Home Inventories Remain Tight, but Sales Increase in August

Posted: 09.24.18

Eau Claire, WI - The temperatures remain warm, and the local real estate market is still hot. Inventories on homes for sale is still low, but sales were up in August of this year compared to 2017. “We’re still seeing low supply, but demand is still high and homes are selling quickly,” said RANWW Executive Vice President Brenda Barnhardt.

The most recent analysis of the existing home market by the Wisconsin REALTORS® Association showed that in the western region of the state, home sales were up 7.2% overall compared to August of last year. A 33.3% increase in Dunn County and a 29.4% increase in Jackson County aided in this growth. Our region had about 4.5 months of inventory last month, which is close to the state average of 4.9 months.

“Houses continue to sell quickly. Now is both a great time to put your house on the market and team up with a REALTOR® whether you are buying or selling,” Barnhardt added.
