Sales Up 25.8% in June - This is the 12th month with increased sales over the previous year.

Home Sales Up 25.8% in June,
28.6% for the 2nd Quarter

These stats come from a  Market report for the Milwaukee Wisconsin Real Estate Market which was sent out today by the Greater Milwaukee Association of Realtors

The 4-county Metropolitan Milwaukee housing market continued its strong increase in June posting  a 25.8% increase in sales.

June was the 12th consecutive month in which home sales increased by double-digits.  I think the perfect storm is here.  With a combination of historically low interest rates, lower prices than we've seen in quite some time and a bit of pent up demand  the market is responding tremendously despite recent fluctuations in consumer confidence.

June also saw a 12.9% decline in homes listed for sale, continuing a recent trend as sales increased.  I've seen many hesitant sellers to go onto the market while it's been a buyer's market.  However, in today’s market the contraction of listings has led to a tight level of inventory, now at only 6.3 months.

The combination of higher sales and lower inventory should yield price pressure in the near future, making it a great time to sell your home if you've been waiting.  I would also like to point out that buyers should move to make a purchase now, don't wait for inventory to dwindle and create a seller's market where you will pay more to purchase a home.
