What's the story with inventory? (updated for April, 2023)

Posted by Dan Miller, REALTOR on Tuesday, April 11th, 2023 at 5:10am.

Here's how Dane County single family home inventory is trending:

Available listings are up year-over-year, which is a result of fewer people buying in 2023. It's important to note that inventory is still very low from an historical perspective, and we're expecting supply to remain low and prices to remain strong for the foreseeable future. Right now there are only .8 months of inventory available in all of Dane County.

And here's the trend for condominiums:

There are actually fewer available condos for sale right now than there were a year. One of the big reasons for low condo supply is that very few new construction condos have been built over the last 15 years. Right now, we have only .6 months of condo supply available across the whole county.
