As you may know, I recently toured all of the available homes in The Community of Bishops Bay, then I told you all about that exciting new development here and shared a video interview with one of the residents. As a lover of charming old houses, I was a little surprised at how much I was digging so many of these brand spanking new homes! Their vintage, farmhouse charm was definitely speaking my language. I love the distressed wood, mismatch cabinetry & furnishings, painted cabinets, barn doors, beamed ceilings plus bead board & wood flooring on the ceiling??! So cool. These homes are a beautiful marriage of old and new; I think just about anyone will appreciate the design and decor. So what are you waiting for? Come get inspired!

The Rental Market is Hot!

Looking for The 16 Critical Questions Every Seller Needs To Ask When Hiring A Realtor? Click Here!

The Rental Market is HOT!

As the Madison real estate market has continued to heat up, so has the rental market. Local rents are soaring as vacancy rates remain well under the national average. This has prompted some homeowners to buy their next home now, while renting their current home out. If you’ve considered the same, you may want to run your holding costs & potential income through a Rental Analysis Spreadsheet to determine whether or not the numbers work. Since the value of income property is measured differently than single family, owner-occupied property, you’ll want to be sure you’re looking at the right data when determining whether or not your home works as a rental. Need the spreadsheet? Email us for a free copy!

Thinking about buying income property? You may be interested in checking out our Investment Property Comparison Guide, consisting of active & sold properties, which is used to compare properties via cap rate, GRM, & cash return. Ask us for a free copy.

The Greenbush & Mansion Hill/James Madison Park TIFs offer great opportunity to both buyers & sellers. These amazing incentives are offered by the City to assist buyers in the rehabilitation of 1-8 unit buildings that are currently being used as rentals. Buyers must owner-occupy to qualify.

Final thought: There are literally thousands of new apartments being built in Madison this year, so sooner or later the market will balance out, and rents will probably soften up a bit. No big deal if you know what to look for in your next investment, but if you’re new to the game, be sure you’re taking all of the facts into consideration (current & future neighborhood development, neighborhood market trends, etc.).

Listing a home? Net more with Roost Realty! We’ll market your home with style, vision and boundless energy. Looking to buy? Let us be your property matchmakers! We’ll get you in the community, lifestyle and home of your dreams – because we know a home is so much more than a house.

Wow! Sell NOW!

RoostRealtyLogoCircleToday’s inventory shortage and low rates (less than 4%) are driving prices up! Without many listings to choose from, competition is fierce. A strong listing strategy is more important than ever. Just because selling a home is easier today doesn’t mean you should rely on an internet listing and a yard sign to get the job done right. Powerful staging, marketing and negotiation skills are key to drumming up the very best offer and taking full advantage of this seller’s market.

Not selling? Help spread the word! If you know anyone who’s been contemplating a move, do them a favor and tell them inventory is low and demand is high. Now is the time!

Whether you are looking to sell, refinance or remodel, if you own a home, you should know what it’s worth. Call us for your free market analysis or check out www.roostinmadison.com/sellers.

For Sale: 1439 Rutledge St

1439 Rutledge St, 5 Things I Love About You:

  1. You are DONE. As in the move-in ready, gorgeous, no corners cut kind of done. As in the improvement list is pushing 30 bullet points kind of done. (See below for updates.)
  2. The fine attention to detail. From the lovingly restored front door to the Art Deco light fixtures; even the light switches and their covers scream vintage cool.
  3. Amazing location! While Rutledge Street is quiet, it’s just blocks from one of Madison’s hippest hotspots, the beloved Willy Street area. Need a break from it all? Just around the corner you’ll find yourself at one of many shoreside parks on beautiful Lake Monona.
  4. Your yard. It’s private, urban and, of course, thoughtfully landscaped. Love hosting? A fantastic new patio and deck (with built in storage benches) will make you the talk of the town.
  5. Your well designed mudroom. When it comes to old homes, it’s the little things we love!

Okay, I've got to cut myself off here. Honestly, I could go on and on. Interested? Come see this beautiful home in person at our open house on Saturday, March 28 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. You won’t be disappointed.

Homes like this don't come around often. This two-story, 3 bed/2 bath home lives large -- with a sizable kitchen, dining room and living room, and a bedroom and full bath all on the main floor, plus two more bedrooms and a second bath upstairs. The newer roof, siding, and windows will give you peace of mind, while the original maple floors, arched doorways, and solid wood doors add abundant charm and unique architectural detail.

Outside, the cozy, urban yard offers space for a patio or garden bed -- plus ample off-street parking, which can be hard to find on the Isthmus. This home offers easy access to all that makes near-east living so desirable -- live on the bicycle boulevard, within a short walk to the many restaurants, coffee shops, bars, Willy Street Coop, and other local businesses in the Tenney Lapham and Willy St/Marquette neighborhoods.

This location really has it all: Live near three of Madison's most exciting upcoming developments -- the 700 block of East Washington, the 800 block of East Washington, and Madison's own Central Park. Plus, a short bike ride gets you downtown and to the UW campus -- enjoy a stroll around the Capitol square for the Saturday farmer's market, or meet friends for a summertime beverage at the Memorial Union Terrace overlooking Lake Mendota.

If you're interested in a move-in ready home with all that Isthmus living has to offer, this is the home for you.
