Welcome-to-WisconsinHome Sales and Median Prices Grow at Robust Pace in April

The Wisconsin housing statistics are in for the month of April, 2015. Here is an excerpt from what the Wisconsin Realtors® Association (WRA) had to say:

For the second straight month, the Wisconsin housing market grew at a very strong annual pace, according to the most recent housing market analysis released by the Wisconsin REALTORS® Association (WRA). Existing home sales were up 16.8 percent comparing April 2015 with the same month in 2014, and median prices rose 10.7 percent to $154,900 in April 2015 relative to April 2014.

After a slow start to the year, the spring housing market has really come to life,” said Dan Kruse, chairman of WRA board of directors. To put into perspective, April 2015 is the strongest April sales total since 2010, and the second strongest since 2006, before the recession began. “The growth in sales was strong in every region of the state and was especially robust in the less-urban regions,” said Kruse.
