Housing production was booming... Read More

3 Things to Consider before Accepting a Cash Offer


The cash buyer outranks the financed buyer because there is a lower chance of the deal falling through and because, typically, a cash buyer can close faster than a financed buyer. These are attractive benefits in some situations. Yet there's more to a home offer than a finance contingency and the closing date. In general, there are three things you should scrutinize before accepting a cash offer for your home:

1. Source of the Cash
Of course you need to verify that the cash buyer has the cash he says he does. But it's not just a question... Read More

Boost Your Home's Appeal with These Backyard Accents


A lot is said about curb appeal when listing your home for sale, and the outward appearance of your property is important. What many home sellers do not know, however, is that the backyard can be even more enticing to would-be buyers. A beautifully manicured lawn and perfectly landscaped exterior will draw buyers in, but what they see in the back of the home may close the deal. Adding these simple touches to your backyard can make your home more appealing, and help it to sell faster.

A Fire Pit

Featured Testimonial

by Ben Sellnow

I think of myself as a "DIY" kind of person so when it came time to sell my condo and buy a home I thought, "Who needs an agent?"  So I set out to learn what it takes to sell a home and it was daunting to say the least.  Then real life set in and I found I had no time to market my property, let alone coordinate showings or anything else that goes into the process of selling a home.

Fortunately, around the same time as I was losing heart, a friend of mine bought her first house and recommended that I get in touch with the agent she'd used.  Christine was extremely knowledgeable and supportive through the sale of my condo and the purchase of my new place.

Being new to the process I needed a little bit of hand-holding but Christine and the team at Wenzel Select were more than up to the task and I was extremely impressed with the communication and responsiveness.  At the end of the day, I sold my condo for a great price and found the perfect house in the perfect part of town and it literally wouldn't have been possible without Christine's expertise.  She's absolutely stellar and I would recommend her and the team to any of my family or friends.
