USA on Top in Medals but Not…
The United States has 18 medals so far in the 2012 Olympics in London and leads China by 1 medal (17). USA Olympians will try to extend the lead today with Phelps trying to get his first Gold. Australia is 9th overall in the medal count, but number one in home repairs according to Google insights.
This data is from the last 12 months based on searches for Home Repairs. When it comes to Home Improvement searches, the United States leads globally. This is encouraging data and is backed up by Home improvement retailers The Home Depot (HD), Lowe’s Companies (LOW), Lumber Liquidators Holdings (LL) and Builders FirstSource (BLDR) have been rewarding investors with healthy gains. More homeowners today are swaying towards home improvement to increase the value of their home and to improve marketability.
What’s interesting and due to a very hot summer across the U.S. is that more searches for Air Condition repair are related to auto over home. Are people living in their cars today?
Texas tops all states when it comes to air condition repair and there’s no surprise there. San Antonio, Texas will be in triple digits all week with no relief in sight.
