Sales of homes in the Northwoods continue to climb, but prices leveled off in July according to a Wisconsin Realtors Association monthly survey.
Economist David Clark says July homes sales in the 18-county northern region were up about 300 units from 2012, or 3,314 sold. Average price was $110,000, down about 2 percent from last year.
Clark says statewide sales were up 17 percent from a year ago and the median sales prices were up about 9 percent. He says July is one of the prime home buying times in Wisconsin.
