Where on the Map Can You Find the Most Mansions?

July 13, 2016 1:12 am


Mansions are typically associated with luxury markets, but most of them exist outside high-end enclaves.

Utah, in fact, boasts the most mansions by metropolitan area—homes that have at least 15 rooms (excluding bathrooms and closets), five of which are bedrooms, according to an analysis by SmartAsset (www.smartasset.com).

Provo-Orem, Ogden-Clearfield and Salt Lake City, all in Utah, are the top three metropolitan areas nationally with the most mansions. In the Provo-Orem area, 2.42 percent of houses are considered mansions by SmartAsset’s definition—nearly double the amount in Ogden-Clearfield, which is 1.57 percent. Just over 1 percent (1.44) of Salt Lake City homes is considered mansions.

Rounding out the top 10 metropolitan areas with the most mansions are:

4. Bridgeport-Stamford-Norwalk, Conn. (1.37 percent)
5. Washington, D.C. (1.11 percent)
6. Atlanta, Ga. (1.11 percent)
7. Honolulu, Hawaii (1.02 percent)
8. Orlando, Fla. (0.93 percent)
9. Raleigh, N.C. (0.84 percent)
10. Oxnard-Thousand Oaks-Ventura, Calif. (0.77 percent)

Dips, Sips and Spills: The Secret Lives of Partygoers

July 12, 2016 1:06 am


Every partygoer’s broken the rules of party-dom at one time or another. Turns out, a lot of us have secretly committed a party no-no at gatherings with our families and friends:

• One in four people in a recent poll by Boxed Wholesale admitted to double-dipping chips and crudités at a party. I dip, you dip, we all dip!

• More than one-fifth of people in that same poll admitted to spilling a drink on the floor at a party and not cleaning it up. Classic spill-and-run.

• Forty percent of people in the poll admitted to wiping their hands on something other than a napkin at a party. Caught orange-handed!

• Close to one-third of people in the poll admitted to drinking out of a cup they weren’t sure was their own. Let’s…raise our glasses?

Thankfully, these faux pas haven’t broken us of habits like bringing the host a gift, helping clean up and sending a thank-you note, according to the poll. Courtesies still exist!
