Home sales down in Wisconsin for MarchSubmitted: 04/23/2014
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.
