Home sales down in Wisconsin for MarchSubmitted: 04/23/2014
Home sales down in Wisconsin for March
Story By Associated Press

MADISON - Home sales in Wisconsin fell 11 percent in March compared to the same period a year ago.

The chilly winter might be part of the reason.

The Wisconsin Realtors Association says the spring selling season got off to a slow start.

Things might improve along with the weather.

The association says median sales prices rose 2 percent to 136-thousand dollars.

The first three months of the year are normally slow for home sales.

But Sales in the second quarter tend to be much stronger.

Real estate agents say better weather helps home sales because more buyers come out.

The weather also helps landscaping looks better, making the entire home more appealing.

RHINELANDER - A snow storm caught Hanson's Garden Village in Rhinelander off guard last weekend and collapsed a greenhouse. Now that spring weather is here, Hanson's is ready to move forward by making some adjustments.
"We got by for 25 years doing what we were doing," said Hanson's Garden Village Co-owner Brent Hanson.
Last weekend's spring snow storm set back Hanson's.
"We thought we were ahead of schedule having that greenhouse nice and filled," said Hanson's Manager Beth Hanson. 

"One bad storm and there you go. Things happen," said Brent.
The storm collapsed a greenhouse holding thousands of plants.
"For years we've gotten by with these lighter cheaper green houses," said Brent.
"We'll be down a greenhouse for a little bit here," said Beth.
Now Hanson's will only use sturdier and solid greenhouses so that collapses don't become a pattern.
