 This past weekend I attended Train Days at Union Depot. This is a fun family event held annually at this historical downtown St. Paul train station.  It is a chance for train lovers of all ages to view walk through the beautifully renovated Union Depot and see vintage train engines and even stroll through restored dining and passenger cars of yesteryear.  There was an outdoor kid play area with food trucks and indoor events included model train displays, art activities, vendors and abundant photo ops. One of the events was the opportunity to tour the Metro Transit Light Rail’s Green Line Operations and Maintenance facility. It is astounding to realize there are 46 trains that make up the Green Line along with an additional 46 trains being maintained at a similar facility on the far wes...

   Living in Minnesota is not as affordable as it once was. Home prices are continually increasing in the Minneapolis/St Paul metro. And to make things more stressful, rent costs in the Twin Cities are among the highest in the nation. Monthly rent costs for one and two bedroom units are nearly $1500 and $2000 respectively.  Check out this June 2019 report on rent prices nationwide.   This leads many renters to ask, “Should I Buy instead of Rent?” It is a continuing dilemma facing many would be first time homebuyers. It also creates a lot of discussion and sometimes debate. So why is “Rent vs Buy?” such a tough question to answer? There are many variables in a home purchase investment. The biggest is location which can often determine the price of a home. We used to be blessed in the Min...

Spring is Here! And some of us are ready to planning out our gardens despite the rain and occasional snowflake that fell today.  While walking through a park in Maplewood, Minnesota last summer, I came across directions posted on how to plant prairie butterfly garden.  How fun to be able to attract bumble bees and butterflies to your property with blossoms this spring and summer. Gardens and perennial flower beds boost curb appeal by making a home cheerful and inviting if you should ever decide to sell too. So plan (and plant) your own...if it ever stops raining that is!
