MILWAUKEE (AP) - A new reports show home sales in Wisconsin for the first half of the year are the best they’ve been since 2005.

The Wisconsin Realtors Association says sales of existing homes are up 5.5 percent from the same period last year. The median price of a home rose 4.5 percent to $162,000.

Association chairman K.C. Maurer says homes are moving quickly. He says the average time on the market fell to 86 days in June. The last time the days on the market were that low was August 2005.

The association’s report says every region of the state experienced a growth in sales compared to the same period in 2015.
