home sales

The Greater Milwaukee Association of Realtors has released its July report on home sales for the four-county area, which includes Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Washington and Waukesha counties.

The report says 2,199 homes were sold in July, a 12.1 percent increase over July of 2014. Last month was the six month of positive sales, and the fifth month of double-digit sales.

The association says “buyers are out in force,” while sellers “are pricing their homes correctly,” resulting in a balanced market, in which neither the buyer nor the seller dictates a home’s price.

There is increased movement in the local housing market. While mortgage rates tick upward, more homes are selling in Wisconsin.
