I just came from the Hutchinson Home Landscape and Garden  show that is being held at the McLeod County Fairgrounds here in Hutchinson, MN. The show ends at 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, February 21, 2010.

It was encouraging to visit with all the people who came to the show this year. Almost everyone that I visited with seemed to be much more upbeat about our economy. This is completely different than it was a year ago at the same show.

In talking to many of the vendors who have booths there this year, almost all of them told me that they had done a lot more business this year than in the past.

All of these things are good signs that people are beginning to regain confidence in our economy.

At Hometown Realty our first two months of 2010 has shown good improvement over 2009 for the real estate market here in Hutchinson, MN.

All of this seems to tell me that things are getting better and let’s hope that this momentum will continue throughout 2010!
