Dane County condo sales

Madison area condo sales were down compared to each of the last two years, but were still high from an historical context, registering the 6th highest total on record. Keep in mind, the market last fall was unusually strong due to the arrival of the pandemic in the spring. Also, sales would be much higher right now if more condos were available for sale. A lack of fresh supply is limiting the number of sales in the year's market.

Accepted offers

Accepted offers decreased from last November, but were still very strong from an historical perspective. Contract signings came in at the fourth highest on record for the month.

New condo listings

The number of new Dane County condo listings posted to the MLS was down by 9% from last November, and was low by historical standards, too. A low supply of incoming listings is setting the stage for a very competitive condo market in the year ahead.

More about condo inventory

Only 119 condo listings and .7 months of supply were available for sale on the MLS as of December 10th -- both of which are clear indicators of a tight condo market in Dane County. More than 52% of all condo listings are under contract with an accepted offer, which is another indicator of a very competitive market.

Get ready for another competitive condo market in 2022. 

Even though we are in the midst of the holiday season, which is typically the slowest time for real estate in Dane County, our local condo market is unusually active for this time of year. Even so, the market will become much more competitive on the other side of the holidays when many more buyers begin their search.
