Denver, CO (PRWEB) February 7, 2006 –-
BestContractors.com, an online resource designed to improve interaction between homeowners and residential service professionals, announced today it is adding Minnesota and North Carolina to its service area that already includes Colorado.
“Our goal is to add a minimum of two major markets to our geographical service area each month,” said CEO Mark Henninger. “After thorough research, we’ve determined that the Twin Cities and Raleigh were great fits for our growth plans.”
The company looks for markets with strong home renovation trends. This includes urban areas with older neighborhoods undergoing revitalization. Communities in the northeast and upper Midwest have the strongest demand for home improvement and renovation according to the Harvard University Joint Center for Housing Studies.
“We want to manage our initial phase of growth by extending into markets similar in size to Denver,” adds Henninger. “We’ve obtained a strong understanding of the demographics of metropolitan areas like Denver and Raleigh. We’ve also learned a great deal about how far out a contractor will drive for business and those contractors who work renovation neighborhoods versus those that prefer outlying new housing areas.”
BestContractors.com, found at http://www.BestContractors.com, launched in October of last year starting with metro Denver but then rapidly grew to include the entire state of Colorado. The company advertises through local media, Comcast cable and Internet search engines, such as Google, Yahoo and MSN. Homeowners submit their home improvement or remodeling projects through the site for free, view detailed profiles, photos, and ratings, and then select up to three contractors to bid on the project. Contractors support the site with membership fees and must meet strict eligibility requirements.
BestContractors.com is an Internet resource for homeowners seeking contractors to do remodeling, repairs and maintenance to their homes. The company will announce additional market expansion during the first quarter of 2006.
