Freakfest 2007

I am a realtor that not only loves selling homes in the Madison area, but also loves living here.  I therefore am always looking for great events that showcase some of the fun in our community.  One that is coming up this weekend is especially fitting in light of the nearby Halloween holiday.  Freakfest 2007 is sure to be a great time. It is being held on State St. and will feature 3 stages of live music.  The party will go on from 7:30 PM to 1:30 AM with very reasonable ticket pricing.  I’ve attached the link with all the event details.  So grab your costume and head on down to State St. for the annual Freakfest.  Be Safe and Happy Halloween!!!!

2007, Fifth Highest Year on Record for Existing Home Sales

Although the real estate market has been slowing over the last 2 years, it is very important to note that 2007 will still be the fifth highest year on record for existing home sales. The National Association of Realtors has recently released reports providing evidence that people are still buying homes at historical levels and that the favorable mortgage rates are still in play for prospective home buyers. One out of every 16 American households will buy a home this year, with the expected total of existing home sales to be around 5.78 million for the year. This is compared to 6.48 million total sales in 2006, which is believed to be an unsustainable level by experts. With greater inventory levels, and more reaction time in the absence of bidding wars and panic among buyers, now is an ideal time to consider homeownership in the Madison and Middleton areas.
