Masters Champs Born 100 Years Ago in 1912

Three of the the most famuous Masters champions were born 100 years ago in 1912.  The past champions Sam Snead, Ben Hogan and Byron Nelson left their indelible mark on the game of golf.  

1912 was also the year New Mexico became the 47th state, and Arizona the 48th.  The Olympics were held in Stockholm, Sweden and the Titanic struck an iceberg and sank on April 14th, 1912.

Many other outstanding people were born in 1912, including Julia Child, Jackson PollockDanny Thomas, Pat Nixon, Art Linkletter, Foster Brooks, Minnie Pearl, Woody Guthrie, Carlo Ponti, Perry Como, Karl Malden, and Lady Bird Johnson A very good year, indeed!

American Dream? Homeowner Satisfaction Survey Results

Monday, March 26th, 2012

Is the American Dream alive and well? Are Homeowners satisfied?

Is the American dream alive and well?  Are Homeowners satisfied?

 

According to the recently released results of the the 201 National Homeowners Satisfaction Survey from HomeGain– the survey revealed that 72% of surveyed homeowners are satisfied  with owning a house.  26% were dissatisfied… and mostly because of home depreciation.

People from the northeast were the highest at 77%… midwest the lowest at 68% by region.

Surprising to me those who had purchased a short sale were the most satisified of all at 83%… perhaps the  arduous process creates the feeling of “winning”!

 

The least satisfied homeowners wer the 18-25 age group, coming in at 45%, the only group to have a satisfaction rate less than 50%.  Perhaps these younger homeowners have unrealistic expectations when purchasing their home… also– they have purchased in a down market, and have yet to experience the appreciation in their home that more experienced buyers have encountered.

Snoring Spouse? Sun City has a solution for you!

Homes Designed for our Snoring Husbands… What will they think of next?

 

Today I learned about a new floor-plan design marketed specifically to couples who are sleep-challenged. Those couples that have a partner who snores, huffs, puffs, grunts, coughs, and keep the other partner awake. This hit very close to home for me… because my husband can be a snorer. And right now in the depths of a chest cold, he is also a cougher, with snoring as a bonus!

I have retreated to the guest room when it becomes more than I can bear… and when I know I have to get up early the next morning. I don’t really want to go all the way down the hall– but it is a better option than the couch, or no sleep!

Now, it turns out, I find that I am far from alone. They are actually designing homes with this in mind! Today’s Desert Sun featured an article about our Sun City community.

Buyers whose marriages are plagued by a spouse who snorts, grunts and wheezes while he or she sleeps can opt for an adaptable bedroom plan marketed as the “owners retreat” at Sun City Shadow Hills in Indio.

Designed for couples who start out in the same bed but end up apart because of ear-piercing snoring, insomnia or late-night TV viewing habits, this secondary bedroom is connected to the bathroom of the master bedroom.

“A nice enclave that shares the master bathroom provides a civilized alternative to the family room sofa,” said Jacque Petroulakis, corporate communications spokeswoman for PulteGroup Inc., the parent company of Del Webb.

Many people “don’t like the idea of having totally separate rooms, but before this, didn’t have any other choice.”About a quarter of couples in the 55-and-older age group sleep apart to get a good night’s rest, according to PulteGroup, which got the data from a third party but also conducted focus groups and interviews as it developed the bedroom plan.

If you are interested in previewing these “sleep friendly” homes… give me a call!

Sweet Dreams!
