Home sales in the state were up 19 percent last month compared to November of last year.
Economist David Clark of the Wisconsin Realtors Association says that's after sales were flat in October. He says maybe some closings were delayed until November.
Clark says the looming increases in federal interest rates likely pushed some buyers into the market.
The statewide median price rose over eight percent to $162,000.
The market was even stronger in the northeast region. Sales jumped by almost 28 percent. The median price was up 8-1/2 percent, to $141,000.
