The fact that US homeowners gained $2.2 trillion in equity during the year ending September 30 as home values rebounded was the "biggest story in American real estate in 2013," but it hasn't gotten the attention it deserves, columnist Ken Harney says.
Harney says the gains are crucial because as more homeowners get out from underwater, they can sell without bringing money to the closing table, borrow against their homes to help pay for home improvements and other expenses, or refinance their mortgages. Source: kpbj.com

Matt is a truly wonderful agent. His calm professionalism, knowledge of the area and the market, and upbeat mannerism immediately made us feel more comfortable about selling our home. He was consistently patient and persistent with the ups and downs of selling the house, and he never failed to offer us a completely thorough job. We highly recommend Matt, he's an outstanding agent, but more importantly, he's an outstanding person who helped us in every way he could. Milton & Ondrea Q.
