Not a Boom, But Solid Home Sales in Area
Federal home buyer tax credits certainly have boosted home sales. But the credits are expired and homes are still moving, says State Bank Financial Senior VP in La Crosse, Wayne Oliver. Those sales happening for good reasons, he says. Among them: Value. Oliver says, when comparing quality rental prices to home prices and interest rates, people are making good choices in buying.
La Crosse tracks the rest of midwest in home sales, according to a new report; the region showing better growth in sales for May than the rest of the nation.
