Rock County housing market ends year strong
The future may be a little brighter for the Rock County housing market.
Rock-Green Realtors Association President Paula Carrier says the 4th quarter sales numbers for single family homes were up about 23% in 2009 compared to 2008, and sales prices were also up almost 5%. She's especially pleased with the increase in sales prices, because of the large number of foreclosure and short sale properties. December sales numbers are even better. They are up almost 10% from the previous year.
Carrier does admit sales of other types of properties continue to be flat.
