5/18/2015 - Wisconsin Housing Market Rises In April - Click here to print this information

Wisconsin's housing market continues to improve. State Realtors sold almost 17-percent more existing houses in April than in the same month of 2014. The Wisconsin Realtors Association said 63-hundred-55 homes were sold last month, up from just over 54-hundred in April of last year. It's the largest sales' total for an April since 2010, and the second-largest since 2006 before the Great Recession bit into the market. Sellers are seeing a nice increase in their prices, as well. Realtors said their average selling price was 154-thousand-900 dollars last month, up by almost 11-percent from the same time last year. Realtors' board chairman Dan Kruse said that after a slow start to 2015, the spring housing market has "really come to life." He said the growth in home sales was strong in all regions of the Badger State and was especially robust in the less-populated areas. The year-to-year price growth was the strongest since June of 2013, when there was a 12-percent jump.
