Twin Cities Home Sales Resurge


The Twin Cities appear to be no longer fumbling - at least if you put aside the bungled chance to send the Vikings to the Super Bowl. On the bright side, by year end 2009, the 13-county metro area had 52,167 total pending home sales, its highest number since 2005, according to recently released monthly data from the Minneapolis Area Association of Realtors.

"2009 will go down in the history books as the year that the local housing market took large healing steps toward balance," crows the association.
