It's back for another 2 seasons! Portlandia!
PORTLAND, Ore. -- The city of Portland continues to be famously weird, and the TV comedy loosely created around its quirkiness has not run short on fans yet, or sketch ideas.
No doubt that's why IFC just renewed Portlandia for two more seasons.
Portlandia is currently in its fifth season, and IFC announced Tuesday that fans can look forward to 10 more half-hour episodes for seasons six and seven.
"We are so excited to get to do more Portlandia with IFC," stars Fred Armisen andCarrie Brownstein said in a joint statement. "Getting to work with Jon [Krisel] and our talented writers and crew, it really is our favorite thing in the world. Also, we get to spend more time in Portland!"
Net worth as a renter versus a homeowner...
Net Worth: A Homeowner’s is 36x Greater Than A Renter!
Over the last six years, homeownership has lost some of its allure as a financial investment. As homeowners suffered through the housing bust, more and more began to question whether owning a home was truly a good way to build wealth.
Every three years the Federal Reserve conducts a Survey of Consumer Finances in which they collect data across all economic and social groups.
Some of the findings revealed in their report:
- The average American family has a net worth of $81,200
- Of that net worth, 61.4% ($49,856) of it is in home equity
- A homeowner’s net worth is over 36 times greater than that of a renter
- The average homeowner has a net worth of $194,500 while the average net worth of a renter is $5,400
There are many reasons why owning a home makes sense, the Fed study shows that owning is still a great way for families to build wealth in America.
Oh, Zillow. This is one of the hardest parts of my job (shakes virtual fist in the virtual air).
Inaccurate Zillow 'Zestimates' a source of conflict over home prices
