March 29 – National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day

Quote

Have your ever owned your own business?  We have.  We opened and ran a Music and Book Store at Cedar Creek Lake called “Schwanee’s Music, Books & More”.  It was a lot of fun and much hard work.  Our teen sons worked there and loved it.  Even our youngest son helped out on occasions.  If you have your own small mom and pop shop – enjoy your day.

March 28 – Little Red Wagon Day

Quote

A Red Wagon is a must for the Schwanbecks.  They all love red wagon rides.  Now we have 2 different kinds of wagons.  The City wagon has seat belts and sippy cup holders.  In the country we are more relaxed and the country wagon has wood slats and all-terrain-tires.  I hope you have as Happy Little Red Wagon Day as all our grandkids above have had.

March 26 – Epilepsy Awareness Day

Quote

03-26 EpilepsyDay

According to the World Health Organization, nearly 50 million people around the world live with epilepsy.  While it is not contagious, and in many cases, there is no known cause for the condition, sometimes the reason is due to disease or injury such as stroke or infection.
It is a treatable condition, but it can be confusing especially for children.  In some parts of the world, treatment may be difficult to get.

March 25 – National Tolkien Reading Day

Quote

03-25 TolkienReadingDay

As a young girl my uncle gave me a series of books that I read many many times over the years – The Hobbit and the trilogy captured my imagination.  It was very exciting to see the movies years later when they came out.  I remember being very impatient for each new movie to come out.  So for all those Tolkien fans out there – Happy Tolkien Reading Day.  I think I will pull out my well loved books and begin reading them again.

Reasons for Not Moving in 10+ Years

Quote

Bruce and I bought our current home in 2007 and we are one of those who are ‘Happy Where We Are’.  It isn’t worth the time, expense to make a move.  And the thought of packing up everything and moving it – it just isn’t something I want to do in this stage of our lives.

NAHB regularly conducts national polls of American adults and home buyers in order to understand new trends and preferences in the housing market. This is the fifth in a series of posts highlighting poll results, as presented during the 2018 International Builders’ Show in Orlando, FL.  See previous posts on tiny homesdriverless carstime searching for a home, and essential features.

Currently, one of the most pressing issues in the housing market is the lack of inventory available for-sale. Part of the problem stems from the fact that existing homeowners are staying in their homes longer than they used to, and therefore keeping their homes off-the-market.  A recent poll asked people living in their homes for 10 years or longer the reasons they have chosen to stay put for so long.

By far, the most important reason long-term residents aren’t moving is because they like their home and are comfortable in it (70%), followed by their lack of desire to go through the hassle/expense of finding another home and moving (21%).   Meanwhile, 10% say it’s because there are no homes on the market they would want to buy and could afford.  This last finding suggests that a not-so-trivial 10% of people living in their homes for a decade or more could be enticed to move if only there were more homes on the market to choose from.

Of all the possible reasons long-term residents could choose from to explain their long stay, the three least important ones are: not wanting to give up a current low mortgage interest rate (5%), moving to a new job would require going to a more expensive area (4%), and the home is underwater (3%). This suggests that a desire to keep a low mortgage rate is far from being the primary culprit for the reduced mobility seen in recent years (as is sometimes attributed).

March 23 – Happy Puppy Day

Quote

06-01 DSC03772

 

We Love Labs.  Through the years we have owned many.  We have bred and sold them.  Labs have lots of puppies.  We have had great lab pups.  They were are part of our family.  Our first lab used to jump on the trampoline with our boys.  They would climb a tree and Jake even followed them up the tree.  Our last lab Rocky, was loved by all the neighbors.  He would visit each one every day.  He would walk for miles, run with the joggers, eat the fish neighbors caught, and then go to some other homes to take a nap and get snacks.
