4th of July is merely days away and in the spirit of patriotism, I could write about The American Dream of Homeownership being alive and well – yesterday, the New York Times published an article stating “nearly nine in 10 Americans say homeownership is an important part of the American Dream” according to a poll conducted with CBS News- or about some of the shining stars in recently reported real estate numbers-Case-Shiller released a report this week stating 13 of 20 metro areas tracked showed monthly gains. This is welcome news before the impending holiday.
However, I want to share something that I believe is equally patriotic and shows the incredible strides we have taken as a nation since our forefathers signed The Declaration of Independence, changing the course of American history. And that is the advances we have made in digital technology. Most fascinating to me are the ways we share and gather data-on desktops, smartphones, tablets and other internet-enabled devices. An increasing trend I have seen is a visual representation of data, called an infographic. There have been several infographics representing trends in real estate- you can see one below.
But in honor of the 4th, I would like you to take a look at a really cool 4th of July infographic I stumbled upon-see below to learn some revealing statistics about this national holiday! Anything you didn’t know?
