Home Improvement Trends in 2011 (Infographic)

I know its been a while since I’ve written, mostly because I’m nearing the end of semester in my last year of university.  I came across an infographic I thought readers would enjoy.  I’ve been trying to make myself one of these for a while but my graphic design skills are laughable.  Enjoy!

I expecially liked “building new decks and porches will become more popular in 2011” and “Luxury rennovations will take a backseat in 2011 as homeownerspursue projects that provide the biggest bang for the buck in terms of increasing their home’s value.”  Nows the time to get a new deck: “adding a wood deck or doing a mid- to high-end siding replacement is the least expensive, but most lucrative, way to increase the selling price for many homes” from Cost vs. Value Report (a combined effort by Remodeling magazine and REALTOR® Magazine). 

Great ROI and low cost (risk)- sounds like something you’d look for in a retirement fund?  Because it’s an investment.  Call us for a quote on a brand new deck today.
