A growing number of homebuyers around the Twin Cities have found a similar attachment to older homes.

Real estate agents sold 561 homes built before 1940 in 2006, 87 more than they did in 2005, according to the Bloomington-Normal Association of Realtors. Old home sales in 2006 were at the highest level since 1999 when agents sold 490 pre-1940s homes.
