The Wisconsin housing statistics are in for September of 2013. Here is an excerpt from what the Wisconsin Realtors® Association (WRA) had to say:
Wisconsin home sales were very strong in September, continuing the robust pace that has characterized the year. Sales of existing homes were up 15.8 percent in September compared to that same month in 2012 — representing a 13.6 percent increase through the first nine months of the year. Median prices posted similar gains, increasing a very solid 6.7 percent in September relative to September 2012 — an increase of 7.8 percent year to date compared to the first nine months of 2012. Home sales have now been up for 27 straight months and median prices have consistently grown in all but one of the past 19 months.
“As we move out of the summer selling season, this growth in home sales is remarkably strong and shows signs of growing even stronger,” said Steve Lane, chairman of the WRA board of directors. “We need to remember that this growth in home sales is occurring even as mortgage rates are up by almost a full percent compared to where they were this time last year, and state job growth has been modest at best,” he said.
All regions saw their existing home sales grow by double-digit margins in September, compared to September 2012, with three regions increasing more than 19 percent, and the remaining three in the range of 11 to 15 percent. The areas with the strongest growth in September were the Central region, which was up 21.7 percent relative to last September, followed closely by the North and South central regions, which grew just over 19 percent for the period. The West region increased 14.9 percent; the Southeast grew at 14 percent, and the Northeast region increased 11.5 percent over the period.
