It’s a Home-Sellers Market in Madison, WI

Ten years ago, when the real estate market crashed, it kept many people from wanting to buy a home. That situation is dramatically changing, and the market is now open for sellers. There are many home buyers, especially in Dane County, but the supply is low. If you’ve been considering selling a home, you might want to take the opportunity to get the most out of your investment.

Why Dane County Is a Seller’s Market

Madison, WI is a growing community and the inventory of available homes for sale has not kept pace with the demand. There are a number of reasons for this growing demand, including:

      1. Although many millennials rent, as they get older, they become more likely to buy a home and put down roots. This population is adding to the stock of homebuyers, while the inventory of available homes hasn’t increased.
      2. Lower mortgage rates have also helped fuel the market, because more people want to buy when interest rates are low.
      3. Rental rates have also been on the increase, and many people prefer to buy when renting costs more.
      4. Due to the recession of 2008, there has also been a slowdown in new home building in the Madison area. It is beginning to recover, but it’s not catching up at the rate needed to meet demand.
      5. For a number of years, foreclosures helped supply the market, but there are fewer of these houses available today.

According to the Wisconsin State Journal, median home prices are on the increase, not only in Dane County, but in 11 other counties in the south-central Wisconsin region. Essentially, high demand is pushing prices for new homes up. When presented well and priced to sell, many properties attract multiple buyers.
