WISCONSIN - The home sales market just keeps getting better and better for sellers here in the state.

Sales last month were up more than 18% compared to January of last year.

The average price of a home also bumped 3.5% percent to $123,000.

The industry's recovery has been on a roll.

It's the 19th consecutive month home sales are up by a double-digit percentage mark.

We saw the most drastic growth here in Northern Wisconsin.

Sales spiked by more than 30% over last January.

Prices still have a long way to go to fully recover.

A median home sold for $156,000 at the housing peak in January 2007.

The Northwoods is still the least expensive place to buy a home.

Median sales are $95,000 dollars.

CRANDON - Former Crandon School Board President Brian Tupper has resigned from the board, effective early Tuesday morning.

The board voted Jeff Ackley Jr. as its new president and Glen Pfeifer as its vice president at a meeting Monday night. Within hours of not being re-elected president, Tupper submitted his resignation from the board.
