“We actually set a new sales record for February.” That is a direct quote from Jean Stefaniak, the WRA (Wisconsin Realtors Association) chairman. That’s BIG news in my opinion! People always say to me that no one sells their home in the winter months – this just shows, that yes, YES they do!
Across the Wisconsin state the sales of existing homes were up in February despite increased prices and the cold winter weather. For February, home sales rose 1.2% compared to the same month last year in 2018. Although February typically counts for 5.1% of the annual sales volume – if you break that down by 12 months a year… that’s pretty good for “no houses selling.”
What this also tells me is that this 2019 year will be another great (read: busy) year. Mortgage rates are still low and there are still LOTS of home buyers out there. Competition does get more fierce in the spring and summer months – do you have an awesome Realtor working on your behalf?!
