Rock county homes sales are up
The Rock-Green Realtors Association President says she's ecstatic over the latest home sales figures from the state association.
Paula Carrier says after seeing a slide since the fall of 2007, this gives her a real boost in thinking the worst is over. The Wisconsin Realtors Association reports Rock County existing home sales are up 6.1% compared to a year ago. Carrier says part of the reason is a federal first time home buyer program. Sale prices are down 6.3%, but Carrier says part of the reason is a high number of foreclosures.
She says these numbers may indicate the economy is beginning to recover.
