State home sales set record in 2016
0 0

It was a record year in 2016 for the housing market in the state.

Sales rose by just over six percent. The total number of closings was the highest, since the Wisconsin Realtors Association changed the way it tracks sales 12 years ago.

David Clark is an economist for the group. He says there aren't as many homes for sale, especially in urban areas. And Clark says that drove up prices.

The statewide median price was up nearly six percent last year, to $165;000. It wasn't that high in the northeast region. The figure was $140,000, and that's up almost four percent.

The region had a bigger increase in sales for the year, at almost seven percent.
