Fun Fact 2:
Greenway Mortgage calculated how long (in years) it would take for an average resident to save enough money to buy a home with 10% down in each state. ย They took the percentage of income spent renting in each state, and the amount needed for a 10% down payment in order to make their determinations.

Fun Fact 3:
In 2022, the median age for the United States as a whole was 39 years, but the median age by state has a lot more variance. Main is the oldest and Utah is the youngest.

Quote I’m pondering:

“In this short Life
That only lasts an hour
How much โ€“ how little โ€“ is
Within our power”
