Madison area single family home listings started the year roughly 25% lower than the listing totals from the last several years. But now that our June numbers are in, we're beginning to see signs that more homeowners are deciding to sell as our society opens up with the vaccine roll-out.

We believe this may be a sign of more homes hitting the market in the months ahead.
