November, 2013 Homes Sales Down 8%

The decrease in regional sales was foreshadowed by a slowdown in foot traffic at open houses this fall.  This is not an unusual development however, because the market often sees a slowdown in sales as the fall seasons wears on.

October, 2013 Homes Sales Up 3.5%

There were a total of 1,386 homes sold in October, compared to 1,434 in September of 2012, according to the Greater Milwaukee Association of Realtors.

The 3.5% increase in regional sales may be a sign that the marketplace is settling into a more gradual sales pace.  A steady sales increase would point to a market with competitive pricing and neither buyers nor sellers dominating a transaction.
