For buyers in and around Dane County who are having difficulty finding a home due to the inventory shortages it may be hard to imagine more that some markets 'worse'.  According to, in America's Hottest Real Estate Markets for February 2017 the markets with the greatest are:

  • Vallejo, CA
  • San Francisco, CA
  • Dallas, TX
  • Denver, CO
  • San Jose, CA

For Wisconsinites the strongest markets around were Detroit, MI (Rank #13) and Columbus, OH (Rank #16).  Home prices across the nation continue to rise and the average listing was $250,000.  This is up 9% from the same time last year.  The market is hot, but their is one thing we can guarantee at The Reuter Team and that is the market is not going to be changing anytime soon.  We expect that the housing shortages we see in Dane County are going to continue through the end of 2017 and into 2018.  Home prices will continue to rise and buyers will find themselves in more bidding wars.  Our buyers have and will always have the advantage of finding home through our Home Scouting App. With Home Scouting our buyers get the most accurate and up to date information available.  Our technology filters homes with accepted offers so buyers spend hours looking at homes that are not available.   To download the Home Scouting App all you have to do it go to the Google Play or Apple Store, and search Home Scouting MLS.  Once downloaded and you register as a new user it will prompt you for a VIP Code.  The magic word that gets you in is Badgers.
