On Deck - Wednesday, July 21, 2021
WCBU's On Deck has everything you need to know to start your day for Wednesday, July 21, 2021. Our top story is about how the Peoria-area real estate market continues to perform at a record pace, with properties moving faster than ever.

Charlie Schlenker speaks with Housing Action policy director Bob Palmer, who says the central Illinois figures are better than the state average, but that's not saying much.
