The Homes on Femrite are true New Urbanism. In the heart of Monona, 10 minutes from downtown Madison and across from Aldo Leopold Nature Center, the location is incredible. The neighborhood is very peaceful with mature trees yet close to everything. It is the best value in urban living in Dane County this year. There is an open house this Sunday from 12-3...take a look at these upscale urban homes.

Previous comments have left out some crucial information. In the hottest real estate market in years, with desirable listings getting multiple over-asking-price offers, nobody has mentioned that the emperor is naked.

On the market since August, 2012 with nearly 10% in price reductions, NOBODY has actually bought one of these houses. They are situated on teeny tiny lots with minimum setbacks, clash with the existing houses and are just off a very busy street, across from a large condo project on a steep hill.

Why would I want to be the first to jump into that pool?

Really strains the credibility of all realtors when the ONLY thing any and all of them say is "It is a great place to live, I am on commission".

Location and neighborhood are very important considerations when buying a home. These are very nice homes and the neighborhoods have a lot to offer. What interested you in these homes and/or neighborhood? What's most important is what is relevant to you. A home may look great in the online photos, but does the neighborhood meet your needs and it is the best choice for your lifestyle? If you're relocating to Madison, my clients have found a neighborhood tour to be very helpful to making their move a positive experience. It takes a couple of hours and will get you up to speed quickly on the options available that fit your needs. I would find an agent who knows the area well and do this. I was born and raised here. Four generations of my family have lived here. So, I know the area very well and can work with you to assess your needs and provide you with a short list of the best options. There's no obligation and it's a good chance to get acquainted.

I've been in both these units and they are very nice. The one on the corner has a bit more natural light and privacy. Walking distance to parks, nature, coffee shops and Monona Drive. Let me know if you'd like a viewing

Since every buyer is looking for different things in a neighborhood, there are some great websites to check out an area. City of Monona- (http://www.mymonona.com/). For the greater area: City of Madison- (wwwcityofmadison.com), Schools- (http://dpi.wi.gov/).

I think Monona is a very nice community. Of course, the best way to check it out is visit the area to see for yourself if its an area you would like to live.
