Macroeconomics is an excellent tool for the analysis of the housing industry as something like a capital good, as a home is considered to be, cannot easily be studied in a short-term platform. Real estate is a good that costs several times more than an average persons annual income, in the United States that number is typically 7 times as much, and in the United Kingdom that number is 14 times as much. Several factors of both supply and demand directly impact the housing market on a macroeconomic scale. (Business Economics, 1)
Drovers, people who herd large groups of cattle, heading up the Chisholm Trail toward the railroads the final stop for any last-minute supplies was Fort Worth, Texas. Beyond that you’d cross the Red River and into Indian Territory. During the years of 1866 and 1890, drovers herded over four million head of cattle through Fort Worth. The city soon became known as “Cowtown.” As the railroad arrived in 1876, Fort Worth developed into a shipping port for livestock, so the city built up the Union Stockyards. Despite the Union Stockyards lacking the essential funding to buy enough cattle to attract local ranchers, President Mike C.

Take a look at the attached spreadsheet which graphically depicts the population demography of the United States, Florida, and Orlando. The charts reveal that the US has a diversified relatively flat distribution. Florida has a slightly older demographic (10-years skewed to the right), but Orlando has a young pressure wave building up to a large group of people in need of housing. Their need does not decline due to a lack of ability to purchase. I anticipate an increasing demand in the residential rental market. We have seen a strong increase in rental rates that has far outpaced mortgage payment increases over the last ten years.

Florida International University is an amazing school but affording it is not easy, especially due to my circumstances. My mother is a single mother of four children, me being the oldest, each child five to seven years apart. She is a certified nursing assistant and only has some college completed. My mom had to put her life on hold, sacrificing her education to take care of her children. She was not born in the United States, but in Haiti. After my aunt there is not much family that lives in the United States, instead they live in Haiti. This scholarship would be a blessing, having a positive impact on my education and life. Financially, it will help my pay for the schooling I need to accomplish my goals that I wish to pursue at Florida International University. This scholarship can really be the start to my future and my plans.
Nick Tosches once said, “I don’t have a college degree” (Picturequotes, 2017). Quite frankly, neither do I considering the fact that I am fourteen years old and not a genius.

Eventually the time came to head on our way.
The Canadian senior housing market is very broad, both economically and physically. Financial and medical needs have shaped the various different types of senior housing, resulting in benefits and disadvantages of each type.

After researching the foreign markets, our department proposes that Canada would be our direction to go with to expand our business. The selection that we made is due to many factors. One of the factors involved is that Canada’s housing starts for 2012 is down by only percentage points. (Centre for the Study of Living Standards, 2012) This allows us to believe that the economy is still strong in the Canadian foreign market. There is new construction going on in Canada and there is potential for the market to go back up.
