Super Bowl 46, featuring the Patriots versus the Giants, will heat up Indianapolis in just 12 days. While football fans are debating the odds of the game, companies are gearing up for a surefire win on game day through their eagerly anticipated ads and Super Bowl Sunday deals.
In addition to the anticipated revenue from game day advertising, food and beverage companies bank on bringing in some major bank on Super Bowl Sunday because football fans love their tailgate fare. According to the infographic below, the average amount of money spent last year for the big game was $59.33 per viewer, for a total of $10.1 billion — and a good chuck of that change was for food and drinks! Chipotle is hoping to share in this game day party food revenue by offering 1/2 off an order of a burrito box (which contains 6 or more burritos) for orders called in on the February 5th game day.

Back in 1972, Windermere opened its first office. Real estate was a different animal back in the early ’70s. Think about it— no email or fax, no internet, no digital photography. While the tools of the trade have drastically changed, the foundations which the Windermere company were founded upon are untouched by age. Today’s Windermere agents have a steadfast commitment to their clients and their communities, just like the agents who worked out of that first Windermere office.
While reminiscing about the past 40 years, some interesting statistics caught our eye.
Even though purchase & sale agreements contain more pages and Windermere now has 300 offices, that same 1972 business ethos, centered on community and mutual respect, remains the Windermere cornerstone. It remains central, even over the years, because it helps us every day to give you, our clients, the best service possible.
The most notable aspect of the December 2011 stats is the continued trend toward high pending sales volume despite the softening of sales prices. Listing inventory is down markedly compared to inventory levels for the past three years in the month of December. With interest rates below 4% buyer interest has remained very strong and multiple offers are not unheard of–albeit at much more modest prices than in years past. Having been burned once, buyers are cautious of overpaying and are negotiating for a fail-safe price.
