MILWAUKEE - Home sales in Wisconsin continue to rise.
The Wisconsin Realtors Association says May sales are up about 18 percent compared to the same month last year.
It's the 23rd consecutive month of growth.
Prices are up as well.
The median price last month was 144-thousand dollars.
That's up 4.3 percent from a year earlier.
The number of homes on the market has also increased.
New listings rose by about 16 percent statewide, compared to May 2012.
Marquette University economics professor David Clark says some home owners who had given up on selling are now trying again.
