It looks like the housing recovery’s starting to take hold in places that have previously been passed by — including a largely rural part of southeastern Wisconsin.

Home sales in Wisconsin’s Kenosha, Racine and Walworth counties are up 20 percent from a year ago in the first half of the year, outpacing the state’s average increase of 11.4 percent, Southern Lakes Newspapers reports.

Joe Busch, broker and president of Bear Realty’s Burlington office, tells the paper that it’s great to see the area making headway, since it’s lagged the rest of the state for much of the recovery. “It’s been a great summer. I hope it continues,” Busch said. Source: southernlakesnewspapers.com.
