Did you know that most homeowners are choosing to personalize their homes with a remodel? According to a recent survey by the National Home Association of Remodeling Industry (NARI), 26 percent of respondents indicated that they are planning to stay in their homes much longer, due to decreased home values.
The recession is no secret to anyone in this economy. In 2010, existing and new single-family home sales decreased 5 percent largely in part due to the recession. However, things seem to be getting brighter. I see more cars in the home improvent retailer parking lots and lots of activity in specialty stores. You can't help but notice all of the increased advertsing by stores like Lowes Home Improvement, Home Depot, Sherwin Williams, Ace Hardware and others on the airwaves. I am impressed with all of the sponsorships and contests these companies are doing to stay front and center in the minds of customers.
