Wisconsin’s housing market continued to improve in April.
A new report from the Wisconsin Realtors Association shows there was a 17 percent jump in existing home sales in April, compared to the same month in 2014. The group said 6,355 homes were sold last month, up from just over 5,400 last year.
The WRA says sellers also saw a nice increase in the prices homes were selling for, with a median of $154,900. The figure is up almost 11 percent from April of last year.
WRA economist Dave Clark says it was a strong month for sales, which is a good sign as the housing market moves into its busiest months of the year.
