2017 Verona Summer Home Sales Statistics

Home sales in Verona have been strong through the summer, up 29% over last summer. This is interesting; considering the number of sales in Dane county is actually down compared to last year.

Verona Home Sales Statistics – July 2016

In July Verona single family home sales continued to be strong. The average home sold was up 13% over last July.

In April 18 home sales closed in Verona. As crazy as the market is, that’s not an astounding number. I think that is mostly a result of the low 3 months’ worth of inventory though. Buyers just can’t find what they want for a price they are willing to pay. All the other statistics and Read More
