Wisconsin Realtor’s Association: January Home Sales Drop

(Madison) January was a slower month for home sales in Wisconsin. In its latest monthly sales report the Wisconsin Realtors Association found about 3,779 completed sales last month, down 8.9-percent from the previous January.  An ongoing drop in the number of homes for sale continues to hamper the Wisconsin real estate market. In Dodge County, there were 45 homes sales last month, down from the 58 reported one year prior. Continued high demand coupled with low inventory pushed the median price of a home in the state up by $6000, to $175-thousand dollars. In Dodge County, that number was at $156-thousand, an increase of about $800.
