Real Estate Inventory

Inventory in Dane County remains tight, favoring sellers, but has increased slightly over this time last year. There were 359 new homes added to our market’s available inventory over the past month, but 581 homes sold. This resulted in the one-month drop seen in available inventory from October to last month.

Slower Sales Pace in November

Home sales for the month of November maintained the slower pace that we expect from our fall market, but are up ever so slightly from last month. There were 359 new homes listed for sale over the last 30 days. Of those new homes listed, 161 of them were 3 bedroom single family homes – typically the most sought after homes in our market. The average days on market for a sold home is 48, so homes are still moving relatively quickly.

HaPpY tHaNkSgIvInG!

Thanksgiving 2019 is just around the corner. As usual this time of year, I reflect on all that I have to be grateful for. At the top of the list is YOU! I appreciate you for your friendship, conversations and for many of you, the trust you gave me to help you through the buying or selling process. Of course, there are other things I am also grateful for this year. Here are a few in no particular order:

1.      A need for nothing
2.      A safe place to call home
3.      Health
4.      Acts of kindness
5.      Courteous drivers
6.      The change of seasons
7.      Friends and family who are nonjudgmental
8.      Smiles from strangers

Wishing you a happy and healthy Thanksgiving!

A large kitchen with SS appliances, granite and crisp white cabinetry.  It is the perfect house for entertaining family & friends with a large deck overlooking a spectacular and private garden that backs to walking paths and green space.

September 2019 Home Sales

The  early snowfall has put a bit of a damper on the Real Estate market in Madison.  Buyers are still out, but at a much slower rate than is typical for this time of year.  The weather really does have an impact on the market!  However, overall, the market was healthy this fall.  While inventory still lags a bit, houses are still selling!  Here's what sold on the west side on Madison in September.
