It has been a good year for real estate in Dane County this year. Sales have increased 25% this year over the last year. Record low interest rates have helped to keep things moving along. Inventories have decreased and in some markets there is a shortage of homes. Over all prices have not increased and there is still a continual flow of bank owned inventory. Now is a great time to buy or invest. Most rental properties will easily cash flow. There has been a good stream of homes under $100,000 which would be good to purchase to rent and hold until the market picks up again as an investment. There is also plenty of opportunity to flip with returns as high as 50% possible. If you are looking to sell the odds of selling have increased greatly. Surrounding counties have also picked up.
