While portions of Wisconsin are seeing robust growth in home sales and prices, northern Wisconsin lags behind.
Still, an economist says things are improving.
The Wisconsin Realtors Association recent report found statewide, the median price up 7 percent from 2012 and sales up 10 percent from a year earlier. In the north, sales were up 5 percent, but prices were up just under two percent. Many southern and western Wisconsin counties had double-digit growth in both columns.
