What's the frequency, Kenneth?

What's the frequency, Kenneth?You may or may not like the song or even the band (seriously though, who doesn't like R.E.M.?), but we're sure you're gonna love our new MLS data feed!

Starting today, instead of new property listings hitting our site every 24 hours, they're going to hit our site every three hours. That's right, LakeandCityHomes.com now receives data (new listings, photos, price updates, etc) from the South Central WI MLS every three hours rather than once a day! How do you like that frequency?!

Why is that important, you might be asking yourself? Simply put, if you're looking to buy a property in a popular neighborhood or sought-after area, you're going to have some stiff competition, even in a buyer's market. But now that the listings on our website are updated every three hours instead of every 24 hours, you'll receive email listing alerts more frequently whenever a property matching your criteria goes on the market. This is true for ALL your Saved Searches on LakeandCityHomes.com and you can create as many Saved Searches as you want. This is also true for over a hundred search snippets (ie pre-defined searches) that we've set up on our home page like our New Madison Listings page, Lake Mendota Homes page or our Luxury Homes & Estates page.

How do more frequent updates help in a buyer's market? Regardless of market conditions, the best properties go off the market the most quickly. What constitutes the "best" properties? Well, for starters, properties that are well-priced given their current condition and location. So, not only do you get a competitive advantage when you receive listing alerts from LakeandCityHomes.com more frequently, you also get the best representation available in the Madison WI real estate market at no cost to you. We'll negotiate hard on your behalf, keep you informed of what's happening at all times, and fight to put your interests above the interests of all other parties involved in the transaction.

So if you're looking to purchase Madison WI real estate and want every advantage you can get, please call or email us at (563) BUY-SOLD (563-289-7653). We'll be happy to provide you with more information about our new data feed, the benefits of buyer agency, and to schedule a no-obligation consultation to discuss how we can help you achieve your real estate goals!

The last concert REM did in Madison before they "retired" was in 1984.....MU Social/Theatre had contracted with them to do a show....a few of my students and I took Michael Stipes shopping on State Street, which he loved by the way! It was a fun afternoon. He bought a Wisconsin hat! It was a great show, and I also got to see them in Phoenix when they re-surfaced (think it was the summer of 1991 or '92?) Also had my hair cut by Annie Lennox when she and Dave Stuart (or is it Stewart?) were here...ahhh, the old stories I have!
