 2014 appears to mark the beginning of higher prices for homes in Brookfield in 2015 which leads to more money for sellers and not as many "deals" for buyers in the upcoming spring market.

Note:  "Median Sales Price" is the midpoint between the High price and the Low price and is not the same as the "Average Sales Price".  Since a few high prices or low prices can skew the "Average Price", the real estate industry places more credibility on the "Median Price" to indicate a specific area's home values within a specified timeframe.

All data is taken from MRED, Midwest Real Estate Data and was formerly known as the MLS, Multiple Listing Service.  It is the source of all real estate activity in our area.
