Answer to Brain Teaser from August 6, 2014

 

On September 19, 1893 New Zealand Governor Lord Glasgow signed a new election act into the law of the land. This was a landmark piece of legislation as New Zealand became the FIRST self governing country in the entire world to allow universal suffrage to all citizens. Women now had the right to vote in parliamentary elections. This landmark law was achieved as the result of years of work led by Kate Sheppard.

Thank you all for commenting on my post yesterday and a couple folks got this answer correct and big shout to them. The treadmills at Lifetime Fitness in Katy have running courses where the film is of cool places to visit and run for you to watch while working out. One area is the South Island run and this is where I learned New Zealand was the first.

After seeing all of these filmed runs numerous times now, I have to say I do want to travel to New Zealand as it is on my bucket list. I have to walk very fast on the treadmill as due to hip surgery I am not suppose to run anymore. I have been fortunate enough to have traveled to Australia for one trip and it was fabulous with one of numerous highlights included night sailing on Sydney Harbor.

The prices range from a low of $255,900 for a 4 bedroom home to $624,990  for a five  bedroom and 5 baths  home with 4,275 sq. ft. of space per the builder.  There are 17 homes today listed as being under contract with a median list price of approximately $ 102.00 per square foot.



Please see the chart below which gives everyone a snapshot of what is available right now.

Median Price of Homes Sold 2013   $101.74                    
                         
                         

 There are 3.2 months of supply available right now but these figures are fluid and change on a daily basis. There are 63 homes available to purchase which probably most with varying possibilities for a closing date. Firethorne has one of the largest number of inventory homes in the Katy area if not the largest.  New build home inventory in Firethorne is  fairly high right now as it appears the builders spent a significant amount of their resources gearing up for this spring’s buyers. As we can see, there are 20 homes priced at less than $350,000 which is very hard to find this many available new or resale homes at these price points anywhere in Katy TX. Prices in Firethorne like the rest of most of South Katy have gone up this past year and I think this trend will continue during 2014.
