It's going to be a beautiful autumn. Home sales and median prices both grew at a healthy pace in August, continuing the hot real estate market in Madison, according to the most recent housing report from the Wisconsin REALTORS® Association (WRA). Existing home sales were up 13.7 percent in August compared to last August, closing out a very strong summer for home sales and 26 straight months of sales growth. Home prices showed similar strength with the median price rising 6.3 percent in August. Median prices have been up 17 of the last 18 months.

For small-town charm with plenty of personality, it's tough to beat IRONMAN Wisconsin and its 45,000+ cheering fans lining the course this weekend around Madison, WI.
What is the Ironman?
It's a 2.4 mile swim with a 112 mile bike ride, followed by a 26.2 mile marathon... or what others might call "insanity."

In the market for a beautiful and cozy hideaway in one of the best locations in Madison?  I took a look at this great listing in Shorewood Hills yesterday. It has 4 bedrooms, 2 baths and a nice sized artist studio above a 3 car garage.  Let me know if you'd like to take a look.
