Success Stories
“In the summer of 2017, Tara and I decided to look for a cabin in Northern WI.  After talking with several realtors, we found Matt Albrecht with Woodland Realty.  I was comfortable with Matt from the start.  Matt listened to what we wanted, understood our financial range and didn't try to push us towards properties out of our price range.  Matt was straight forward, honest and respectful of our requests.  Since we live 4hrs away, Matt made time on weekends to show us properties.  In September we found our dream property on Nelson lake and Matt was there to help us through all the steps.    I would highly recommend using Matt and Woodland to help you find your new home/cabin or sell your property. They did a fantastic job.   Respectfully,   Brian & Tara Korfmacher Cottage Grove WI.”

Number of Affordable Homes For Sale Rises

Posted: August 21, 2017

Affordability is the number one concern of prospective home buyers. Sure, there are a lot of things on a buyer's mind when they begin looking for a home to purchase but things like the number of bedrooms in a house or the size of the kitchen don't really matter if you can't afford to buy it.

Well, according to new numbers from the National Association of Home Builders, during the first quarter of this year, the number of affordable homes available to buy rose from the end of last year. Specifically, 60.3 percent of new and existing homes sold were within the reach of a family earning the median U.S. income of $68,800. Robert Dietz, NAHB's chief economist, said there are a couple of reasons for the improvement. “Ongoing job growth continues to fuel demand for housing, while wage growth is helping to offset the effects of rising mortgage rates and keeping home prices affordable,” Dietz said.

Home prices, obviously, are a big part of this equation. And, though they've been on the rise for some time now, according to the report, they fell during the first quarter of 2017. In fact, the national median home price was $245,000, which is down from $250,000 at the end of last year.
