About Local Market Monitor

Founded in 1990 by Ingo Winzer, Local Market Monitor began as a quarterly publication before making its way to the Internet. Ingo developed the National Review of Real Estate Markets, which analyzed conditions in 100 US Markets, using such economic data as home values, employment growth, and population growth. He developed the concept of Equilibrium Home Prices, which has proved valuable in assessing real estate market risk during the last two economic cycles.

Local Market Monitor continues to evolve in response to the needs of our customers and advances in technology. We've expanded our market coverage and refined our forecast models to enhance the value of our services. We've made our insight more accessible and convenient for our customers through our website or your company's Intranet.

We are committed to delivering outstanding value to our customers and earning their business every day. Let us know how we are doing!
