For the second straight year, Livability has named the city of Madison as the #1 place to live in America. No doubt, Madison's reputation for being a great place to live, work and recreate is spreading far and wide.
Which lead us to 4 important questions
#1: In this age of worker mobility, how many people from across the country are viewing the Livability rankings right now and considering a move to Madison?
#2: How many retirees, who could choose to live anywhere, are putting Dane County at the top of their list?
#3: And how many out-of-state investors, who are flush with cash, are wondering how they, too, can get in on the action?
#4: And last, when it comes to climate change, how many people from the west and southwestern parts of the country are looking for a place just like Madison that offers relief from heat, wildfires, and drought?
The upside and the downside of popularity
The upside from a real estate perspective is that Madison and Dane County will continue to be excellent choices for owning property and building wealth -- for those who have the means to buy in. The downside is that rising prices have created a barrier to homeownership for many in our community.
Making homeownership more accessible
At Mad City Dream Homes, we want you to know we're dedicated to helping as many people as we can experience the gift of homeownership. We're actively contributing our time, talents, and financial resources to several homeownership initiatives. And we're helping dozens of first-time buyers become homeowners each year.
Would you like to get involved with a local homeownership group?
There are so many ways to contribute, and several organizations that need more help, so we encourage you to please reach out to us for a conversation. We'd love to learn more about your talents and your interests, and help you connect with an organization that's making an impact.
We also have a hunch to share with you, and it is this: When you help others improve their lives through homeownership, we believe you will improve your life, too. A lofty statement perhaps, but one that is based on experience and grounded in truth.
We would love to hear from you.
Your friends at Mad City Dream Homes
