The Multi-Indicator Market Index Shows a Stabilizing Market


The Multi-Indicator Market Index (MiMi) measures the stability of the national housing market by analyzing home-purchase applications, payment-to-income ratios, local employment prospects, and the number of on-time mortgage payments. If a market experiences low buyer demand, it will fall outside its stable range, as will a market that overheats to an unsustainable degree of activity.

Tips to Avoid Home Closing Delays


When you set a date to close on a home, you'll want to make sure that the closing goes through on the agreed upon date. Delays in closing can have financial consequences.

Featured Testimonial

by Pat & Amanda McKevitt

We were introduced to Wenzel Select Properties through a seminar that was held at a local graduate school where my wife currently attends, and the willingness to share knowledge is what made us choose Wenzel Select Properties

Lisa is super friendly and easy to deal with. Overall We had a great experience with her.

Lisa was fantastic and helped out a ton with my inspection. I was actually on my honeymoon in Jamaica and she arranged the whole thing and executed everything seamlessly even with me and my wife being in a different country.

Overall experience was great. They are even bringing food for my house warming party! Who does that?
