Wisconsin August 2014 Housing Statistics

Welcome-to-WisconsinThe Wisconsin housing statistics are in for August of 2014. Here is an excerpt from what the Wisconsin Realtors® Association (WRA) had to say:

Home sales fell for the second straight month in August whereas median prices rose by modest margins. Wisconsin’s existing home sales dropped 5.7 percent in August compared to August 2013, and median home prices were up 3.3 percent to $157,000 over that same period, according to the most recent housing market report released by the Wisconsin REALTORS® Association (WRA).

Home sales continue to lag behind 2013, and while it’s important to remember that 2013 was a strong year for sales, there are a number of other contributing factors that also explain relatively lower sales,” said Steve Lane, chairman of the WRA board of directors. “Inventories are tighter in our metropolitan areas compared to rural areas, and some buyers may be having difficulty finding homes to buy in those markets,” Lane said. Metropolitan counties had 7.7 months of available inventory in August, and their sales were down 8.1 percent compared to August last year. In contrast, rural counties have 16.6 months of inventory, and their sales were essentially flat, falling less than 0.2 percent.

Below are the number of Home Sales and Median House Prices for the state of Wisconsin, Dane County, and Rock County. These stats include Janesville and Madison. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions pertaining to these figures. This month showed a decrease in the number of home sales statewide and in Dane County, but a solid increase in home prices! Rock County remains one of the better recovery stories with significant increases again in both median price and the number of home sales in August!
