Dane County Housing Market

Housing market statistics for Dane County, Wisconsin.
March home sales in Dane County continue to surge due to record low mortgage interest rates and an inventory shortage. Dane County's median home price was $350,000 in March, which was up 16.67% from last March.

This chart shows increased median home values, month over month, for the previous 5 years. Dane County is showing super strong levels of appreciation with continued growth year over year too.

Dane County had 598 homes sold in March which was down from total homes sold last March of 619. Though a 3.4% decline indicates less sales, it's only due to less inventory as demand far exceeds availability.

As buyers continue to battle over limited listings in Dane County, home prices continue to soar. Median home prices went from $316,500 in January, $334,900 in February to $350,000 in March. We fully expect the demand to exceed the availability of homes the entire year. Which will result in rising prices throughout. The 30 y ...

April Home Maintenance Checklist

Fill holes in lawn and plant grass seed
Get a bag or two of clean dirt and some lawn seed. You can use a shovel or rake but most of this can be done by hand. Fill any low spots or holes with dirt then sprinkle some seed over the top. Consider adding some dirt over the top to prevent the seed from blowing away and water slightly to dampen the area.
Tune up lawn mower
Typically cost around $100 when done by a professional. New plugs, air filter, oil change and sharpen the blade. Regular mower maintenance ensures a longer life.
Pest Control Prevention
April means that the bugs are back. Spraying plants and trees will prevent invasive insects. 
Change HVAC Filter
Changing your HVAC filter before using your air conditioning is important. Using a dirty filter can cause increased energy cost. Plus a clean filter better filters pollen, pet dander, small particles and dust that you breathe. 
Clean and Repair Gutters and Downspouts
Cleaning and repairing gutters and downspou ...
