The Wisconsin housing statistics are in for the month of June, 2015. Here is an excerpt from what the Wisconsin Realtors® Association (WRA) had to say:
The Wisconsin housing market continued to grow at a very strong pace in June, which pushed year-to-date sales to their highest level since 2006, according to the most recent analysis of residential housing activity conducted by the Wisconsin REALTORS® Association (WRA). Existing home sales rose 17.6 percent in June compared to June 2014, and this pushed median prices up 6.3 percent to $169,000 in June. Comparing the first half of 2015 with that same period last year, home sales were up 12.3 percent, and median prices increased 6.9 percent over that time frame.
“This is the best June sales volume we’ve seen in 11 years, well before the recession began,” said Dan Kruse, chairman of WRA board of directors. Compared to the first six months of 2014, sales were up by solid margins in all regions. “In a typical year, June accounts for about 11.5 percent of annual sales, which is the highest share of any month during the year,” said Kruse.
