The Mad City Dream Homes mobile search app is the best app around for searching Madison area listings on the go. We've put a lot of thought into the design, which includes some great features you won't find anywhere else. Download our free app using the links below, and read on for a list of handy features.
Discover Which Nearby Listings Have Accepted Offers
Which listings are selling in your neighborhood? Our "nearby" feature provides answers by automatically displaying all listings within a one mile radius of your location. The color-coded display identifies for you which listings have accepted offers and which do not. To access this feature, select the nearby option on the home view of the app. Properties displayed in green do not have an accepted offer and are still available for sale.Properties displayed in blue are under contract and scheduled to close soon. Note, you can adjust your search radius by selecting the distance button at the bottom of the app.
Draw your Own Search Area
Another handy feature is our polygon search that allows you to draw your own search territory. Select the new search button on the home view of the app. Then zoom into your preferred location and select the polygon option from the draw menu in the lower left corner of the app.
Next, draw the outline of your target location with your finger and select the search icon in the upper right corner to load the results. Once again, listings highlighted in green do not have an accepted offer and are still available for sale. Listings highlighted in blue are under contract and scheduled to close soon.
Search by Radius
Radius search works a lot like our polygon search tool. Select the new search button on the home view of the app. Then zoom into your preferred location and select the radius option from the draw menu in the lower left corner of the app.
Next, draw the radius of your search location with your finger and select the search icon in the upper right corner to load the listings. Properties highlighted in green do not have an accepted offer and are still available for sale. Properties highlighted in blue are under contract and scheduled to close soon.
Exclude Accepted Offers from Search Results
This is easy to do with our app. Go to the search settings view within the app. Then select the accepted offers search setting. Next, select exclude offer show/offer bump and refine search. This setting will automatically exclude all listings with an accepted offer from your search results.
Search by School District
This is one of our most popular search features. Go to the search settings view within the app. Then select the school district search setting. Next, start typing the name of your preferred school district and the app will find your district for you.
Search Open Houses
Another very popular feature. Simply select the open house search filter and then specify a date range with a from and to date.

This feature works for both single family homes and condos. For example, the selection below identifies single family homes with garages for 3 or more cars, as well as condos with parking for 3 or more cars.
Location Search Box
At the top of the app is a location search filter. Use this to search by city, MLS area, neighborhood, street, or zip code.
