June Market Update      

As we cross the half way mark of the year, the housing market in South Central Wisconsin is staying strong.  The current housing market in Madison and surrounding communities remains a seller’s market.  A seller’s market exists when there is an inventory shortage (more buyers than sellers).  Home sales are currently up 5.5% percent from last year at this same time and home prices are up 5 to 7 percent across Dane County.  Many of our newly listed homes are getting offers, if not multiple offers within the first 24-36 hours.  We credit the current market conditions and The Reuter Team’s Marketing Plan.  Our marketing plan uses the most advanced technology available in real estate and gets our listings the maximum exposure.  For sellers you need to prepared for your home to receive an offer FAST!  We will help you develop a plan during your initial listing appointment. 

With many buyers fighting for newly listed homes you need to have the advantage.  We offer that advantage with the Home Scouting MLS AppHome Scouting is the most advanced home search tool available for consumers in the United States.  You may be asking, “What makes Home Scouting so advanced”?  Our mobile directly connects to the MLS.  Zillow, Trulia, Homes.com, and others use a 3rd party to receive their information.  By directly connecting to the MLS it makes the information you receive more accurate and up to date.  We also understand the frustration of searching for homes to only find out they are sold, have offers, or were never on the market.  Home Scouting only shows you homes that are currently on the market and that do not have offers.  With Home Scouting you can search in a variety of ways.  You can search by a specific school or school district, city, state, county, or search by GPS to find homes for sale near your current location.  You can save favorites, take notes, schedule showings, receive mortgage payment information and so much more!  The best part about Home Scouting is that your information is private and never sold to anyone.  No random people calling, no 3rd party call centers ever, we promise!    To download the free Home Scouting app all you have to do it search in the Google Play or Apple Store for Home Scouting.  Once the app is downloaded you will be asked to register as a new user and enter our access code (Badgers).  We challenge you to try it, you will not be disappointed.
