2017 Wisconsin Housing Statistics

Median sale price increased in Rock County in 2017 for the 6th consecutive year climbing from $90,000 in 2011 to $140,000 in 2017. Sales estimates for the state are provided by the National Association of REALTORS®, which seasonally adjusts quarterly sales figures. All county figures on sales volume and median prices are compiled by the WRA and are not seasonally adjusted. Median prices are only computed if the county recorded at least 10 home sales in the quarter. Beginning in 2010, all historical sales volume and median price data at the county level have been re-benchmarked using the Techmark system, which accesses MLS data directly and in real time.

Wisconsin Housing Market Sizzles

Wisconsin’s housing market is having its best year in more than a decade. While rates remain low, demand remains high.

According to the Wisconsin Realtors Association, September sales climbed 6.9% from September of 2015, while the median price increased 7.9%.

“Home sales are the highest we’ve seen in more than 10 years,”said Erik Sjowall, chairman of the Wisconsin Realtors Association Board. “Whether you look at the month of September, the third quarter or year-to-date, home sales are at the highest levels since at least 2004.”

With interest rates near record lows, it’s hard to tell when rates could climb again. With demand high and supply relatively low, now could be the perfect time to consider selling your home.

Clear the Clutter and Sell Your House

14 ways you can make your house show better

You don’t have to be a minimalist when it comes to your decor but if you want to sell your home, your chances improve greatly if you get rid of the clutter.
While curb appeal speaks volumes, once potential buyers enter your house, you want them to be able to picture themselves in it. And they can’t do that if your stuff is spilling out all over the place. Clutter is confusion to prospective buyers and that puts you at a disadvantage right away.
How-to-de-clutter-your-home-room-by-roomIf you’re living in a cluttered home, you may not be able to see disarray. You see sentimental memories of your beloved grandparents, or knick-knacks from a great vacation; the buyer, on the other hand, sees chaos. They can’t separate the house from the clutter and in a market where there are more homes than buyers, you need every advantage you can get.
Even if your house is clean, having stuff crammed in every nook and cranny is visually unappealing. What to do? Well, you don’t need to hire a stager, at least not initially, but you should consider renting a storage space and clear everything out. Make the house neutral. Make it possible for buyers to mentally move their own belongings in.
