WI home sales down (again) in May

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) --  Home sales in Wisconsin dropped for a fifth straight month in May.

Compared to the same month last year, home sales were down 6.9%, according to the Wisconsin Realtors Association.

That's about the same as the national number, 7%.

But, homes that are selling are commanding a better price.

Wisconsin's median price in may was $150,000, up 3.8% from May, 2013.

The head of the realty association's board of directors says the state economy appears to be improving and unemployment is lower, and that can affect home sales.
