District 15 single-family home values continue to be among the most affordable in the city, ranging from $206K on average in Hawthorne and Burke Heights to $251K in Eastmorland. The median single-family home value in Madison is now assessed at $299K. (D15 values in orange.)

2021 property assessment numbers were published last week. Assessed values are used to calculate property taxes for the city, county, and school districts. Property tax bills are calculated at the end of the year after each of the taxing authorities have approved their budget. You can find additional information on the 2021 assessments here.
