Welcome-to-Wisconsin

The Wisconsin housing statistics are in for December of 2013. Here is an excerpt from what the Wisconsin Realtors® Association (WRA) had to say:

2013 was a robust year for Wisconsin’s housing market, with both sales and prices increasing by solid margins, according to the year-end housing report released by the Wisconsin REALTORS® Association (WRA). Existing home sales were up 10.8 percent compared to 2012, and median prices increased 7.2 percent to $143,000 over that same time frame.

Strong sales dominated 2013, which is remarkable given that this is compared to 2012, which was also a very good year for the housing market,” said Steve Lane, chairman of the WRA board of directors. According to Lane, existing home sales were up in every region of the state in 2013 relative to the previous year.

Lane noted housing sales were strong despite raising interest rates and prices. “Mortgage rates have increased a full percentage point since January, and median prices have grown consistently throughout the year,” Lane said. “Yet the entire state posted genuine gains in 2013, a trend we hope and believe will continue into the new year,” Lane said.

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 probably have heard, home sales & prices have been increasing over the past few years. Take a look at Dane & Rock County! Marked improvements in price and sales volume, a great sign.

Michael, those are good, solid numbers for your Wisconsin housing market!  If I were in California I would be worried about gains over over 25% last year in some areas!  Nothing like the Mid West and Great Lakes States!!!!!
