Home Sales Rebound in May
Up 3.2% in May after several months of decline.
Wisconsin home sales rose in May, following several months of declines.
Economist David Clark of Marquette University said while supply continues to hamper sales, new listings in May were only down slightly from the previous year.
“If we continue to see new listings at or near where they were last year, or even higher than last year, that ought to help with sales, and it should help to moderate, at least slightly, the median prices,” he said.
High demand and limited inventory pushed Wisconsin’s median home price up 9.1 percent in May to $203,000.
Sales for all of 2019 still trail last year by about 4 percent.
