MLS listings

New listings continue to enter the market at a slow pace, which is one of the reasons why condo prices continue to rise in Dane County. Only 177 condominiums were listed for sale in April -- one of the lowest totals on record for the month. New listings decreased by 6% year-over-year and by 8% year-to-date.

Months of supply and available listings

As of May 13th, only 100 condos were available for sale (without an accepted offer) in Dane County. This is the equivalent of .7 months of supply. Note the months of supply are especially low for condos priced under $300,000 -- indicating a very tight market for the most affordably priced condos.
