Reviewing a year in real estate is like flipping through a yearbook; each page offers a different snapshot of what shaped the market. Sometimes, you’ll find class clowns who surprised everyone with a sudden uptick in value, or the perennial overachievers like waterfront properties that never seem to lose their charm. In this post, we’ll examine what the past year has been like for the Green Bay, Wisconsin real estate market. We’ll analyze the highs, the lows, and what you can anticipate in the coming months.

Market Trends: The Honor Roll Students
Certain trends consistently stay at the top of the charts, similar to honor roll students who consistently excel year after year. This year, we noticed:
- Strong Seller’s Market: Low inventory and high demand have led to an increase in property prices.
- Increase in Suburban Interest: With remote work becoming more mainstream, buyers are gravitating toward spacious homes.
Unexpected Movers: The Class Clowns
Now, let’s talk about the unexpected trends—think of these as the class clowns who one day decide to win the science fair.
- Vacation Rentals: As travel restrictions eased, vacation rentals around Green Bay started fetching attractive ROIs.
- Investment in Smaller Units: Surprisingly, smaller, more affordable homes have seen an uptick in investment interest.
Property Types: The Different Social Circles
Just as high school has its jocks, nerds, and artists, the Green Bay real estate market also offers a variety of property types:
- Single-Family Homes: Always popular, the backbone of any real estate market.
- Condos: Ideal for those looking for a lower-maintenance lifestyle.
- Commercial Properties: For investors, commercial spaces have shown slow but steady growth.
Seasonal Impact: The School Year vs. Summer Vacation
Real estate has its seasons too. Spring and summer are like the Friday and Saturday of the real estate week—a lot more happens.
- Spring Uptick: Families time their moves to coincide with the end of the school year.
- Fall Slowdown: Similar to Sunday evenings when homework is due, the market slows down a bit as we approach winter.
