What Are Seller Concessions?


Buying a home can be an expensive process. Enter seller concessions: These are costs associated with purchasing a home that a seller agrees to pay for the buyer. Rather than a buyer paying for these out-of-pocket expenses themselves, the seller agrees to cover the cost, allowing homeowners to sell their home quicker while helping to ease the financial burden on buyersRead More

Sales Decline Across Regions as Prices Decline in Some Markets


According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), existing-home sales declined in April in every sales region in the country; both month-over-month and year-over-year sales were impacted.

Featured Testimonial

by Amanda


I had an absolute slam dunk experience working with Lisa of Wenzel Select Properties. She came highly recommended through the entrepreneurial community, and right away I could tell why! This woman knows how to get it done! She came over with an impressive presentation showcasing her stats, and clearly was the best choice. Between Lisa and her amazing assistant Melissa, the level of communication was outstanding. I received feedback from every showing and weekly status reports informing of each move the team had made. It was quite impressive reading the amount of work covered in one week by this team!

Lisa has her finger on the pulse of this market, predicted down to the T what would happen, and formulated the master strategy. My home sold almost immediately following her advice, and I walked away with more than expected. Also, she’s a really cool person – even took out my internet router equipment and returned it to UPS for me! I am one happy lady. If you’re looking for a stress free, slam dunk real estate experience, I recommend Lisa Wenzel.
