Yes, Utah, the Mormon state, home of multiple wives and big families — kidding. (Sort of.) According to recent information released by the U.S. Census Bureau, as reported by U-Haul, Utah properties have the most rooms per home, on average, followed by Texas. The Census Bureau surveyed 915 metropolitan and micropolitan areas and found out that Utah properties have the most rooms per home, on average — 7 rooms per home. (Note: I am still seeking the original source of this information.) While Texas had numerous cities on the bureau’s list, Utah areas accounted for the top five spots. In the Lone Star state, there is Brownwood, with an average of 5.7 rooms per home, the most in the state. The Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown metropolitan area followed Brownwood at an average of 5.4. I really want to know where Dallas/Fort Worth, with Vaquero mixed in, stands.
My favorite real estate blogger, Mama dear over at The RealStalker, got the scoopola straight from Austin: Dennis Quaid and his wife, Kimberly, have a giant 11,000 square foot plus house on Lake Austin under contract and are ditching sunny Cali to raise their twins here in the Lone Star state, or at least, in that part that is most like California: Austin. My colleague Sheree Curry at AOL talked to their LA agent, who told Sheree that “one of her favorite features of the Pacific Palisades home they are leaving behind is ‘a great set of huge vintage wood doors that Dennis and Kimberly put in to enter the master suite. They add a wonderful ambiance and set the scene for entering the room.’ “ Well, I’ll take being on Lake Austin over vintage wooden doors any day, no offense.
