Hi Jay -- go Badgers! Planning on moving down here?

As an FYI - it is best to never buy through the listing agent of a property - as they are on the seller's side - so you'd get into a dual agency conflict of interest situation. Best to use an expert negotiator, and one who has no home showing biases - an Exclusive Buyer Broker (they and their companies never list property for sale - and are specialists - not generalists.) And a regular so-called "buyer agent" might push more of their own in-house listings on you - or their own listings. We never list (represent sellers) - so that we may be 100% on the buyer's side - 100% of the time. Buyers can trust our advice and representation, and be assured that there won't be any conflicts of interest, or have their information compromised by shared fax machines, file cabinets, overheard phone conversations, shared buyer feedback with listing agents, or in other ways. They also stand a much better chance of getting a lot better purchase price on their home, as well as loan savings. Have a nice day & On Wisconsin. ... more

I agree with Elvis that we are not there yet, and we won't know we were there until after we have passed it. That said, I think we may be closer to a bottom than many people think. Inventory is still high, but home sellers are starting to get more realistic about pricing and the sale prices are dropping. Loan servicers are also reacting quicker to short sale requests and this is helping to equalize the inventory.

The government has pumped a tremendous amount of money into housing and there is more to come. Lending guidelines are still tighter than they should be which is making it harder for some to qualify, but there are a lot of first time home buyers sitting on the side line waiting for the right time to jump in.
I think a lot more sellers will throw in the towel after the normal seasonal decline this winter, but I think we will see some pickup early next year.

The figures that are boiling out are that they are generally about from 8-12% below their peak values, depending on the price range,decor,updates,location and marketing done to sell the house. There has been some good housing news lately and I think the time to buy is within the next 6 months for best selection and pricing. We may see appreciation next year. ... more
