In February 2013, the national real estate market showed a marked rise in existing home sales from the previous year. February was representative of a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.98 million sales of existing single-family, condominium, townhome and co-op homes – up nearly half a million at 460,000 units from the year before1. Regionally, the South is leading the pack with a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.72 million sales of existing homes as of February 2013 – up 190,000 units from the year before. The West and Mid-West are tied for second with 1.06 million sales of existing homes and the Northeast is in a distant third with 520,000 sales of existing homes as of February 20132.
With the sale of existing homes on the rise, chances are – demand for reputable and skilled remodeling companies will follow suit. Often, with the purchase of an existing home comes the need for anything from basic home maintenance to major renovations. For instance, a house that was purchased out of foreclosure may have fallen into a state of disrepair and could require a few fixer-upper tactics in order to make it home sweet home for the family who will be assuming ownership. On the other hand, even a home that has been well-loved and excellently maintained may be an excellent candidate for a home renovation in order to make it reflect the needs, wishes and collective personality of the new homeowners.
