As I'm sure many of you know, the Madison WI real estate market is still going strong, despite the bitter cold! According to Property Trax, active listing inventory in Dane County hasn't been this low since 2006 (when comparing inventory on the 31st day of December, from 2006-2013):
Since we've been talking to a lot of home sellers on the near west side of Madison lately, I decided to pull a few quick numbers to share with them. The data is encouraging, and based on my experience, I assume this trend does not stop at the borders of the near west side. It's exciting to see the numbers holding strong, during what's known to be the slowest season in the year.
Accepted Offers since Jan. 1st= 15 and counting

Months supply of inventory continues to dwindle in January, and is down to 2.46 , meaning it's still a seller's market. Months of inventory= # of homes currently active divided by the number of homes selling each month, based on a 12 month average.
