Spring market conditions continue to be very favorable for sellers as prices continue to rise throughout the Madison area. Here's our latest single family home update, covering the month of April, 2023.

New MLS listings

A limited supply of new listings is the biggest reason why prices keep rising in the Madison area. New MLS listings were down 30% in April and by 25% year-to-date.

Active listings

Although active listings (those without an accepted offer) have risen slightly year-over-year, they still remain very low from an historical perspective.

Looking ahead

Many people are waiting for prices to fall before they jump into the market, and prices are beginning to decrease in some parts of the country. But we don't see prices falling in the Madison area anytime soon. There are just too many factors at play that suggest more price appreciation in the year ahead.
