The Wisconsin housing statistics are in for October of 2014. Here is an excerpt from what the Wisconsin Realtors® Association (WRA) had to say:
Wisconsin’s home sales rose significantly in the month of October, and median prices continued growing at a solid rate, according to a recently released analysis of the state’s housing market by the Wisconsin REALTORS® Association (WRA). Existing home sales in October 2014 were 9.6 percent higher than October 2013 while median prices were up 4.2 percent over that same period, growing to $148,000. “This was a strong bounce in home sales in a month where sales activity is typically winding down as we approach winter,” said Dan Kruse, chairman of WRA board of directors. “In fact, this is the strongest October sales we have seen since 2005 when the WRA began using the current data collection system.” Kruse said. Median prices continued to rise statewide in October, growing at a 4.2 percent annual pace. On a year-to-date basis, home prices in Wisconsin were up 2.5 percent compared to the first 10 months of 2013, which more than outpaces the annual national inflation rate, which stood at 1.7 percent as of September.
