Milwaukee WI Real Estate update. National July housing data released reveals that improving, but continued lack of newly listed homes on the market coupled with pent-up buyer demand is driving inventory to all time lows and is also steadily pushing prices higher. The total number of homes available for sale continue to be constrained in July. Hi, I’m Rich Barnes, owner, broker of Realty Experts in West Allis, Wisconsin, 53214. National inventory decrease 32.6% year over year, a faster rate of decline compared to 27.4% year over year drop in June. The amount of loss was 440,000 listings as compared to July of last year.

Milwaukee housing data shows, the absorption rate was up 1% from 2.01 to 2.03 months. Remember the absorption rate is the number of months of inventory we have, if no new listings hit the market.
