Year End Stats. Wow What a Year for La Crosse County home sales!

Managing Real Estate Broker with Keller Williams Premier Realty

2015 was an awesome year for single family home sales in La Crosse County, WI.  Just about every month had increases in both number of homes sold and in averages sold prices - sometimes even double digits!

1284 single family homes were sold in La Crosse County.  This is an increase of 12.23% from 2014 when 1127 homes were sold.

The average sales price in 2015 was $181,804, up from $169, 246 in 2014.  This is an increase of 6.91% - the largest single year increase since 2005!

We could anticipate these increases since this spring.  The spring sales season in the past has started in March or April, depending on the weather.  This year it started in February when days on market started to go decrease.  If you didn't get your offer on a home within a week, it was either already sold, or it was in a multiple offer situation.  The increased number of sales each month over last years numbers continued into the fall and holiday seasons.

We are anticipating an early start again to the 2016 spring home selling season.  Last year there was 388 homes for sale in January, this year there are 298 homes for sale.  Less choice for the buyer might mean difficulty successfully bidding on a home and a higher price paid.  If you are thinking of buying a home, it may be time now to talk to your lender and get your pre approval ready to make your offer more attractive to sellers.

Wow is right.  Your market was booming last year.  I bet you have another banner year in 2016.

I'm hoping so.  We don't boom like other places, but I figure slow and steady wins the race (and avoids the big busts)

Impressive numbers Joan! The La Crosse County WI real estate market is on the move - up!  Home buyers and sellers would be smart to hire an experienced agent to represent them - one who knows the market Joan Dickie !

I like your blog.  It certainly is easy to read, understand and such good information.  I may even to one for my area.  It helps to know what the market is currently doing and what has happened in the past years so I have a better understanding of what is possible.
