According to This Old House, between 2007 and 2008 wallboard prices dropped 22 percent and framing lumber more than 15 percent. Since then, contractors and laborers have found themselves scrambling for jobs. Whereas they once sought only high-end full house construction or remodeling, they are now looking for even handyman work. Now is the time for that residential remodeling that you’ve been wanting!
Materials Are Affordable
With falling real estate market prices, new construction has declined. The prices for building materials have decreased right along with them. Now, you can afford the residential remodeling that was out of reach only a few short years ago.
Contractors and Laborers Are Available
Remember the days when you called your local contractor, but his calendar was full for nearly two years? Not anymore! Today, contractors are working hard to fill their schedules even a few months in advance.
Interest Rates Are Low for Home Equity Loans
If you are debating about a loan to improve your home, now is the time to apply! Banks made a lot of bad loans and now they have to make up for it. So, they are looking for folks who want to gear up for the next round, when the market picks up again.
If there is a baby on the way, you want to remodel your kitchen, or your basement needs a little work, you can make it happen more affordably in today’s market. Or, if you are thinking ahead and realizing the market will eventually bounce back, now is the time to fix up your home, as its appearance will play a major role in reselling. A new roof, a finished basement, an extra bathroom, or a bit of landscaping will attract potential high-end buyers. Americans want something that is pretty as well as functional, and that’s what sells.
Of course, an upgrade of your current living space is also a change for the better! Take advantage of all the options that are available.
