Wisconsin Home Sales Dip in 2007 But Prices Stable
State's housing news much better than nation


Madison - Wisconsin housing sales decreased but prices increased in 2007, leaving Wisconsin's real estate market in much better shape than many parts of the Midwest and the nation, according to the year-end analysis of existing home sales conducted by the Wisconsin REALTORS® Association (WRA).

Wisconsin home sales declined in 2007 by 10.8 percent relative to 2006, but median prices actually rose 0.2 percent over the period to $164,000, according to the REALTORS®' report.  Here in Dane County, the median price actually rose 2.9% to an average of $218,000.

"It's a mistake to look at Wisconsin's housing market through the lens of national indicators," said WRA President William Malkasian. "Housing in our state and throughout much of the Midwest is much less volatile than many markets in other parts of the country, especially the Western United States," said Malkasian. "While 2007 was a rough year for housing sales compared to our recent boom years, Wisconsin's housing future looks like it will be brighter, faster."
