    Things To Be Thankful For This Thanksgiving

    November 23rd, 2011

    When most people initially think of Thanksgiving the first words that spring to mind are shopping, turkey, and football. What tends to get glossed over by most people is actually stopping to think about all that we have to give thanks for. Thanksgiving provides us with an excellent opportunity to step back and think about the things that we are most grateful for. Living here in Des Moines we all have plenty to give thanks for.  We decided a great way to do this was to take a step back and look back at all the achievements our city of Des Moines was able to accrue this year.  Thankfully the Greater Des Moines Partnership had already researched some of this information and pulled together an impressive list:

    Greater Des Moines Ranks #1 Best City for Young Professionals - Forbes, July 2011

    Des Moines ranks #2 Best Place for Business. - Forbes, June 2011

    Des Moines is the #1 richest metro in the nation. - US News & World Report, June 2011

    Des Moines is the #1 city in the US for home renters. - Time Magazine, June 2011

    Iowa ranks #9 for best state for business. - CNBC, June 2011

    Des Moines ranks #5 for best cities for families. Based on great schools, affordable homes, low crime rates, jobs, and parkland. - Parenting Magazine, June 2011

    Not only are we thankful for our wonderful city getting so much recognition this year, we were also thankful to be named #1 in Overall Customer Satisfaction for  both home buyers and home sellers this year.  This annual award is presented by J.D. Power & Associates.  More information can be obtained from their website.  Statistics on home buying can be found here, and home selling can be found here.

    A DESIGNER’S TIP
    Always remember that vacant homes do not sell well. Not only are they cold and uninviting but only 10% of buyers are able to in vision it furnished. Just an upholstered chair, end table, lamp and accessories can do the trick. Compliment with a book open, as being read, a wine glass, adorn the fireplace and bookcase with accessories and you’ll have the prospective buyer in the mood to sit down and want to stay. At RE/MAX Real Estate Group your agent will always be ready to avail the Design Center to you and your needs. Always the cutting edge in home sales.P8231133
