2014 Remodeling Industry Forecast from Harvard Housing; high demand for remodeling and home improvement work

Last week Kermit Baker from Harvard Housing Studies spoke at Eastern Mass NARI. He reported that in 2014 remodeling and home improvement projects will exceed the high water level reached in 2007. He said the remodeling and home improvement industry has almost fully recovered the losses from the 2008 recession.

Baker said the Boston market is one of the best in the country. With a highly educated and compensated workforce homeowner demand is high and we will likely grow another 9% this year. 

There is a post recession pent up high demand and impatient consumers who want what they want now. Many will choose contractors who can quickly satisfy their needs and wants and produce timely estimates and scope of work proposals. Taking too long will open the door for your competition.
