MMBA Joins Minnesota Homes Matter

The Mid-Minnesota Builders Association (MMBA) continuously seeks out partnerships with organizations that strengthen the competitiveness, professionalism, and public's confidence in the industry. That's why we're excited to announce a new partnership with Minnesota Homes Matter. Created by the Minnesota Homeowners Alliance, Minnesota Home Matters engages lawmakers and urges them to remember the thousands of Minnesota homeowners across the state. Specifically, Minnesota Home Matters educates Minnesota lawmakers and the public on the importance of the Minnesota mortgage interest deduction.

Homeownership tax incentives such as the state mortgage interest deduction play a big role in every phase of the Minnesota housing market. By putting dollars back in the hands of Minnesota families, the state mortgage interest deduction encourages Minnesotans to purchase a new home, including the construction of new properties. Many real estate investment decisions, including new home construction projects across mid-Minnesota, have been made with current Minnesota tax law factored in. Changing the Minnesota mortgage interest deduction would mean fewer homeowners and new homes.


Many Minnesotans are familiar with the federal mortgage interest deduction, while the state mortgage interest deduction is less well known. This not only includes our neighbors, but also policymakers in St. Paul. The Minnesota mortgage interest deduction, and its 80 year history, should speak for itself, but every so often, changes to, or outright elimination of, the state deduction are proposed.

To set the record straight on the state mortgage interest deduction, Minnesota Home Matters members have traveled across the state talking to policymakers, construction companies, architects, bankers, and title companies - anyone with a stake in the housing market - building partners to protect the state mortgage interest deduction. By engaging legislators in St. Paul and across the state, Minnesota Home Matters ensures Minnesota policymakers understand the benefits of the state mortgage interest deduction.

At MMBA it is our mission to foster a healthy environment for the home building industry. For over 80 years, the Minnesota mortgage interest deduction has done just that. We must ensure that any legislative action in St. Paul does not penalize Minnesota's home builders.  A healthy environment for Mid-Minnesota builders means more homes for Minnesota families. Again and again, it has been proven that home ownership is good for Minnesota's communities and we're happy to partner with Minnesota Homes Matter to spread that message. To learn more and join the coalition, please visit: www.mnhomesmatter.com/coalition

Make sure you're participating in the life of the MMBA. It's one of the best way to get to know your peers. And it's a great opportunity to make friends for a lifetime.
