Greater Lake Geneva Area - The following is a breakdown of the housing market Nationally, Statewide, and in our Local Area, collected from reputable sources for last month, February 2022.

February 2021 Housing Market

Featured

The silver lining around the past years’ pandemonium has to be the renewed importance of “home.” Clearly, a house is much more than plywood and nails. As more jobs go remote and kids attend school virtually, the more crucial it is to love where you live. If home is where the heart is: have you found yours?

January 2021 Housing Market

Featured

Southeastern Wisconsin's residential real estate market generally cools down with the temperature. Winter months are often marked by decreased buyer activity, as well as fewer homes entering and leaving the market, as new listings and sold homes, respectively. This winter, however, buyer demand and activity have remained high. While inventory decreased in January 2021, both sales and sales prices were up - Nationally, Regionally and Locally.

November 2020 Housing Market

Featured

November 2020 Housing Market: With the holiday season upon us, we have finally seen a very slight slow down in the housing market, ending last months' record-breaking five consecutive month-over-month gains. That being said, compared to last year, we're still on fire, in my opinion. Let's take a look at the November 2020 market, starting Nationally and narrowing our way down to our hyper-local market.

September 2020 Housing Market

September 2020 Housing Market: My message to all is to stay in tune with this evolving market. More jobs are going remote than ever before, which means more city-folk are moving country-side. This means competition and higher housing prices.

August 2020 Housing Market Update

Featured

Overall, it has been one heck of a summer. Personally, I have experienced incredibly high buyer demand and frustratingly low inventory. This has resulted in many more offers written compared to offers accepted.

June 2020 Housing Market

Featured

Here in Wisconsin, the month of June represents carefree summertime livin': grilled food, festivals, long holiday weekends, and plenty of sunshine. June 2020, however, was marked by civil rights protests against police brutality, violence, job loss, business closures, and month FOUR of this COVID-19 plague. During difficult times, I hold on by committing myself to find the silver lining. More than ever, having a home to stay in, for safety's sake, is of the utmost importance.

Able buyers: get your ducks in a row sooner rather than later. When the right home comes onto the market, you will need to act fast. Potential sellers: do not miss this opportunity. We do not know how long the odds will stay in your favor.
