Realtors say now is the time to get involved in the housing market.

In La Crosse Co., median home sale prices are up 10% and sales are up 20% compared to last year.

At the same time, buyer interest rates are still at historically low rates. And that's a pattern that has been ongoing for nearly the past two years.

"All indications are that we will continue in this trend, with the interest rates where they are now, it's a great time to buy, and sell," said former La Crosse Area Realtor's Association President Steve Lillestrand.

Lillestrand also said right now it's toughest for first time home buyers because fewer entry level homes are for sale.
