Boosting and Maximizing the Recovering Housing Industry of Indiana


Indiana has always focused on the manufacturing segment of its economy. The state is highly involved in heavy industries that include steel, machineries, medical devices, automobiles, electrical and transportation equipment, petroleum, and rubber, among others. Because of that, over 3,000,000 workers in the state are more or less required of highly skilled labor.

Perhaps because of this involvement in automobile manufacturing, Indiana once depended on small trailers as their temporary shelters. This trend began prior to World War II and lasted until the 1940s, with the mobile homes improving in size and features. In the 1990s, these house trailers composed nearly a third of all new single-family houses in the US and Indiana became its largest producer. These days, mobile homes are also labeled as “manufactured housing” and they are comparable to site built homes when it comes to structure, comfort, and quality.

Despite the prosperity of Indiana’s housing segment during that period, it still failed to dodge the challenges of the global economic recession.

Like other local industries, their housing market was affected for several years. Home sales went down and people were discouraged to commit themselves into considerable housing investments.

Today, the economy is gradually picking up and the housing market in Indiana is showing signs of quick recovery. According to the Indiana Association of Realtors, home sales for January 2012 were 14 percent higher than the same period last year. Additionally, the median home sales prices increased by one percent.

According to experts in the housing market, these signs of recovery can be primarily attributed to the improved confidence of people to home builders.

A business school in Indiana said the consumers’ trust to home manufacturers is the highest in the span of 5 years. Experts say the Indiana debt consolidation and mortgage providers also played a crucial part.

With the debt consolidation Indiana mortgage companies offer, homeowners gained the confidence to obtain considerable housing loans. They became certain that they can pay off their monthly dues and avoid home repossessions or foreclosures. The increasing number of job opportunities for Indiana residents is said to contribute to this positive consumer mindset as well.

With all these positive changes in the housing sector, economists say the people also have a role to play in further improving the segment. By buying bank owned homes Indiana has, they can contribute to the development and complete recovery of their housing industry. For more tips on how locals can empower home sales in Indiana, visit

Industrial Juicer For Home Use

Do I want an industrial juicer on my kitchen counter?  Well maybe not the ,000 model. But money is not the only factor to determine an industrial or commercial ranking juicer.  The quality of the machine and its purpose are qualifying factors.  Are the units designed for one function or additional uses?  Should this only be applied to a commercial or retail foodservice situation?  The questions open up the door for extended discussion. However, in this article we will endeavor to look and limit our immediate outlook at what I believe are the top juicers for sale that span a diverse use for consumers.  The first two are reamer type juicers for citrus.  The next two are different types of juicers.  The champion is an example of the best masticating juicers, while the Omega 9000 is an example of one of the best centrifugal juicers. I will say up front, none of these are cheap juicers.  The prices range from 0 to 0. 

Waring Pro:  This is a citrus juicer that is a true restaurant/bar grade reamer juicer.  Compact and heavy this juicer can fit into a commercial or home situation easily.  The operation is quiet and the bowl is dishwasher safe.  Definitely a plus for home use. 


Omega Upright:  This is a newer concept in reamer type juicing.  With the Waring Pro, the citrus is held in the mechanism and the juice is worked out of the fruit; alternately, the Upright has an initial reaming action followed by the whole fruit is then crushed by the rotating auger and continues to extricate juice from the produce.   This juicer has been redesigned from the table up. 


Champion commercial/overseas:  This comes in two models:  a commercial overseas model and a homeowner's version.  The commercial is both 110 volt and 220 volt to accommodate different requirements overseas.  The commercial motor is a GE and is slightly larger in capacity. This is a masticating juicer that works at a lower RPM.  This results in less juice oxidation. 


Omega 9000:  This juicer is quiet and vibration free.  The construction is with surgical stainless steel for the blade, bowl and basket.  The motor is a GE and runs at 3600 RPM's.  This juicer uses a centrifugal extraction process and can result in an increase of twenty to thirty percent more juice.  The basket has been hand balanced at the factory for best results. 

All four of these juicers are sturdy and capable to handle any continuous juicing needs.  While there are distinct difference in the price range and the actual juicing process, any one of these would be an asset for your family.  May excellent health bless your family and happy juicing.
