Selling Your House?
Know Your Local Real Estate Market


Armed with a few important facts about your local real estate market, you will be prepared to make smart decisions about the sale of your house. The phrase All real estate is local accurately describes how to think about your individual circumstances. National trends in real estate do not necessarily reflect what is happening in your town, city, or region. Here are five local real estate factors you need to understand so your expectations for a home sale are realistic:

1. Know Your Market.
It is a seller's market when there are... Read More

National Home Sales Increase, Housing Inventory Dips


Now is a good time to buy a home or list your home for sale. The national housing market trends show an increase in home sales and a decrease in home inventory. National existing-home sales increased in September to the second-highest pace since February 2007. Interest rates are holding steady near 4 percent, and job growth—while modest in comparison with the first half of the year—is still strong. Rent prices have climbed to an eight-year high, making it less affordable... Read More

How to Make a Gorgeous Gallery Wall


Gallery walls are hugely popular, as people are turning away from traditional linear photo displays in their homes.

Enjoying the Season: Five Foolproof Holiday Stress Busters


Decorations, music, sumptuous meals, and gatherings with family and friends are all hallmarks of the holiday season. Unfortunately, stress also tends to go hand in hand with this time of year. While you can't control everything that happens during the holidays, you can make wise choices that will help you be a healthier and happier person during this special time of the year.

1. Be Realistic!
No matter how well you plan the holiday meal or how much you research your gift lists for family members, you will encounter some snags along the way. You burn a batch of cookies, or someone spills coffee in the living room. The toy you thought your child would love gets ignored. All these happenings are common events and they don't... Read More

Take Steps to Protect Yourself from Identity Theft


If you're lost in a flurry of holiday gift wish lists and dreading a trip to the crowded mall, you're probably considering the convenience of shopping online. If so, you're not alone. With each passing year, more Americans are opting to do their holiday shopping from the convenience of their home computer, and that trend is expected to increase.

As popular as online shopping is, it also poses some inherent risks. While many retailers take pains to protect their customers, some of the responsibility for keeping your identity and personal information safe lies in your own hands. By learning to take these precautions during the busiest... Read More

Featured Testimonial

by Jeanne & Bill Kulma

Lisa helped us sell our home 2 years ago after we had a bad experience with another Broker.  She was recommended to us by a friend of our son.  She came in and immediately guided us through the sale of our house.  When we decided to purchase a condo, the first person we called was Lisa.  She responded quickly and efficiently to our summons.  She knew what we required and needed and proceeded with showing us a variety of condos.  She also gave us important information regarding each property that we looked at, such as if the location was good, neighborhoods, etc.  We felt confident with the selection we made due to Lisa’s knowledge.  We would highly recommend Lisa Wenzel and her staff to anyone looking to sell or purchase property.
