Save Money with a Staycation While Making Home Improvements; A Great Way to Increase the Value of Your Home
May 6, 2011 - Author: Patricia F. Mitrano
Instead of the seven day, six night tryst at a tourist trap, homeowners can opt to invest in themselves and their communities with a staycation this summer. And as they are spending more time at home, what could be better than the enhanced lifestyle a home improvement or home renovation can provide.
Harvard's Joint Center for Housing Studies recent research estimates that Americans will spend close to $140 billion in remodeling and home improvements in the first half of 2011. Some projects give immediate enjoyment for the summer and as well as a return on investment in the long run. In fact, a University of Connecticut study states that regular maintenance increases a home value by approximately 1% a year.
“Now that we are into the warmer weather, homeowners are addressing issues resulting from the brutal winter we experienced in New Jersey” attests Mo Soliman of Curb Appeal Design. Soliman knows from his 27 year experience in the North Jersey community, addressing minor repairs now can save on big repairs in the future. “While we are at the job site is the perfect time to ask us about tackling those ‘someday’ projects” he adds. “Smart homeowners don’t wait until the major emergency but trudge along to maintain their home and enhance it for personal enjoyment.”
One of the “benefits” of the lingering recession is it makes for a great opportunity for homeowners to negotiate good deals. Working with Curb Appeal Design, a local contractor invested in the community, you can rest assured that you will get what you pay for and then some. Soliman knows his best work comes from referrals from not just satisfied clients, but ‘over’ satisfied clients. “My best advertising is a happy customer. I never leave a job site until I see a smile on my customer’s face.”
Investing in yourself and your home will ensure many memorable experiences without having to risk travel and deal with hassles. This year opt to increase home worth, community pride and infuse the local economy. Local contractors like Curb Appeal Design, that are invested in the community and stand by their work, are eager to strike a deal and are in fact experiencing an upsurge in activity. Don’t wait…book your staycation home remodeling plans today! And enjoy your vacation any time you choose throughout the year, since you own the resort.
A local home owner, Mr. Doc of Chatham, NJ, had Curb Appeal Designs do 2 projects which included a new driveway and a completely new backyard renovation which included landscaping design. Doc said, "We had Mo Soliman do 2 projects. One was to redo our driveway. We originally had an asphalt driveway. Mo put a beautiful Jersey curb and pavers. Looks really nice now. They did a great job with it. Second was that we completely redid our backyard. We had no patio. We had a bur plant that was a couple feet high. Mo came in and got a feel for what we were looking to do. Gave us some ideas and showed us pictures. He tore eveything out, used a nice organic shape, and put bluestone down. He put in some sandstone walls with nice block steps going up on each side."
"Mo was on time. His budget was dead on. If there was a change, he would have us approve it before proceeding. He worked with us on how we should do things. We were really pleased with his work. No pressure sales. Has a good eye for aesthesis. People who saw it liked it a lot. Mo was our point person. He would check by at critical milestones. His crew cleaned up everyday and put everything back."
