It is always nice to make a "best" list.  Even better, a "best real estate" list when your job is selling real estate.  WalletPop/ started the new year by publishing a "Top ten places to buy a home in 2011" list and Madison, Wisconsin made it as the best college town. Madison is ideally located between 2 lakes, is home to the state capital and a top-ranking Big 10 university.  Affordable housing, plentiful shopping and dining and friendly atmosphere add to its charm.  Madison’s population is listed as 562,000 with a median home price of $199,000. 

So, it’s a great place to buy a home but what is available?  There’s a wide variety at great prices and lower mortgage interest rates make buying right now really attractive. currently shows 957 single family homes for sale in Madison, 808 condominiums, 158 multi-family opportunities, 119 vacant land parcels and 74 business opportunties.  To search using your price range, please see where you can also search for SOLD property data in Dane County

Madison has made a ton of lists. One of First Weber’s owners and Madison resident Dan Lee goes into some of the many lists and great things about living in Madison in this earlier post: Madison: The best there is?
