Heavy Competition for Madison Area Real Estate

Posted by Dan Miller, REALTOR on Thursday, February 2nd, 2017 at 6:54am.

It's only February 1st but it's already beginning to feel like a Spring market. So far this year 4 of our transactions have involved cash offers. One of our listing clients just received 4 cash offers - all of them for above the list price. 

Single family homes are in short supply, and buyers are adjusting their tactics accordingly. Here's a quick overview of the competitive real estate market in Dane County.  

Madison Single Family Homes

The real estate market in Madison is hot under $400,000. Overall there are only 1.1 months of inventory available for sale. Almost one-third of all single family home listings have an accepted offer (a high percentage for this time of year).

Fitchburg Single Family Homes

The Fitchburg real estate market is especially hot under $350,000. As of this post there are only 6 single family home listings under $350k in Fitchburg which don't yet have an accepted offer. 

Middleton Single Family Homes

The Middleton real estate market is very hot under $400k. Over 50% of the listings in this price range are under contract and scheduled to close soon. 


Verona Single Family Homes

The Verona real estate market is very competitive under $350,000. Only 2.4 months of single family home inventory are available for sale in the entire city.
