Frank Nothaft, Chief Economist of Freddie Mac, explains how to use the Multi-Indicator Market Index (MiMi), a new publicly-accessible tool that monitors and measures the stability of the nation's housing market on a monthly basis.

Nothaft reveals that the Midwest region, Texas in particular, leads the way in growth, while Florida, New Jersey and North Carolina show the most improvement.
