Home sales were up a bit in January, in what is one of the slowest months of the year.
Economist David Clark of the Wisconsin Realtors Association says they rose by almost two percent statewide.
He says the available inventory is the lowest that he can remember, with about 29,400 available across the state. He says since they've been tracking the monthly figures, about eight years ago, he's never seen the total drop below 30,000.
The statewide median price was up over six percent to $158,000. In the northeast region, that figure spiked by nearly 12 percent, to $145,000.
Sales in the region were down by almost two percent though.
