America's Housing Markets

    America's Best And Worst Housing Markets

    Though U.S. home values have dropped for the 10th consecutive quarter, homeowners in some parts of the nation are seeing prices appreciating.
    Countrywide, second-quarter values fell 12.1% year-over-year to $186,500. This is a 22.3% drop in value since the mid-2006 market peak, according to's Second-Quarter Real Estate Market Report. The real estate research firm's Home Value Index measures the value of all homes in a metropolitan statistical area or metro, not only those that sold in the measured period.

    But Fayetteville, N.C., posted a Q2 2009 $120,600 median home value, up 13.4% over a year ago. In Oklahoma City, values rose in the last year 4.8% to $118,700. Further north, in Binghamton, N.Y., the $112,300 median value is 4.5% higher than it was a year ago. A relatively low percentage of June foreclosure resales--11.9% in Fayetteville and 4% in Oklahoma City--and percent of mortgages in negative equity--16.2% and 14.9%, respectively--likely contributed to the boost in home values.
    Skies aren't as bright in California, epicenter of the home-construction boom and bust. Four of the state's metros--Merced, El Centro, Madera and Modesto--posted declines of between 30% and 40%. In these areas, the sheer amount of foreclosures is depressing home values. In Merced and Madera, for example, foreclosure resales dominate home purchases, at 77.4% and 71%, respectively, for all June sales.
    What's more, these areas have high concentrations of homeowners with underwater mortgages (the situation in which the homeowner owes more than what the home is actually worth). These high rates, coupled with Merced's 18.8% unemployment and Madera's 9.6%, means more foreclosures are likely on the horizon.

How The Swiftlet Having Sex

    This pictured is taken during a visit in one of my BH project. I saw this 2 bird are having sex in the bird house. I hope to share this pictured to you.
    From this pictured also, you can saw that the nest in this bird house is cracking due to the humidity drop. After i verify it, the humidity is only min 55 % and Max is 65% only.
    What i am want to share is, the humidity will not effect the qty of the bird stay in a BH but the quality of the nest only. !!! This bird house already have more then 90 nest.

Before Start Your New Swiftlet House Project

    Got a lot of my blog reader always asking me about the design of a bird house and the cost to build it. Actually all bird house is not same. It depend on few item that we need to do some test and verify first :-

    1) Do the bird call test first.
    - need to do for few time . Get the information about the qty of the bird, flying path of the bird and the size of the bird.
    - From this test, you can design the size of the bird house you going to built.

    2) Get the information of the nearest bird house.
    - the qty of the bird insides.
    - the design of the bird house.

    3) Get the direction of the Sun and food source.
    - will help you to reduce the temperatures.

    4) the wing direction

    5) surrounding area.

    This is my basic data that i need before start a new project. Hope you can do the same and can help you to become a good and success farmer. My advise is do not built a big one, just built a small one first but remember, min is 15 X 40 feet.
