Market Statistics for January 2016 or How is real estate doing, Joan?

Managing Real Estate Broker with Keller Williams Premier Realty

Well, thanks for asking!  Are you thinking of buying or selling?

La Crosse homes for sale 54601 Joan Dickie

If you are thinking of selling, things are going very well indeed.  In January, 60 homes were sold in La Crosse County WI, up from 55 last year.  And last year was a very good year for home sellers.  Average price in January was $170,810 up 11.48 percent from 2015.  Very good indeed!  Days on the market decreased from 67 to 52.  And best of all, in the beginning of January, there were 292 active homes on the market as compared to 388 the previous year.  Now is a good time to get your home out there in front of eager buyers.

If you are thinking of buying, this news isn't very good.  With increasing home prices and decreasing supply, you might find yourself - 1.  Competing with other buyers for the home you want and 2. Having to pay more for homes the longer you wait to buy.  Neither is a great prospect.


This trend seems to be an ongoing theme in most of the cities in La Crosse County, even in the city of La Crosse where the average home price is less than anywhere else in the county.


If you are thinking of either buying or selling, now is the time to act.  Contact me now to start the process of getting you into a new home.  Don't lose your sale to someone else.

KAREN SANCHEZ And sellers too, I think.  Sometimes you can market the stink out of a home, but if buyers just aren't looking, it ain't going anywhere.  I always review market stats with sellers too.

Joan Dickie - perfect seller's marker! Less number of days on market for less homes on market selling at higher price than last year and sold more homes this January compared to last!

Go get listings.....

I'm glad to hear the housing market in La Crosse.  It sounds like those on the fence would be better served by acting soon.

We need to know this information and communicate it to buyers and sellers, as you did so well, so they can make informed decisions. You are the person to call in La Crosse County to help buyers and sellers take advantage of the housing market there. Sounds pretty active!

Hi Joan, La Crosse County, WI real estate market looks good and a seller's market. Buyers need to get off the fence and seller's thinking of putting their home on the market should contact you.

Joan, sounds like our markets are very similar.   Buyers are getting beat out with many multiple offers.  Sure hope the inventory increases soon!
