The Wisconsin housing statistics are in for the month of March, 2015. Here is an excerpt from what the Wisconsin Realtors® Association (WRA) had to say:
The Wisconsin housing market grew substantially in March, with both home sales and median prices increasing at a robust pace over the past year, according to the most recent analysis of the statewide housing market by the Wisconsin REALTORS® Association (WRA). Home sales increased 16.1 percent in March 2015 over March 2014, and median prices rose 8.8 percent to $149,000 over that same period. For the first quarter of 2015, existing home sales were 6.7 percent ahead of the first three months of 2014, with median prices in the first quarter up 7.6 percent compared to the first quarter last year.
“The market is definitely heating up, and it couldn’t come at a better time as we move into the prime homebuying season,” said Dan Kruse, chairman of WRA board of directors. In a typical year, about 27.1 percent of homes sell in the spring months between March and May. “The economic fundamentals of the housing market have been good for the last several months, and we were expecting solid growth this spring, but double-digit sales growth is impressive,” said Kruse.
