Having owned their homes for about eight and a half years, their profit return was about 21 percent. With 71 percent of sellers in the market for a new house though, the question remains, how easy is it for them to purchase a new home at today’s prices, even with their newfound returns.Zillow calculated the typical length of time a 2017 seller owned their home before selling and then found the median price gain on sales in major U.S. metros. It then compared this gain to the price of a 20 percent down payment on a median-priced house in April 2018.At a national level, the $39,000 returns sellers reaped in 2017 was not enough to cover a 20 percent down payment on a median-priced home, which comes to about $43,000, the study found. In fact, in 25 of the 33 metros, Zillow covered profits earned in 2017 fell short of a 20 percent down payment in the same market today. In New York, the nearly 15 percent gain translated to $46,000 in earnings. While that is above the level for a 20 percent down payment at the national level, in New York, a 20 percent down payment is significantly higher, about $84,960. In Chicago, sellers faired similarly, gaining $19,900, which is less than half what is needed for a down payment in the metro—about $43,600The outliers, where home sellers did earn enough to cover a down payment in their market, included a handful of high-priced markets in the West. In San Jose, California, homeowners reaped $296,000 in profit after owning their homes for almost nine years. This was more than enough for a $252,780 down payment on a median-priced home in the area. In fact, this profit was higher than the national median home price. In percentage terms, San Jose ranked highest for median percent change in price between home sales with a 53.8 percent increase. San Francisco (45.5 percent); Seattle, Washington (44.7 percent); and Portland Oregon (37.6 percent) also posted high rates of return. As in San Jose, sellers in these markets can afford a down payment on a median-priced home with the profits earned on the sale of their home. The good news for the sellers in those markets where they did not earn enough for that 20 percent down payment is their earnings still often give them an edge over first-time buyers.  Today’s sellers “typically are buyers as well, but the profits from the sale of their former home give them an advantage over first-time buyers who may be coming in with smaller down payments,” said Aaron Terrazas, Senior Economist at Zillow.

Relict subglacial deltas on the Antarctic Peninsula outer shelf

first_imgThe first deep-tow boomer survey on the Antarctic continental margin has revealed relict subglacial deltas on the outer continental shelf off the Antarctic Peninsula. Progradation of subglacial deltas is thought to take place at the grounding lines of ice streams which flow on deforming subglacial till. Acoustic characteristics and estimation of likely sediment transport rates suggest that these features were produced by late-stage readvance of grounding lines during the waning of the last ice sheet that covered the shelf. This readvance could have taken place during the Younger Dryas (12.9–11.6 ka), but changes in sea level and climate may not be the only important controls on subglacial delta formation. The discovery of relict subglacial deltas on the outer shelf is consistent with the hypothesis that the grounded ice sheet in these areas was low profile and fast flowing. If low-profile grounded ice extended to the shelf edge in many places around Antarctica at times of glacial maximum, this could explain the greater glacial maximum ice-sheet extent in interpretations based on offshore data, compared with reconstructions based on onshore data and numerical glaciological models.last_img read more

How do you know where your most valuable assets are on your network?

first_img 10SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr The question about information security that I get most often from credit unions is, “How do I know where my most valuable assets are on my network ?” Valuable assets might be information regarding a credit union’s membership, such as social security numbers, credit card numbers, account numbers, etc.It can be difficult to keep track of where these assets are. As you grow as a credit union and as an organization, you get more and more servers and more systems – and you might not actually track where all that data is going. continue reading »last_img

Great American Smokeout encourages being smoke-free

first_imgStatewide—Tomorrow marks the 44th annual Great American Smokeout. For more than 40 years, the American Cancer Society has hosted the Great American Smokeout on the third Thursday of November. The Great American Smokeout is an opportunity for people who smoke to commit to healthy, smoke -free lives – not just for a day, but year-round. The Great American Smokeout provides an opportunity for individuals, community groups, businesses, health care providers, and others to encourage people to use the date to make a plan to quit, or plan in advance and initiate a smoking cessation plan on the day of the event.   The idea for the Great American Smokeout grew from a 1970 event in Randolph, Massachusetts, at which Arthur P. Mullaney asked people to give up cigarettes for a day and donate the money they would have spent on cigarettes to a high school scholarship fund.Then in 1974, Lynn R. Smith, editor of the Monticello Times in Minnesota, spearheaded the state’s first D-Day, or Don’t Smoke Day. The idea caught on, and on November 18, 1976, the California Division of the American Cancer Society got nearly 1 million people who smoke to quit for the day. That California event marked the first official Smokeout, and the American Cancer Society took it nationwide in 1977. Since then, there have been dramatic changes in the way the public views tobacco advertising and tobacco use. Many public places and work areas are now smoke-free – this protects non-smokers and supports people who smoke who want to quit.The American Cancer Society is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to provide support, from questions about quitting smoking to looking for national or local resources to help you quit.
