"I have a passion for the role that home plays in the life of families. The personal wellness factor comes in to play when you feel good about the way your home presents itself to you and your guests. Home is the place you should look forward to being, no matter where you are." ~ Destiny Homes Designer Liz Sprenger
Minneapolis City Housing policy director Tom Streitz told a local TV station, "The trend is absolutely towards high amenity." August's Housing Scorecard shows the housing recovery is steady and increasing, which is adding to home values in high-demand neighborhoods across the Twin Cities. The Twin Cities housing market is on an upward trend, according to Herb Tousley, director of the Opus College of Business' Shenehon Center for Real Estate. Speaking to KSTP, Tousley says that in 2012, the average home sale price in the Twin Cities went up 10 percent. Tousley finds home values increasing, an incentive for home renovations, and added that low interest rates and fewer homes on the market will continue to drive up prices in 2013.

Households Savers Invest In Their Home As An Important Financial Asset
In a recent speech Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said the Federal Reserves plan to buy $40 billion in mortgages every month for the foreseeable future, widely recognized as QE3, would help spur greater economic activity and higher home prices. He said that would help many more savers. "Many savers are also homeowners; indeed, a family's home may be its most important financial asset," he said. "Only a strong economy can create higher asset values and sustainable good returns for savers." At September news conference in Washington, Chairman Bernanke stressed that when the Fed launched its first round of bond buying in late 2008, the average rate on a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage was a little above 6 percent. Today, the rate varies up and down around 3.4 percent, the lowest since long-term mortgages began in the 1950s.
