Real estate broker and blogger Eric Rojas recently took a look at the sales pace of Wilmette homes in the first half of this year, found a substantial increase over last year, and the possibility of home sales having their best year since 2007.

The home pictured above, from Highgate Builders, is under construction on Marion Ln, just east of Locust Rd in Wilmette.
