Welcome-to-Wisconsin-300x225.jpg?width=300The 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.

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 Dane & Rock County's home prices increased significantly. On a year over year basis, Dane County home prices were up 3.7% and Rock County prices are up 13.8%!

We understand that defaulting on your mortgage can be a stressful and difficult situation.  We have counseled many individuals and families in similar situations.   Our team is here to help! We have discovered that many homeowners in this situation don’t realize that they have other options instead of foreclosure.  One of the best options to avoid foreclosure and save your credit is a short sale.

A short sale, is when the amount owed to the lenders is more than what the home can be sold for.  In a short sale, we list the property, and then negotiate with the bank to accept less than the full amount to satisfy the debt,  allowing it to be paid off “short”.
