Home Sales Shatter Records for June in Dayton
This morning I got this article from the Dayton Business Journal sent to my inbox:
That means that the economy is are finally starting to turn around here in Dayton. It may even be heating up despite all this rain this summer.
With people buying and selling homes, we know that there are THREE reasons home owners call on remodeling businesses.
Remodel to get the MAX SELLING PRICE
In some cases they need to update homes in order to get their maximum selling price. I know of one business who has several projects on the books to update homes that have not been touched in 20 years. Either someone’s parents passed away or they are downsizing into a condo or retirement community and now it is time to sell their home. Without changing the pink bathroom and outdated kitchen, the selling price might end up lower than it could be. A $20,000 investment in renovations can increase the value of a home by $30-40,0000 according to this business. At least those are the numbers that he is seeing.
Remodel to MAKE THE NEW HOME THEIR OWN
Another reason to remodel is because you purchased a house and there are things that need to be changed to make what you want it to be. Maybe you took a discount to cover the cost of updates or to repair or replace the roof. You are ready to make the changes and now you need to find someone to do the work.
Remodel to ENJOY THE HOME THEY ARE IN
That’s the category that my wife and I fit into. We have an old farm-house that we have renovated from top to bottom over the last 20 years. The kitchen counter was banged up and the kitchen sink was rusting around the edges. The faucets were dripping and outdated. It was time to make it what we wanted so we put in a new quarts countertop, a composite sink and a up-to-date new kitchen faucet. We also added a tile back splash throughout.
Once that is all paid for, we are considering taking out a part of the wall between the kitchen and the dining room to open things up. We are inspired by the show on TV called FIXER-UPPER.
Put your REMODELING business in front of home owners
Over 20% of the people who love REACH magazine (305,000 people read and love REACH Magazine each month) are planning to do some home renovations or remodeling in the next six months according to THE MEDIA AUDIT. If you know someone with a home renovation or remodeling business that is not already over their head with work, or if they want to grow their business as the economy in Dayton continues to improve, have them give me a call.
In the mean time, pick your reason for updating and remodeling your home.
