Until now, finding the right home service professional has been a difficult and sometimes impossible process
Salt Lake City, Utah (PRWEB) January 15, 2008
AmericaHomeToday.com today announced the launch of its Web site, a localized resource and rating community connecting homeowners and home service professionals. With over 400 Utah-based home service professionals already participating, this easy-to-use service helps homeowners find the right help using specific search criteria and homeowner reviews.
The average homeowner will spend more than $2,300 annually on home improvement projects, and construction begins on over 2 million new homes each year. This level of construction and remodeling activity establishes a high demand for a variety of home service professionals, yet there is a disconnect in the marketplace between consumers and service professionals.
AmericaHomeToday.com will help users design, build, find, fund and fix-up their homes by providing resources in four categories: contractors, mortgage lenders, real estate agents and suppliers. The service includes the following features:
- Ratings and reviews of home service professionals
- Home service professional listings by geographic area
- Questions and answers provided by home service professionals
- Housing market articles and news
- Forums to join homeowners and home service professionals in an online conversation
- Private homeowner profiles to easily reference saved information
- Public home service professional profiles that include pictures and service details
For current and future homeowners, AmericaHomeToday.com is free in exchange for basic contact information. AmericaHomeToday.com will allow them to get answers to home-related questions, rate and review home service professionals and build the right team to get the home they want. In addition, homeowner profiles allow users to return to America Home Today.com to quickly find a history of the home service professionals they have contacted and used in the past.
"Until now, finding the right home service professional has been a difficult and sometimes impossible process," said Zak Nugent, CEO of AmericaHomeToday.com. "Now, instead of asking friends and looking in the phone book, AmericaHomeToday.com makes it easy for homeowners to find the home service professional that meets their exact needs."
Eighty percent of consumers do at least some of their searching for a new home online, but home service professionals are not devoting enough of their resources to online media. Now they can grow their business and reach motivated homeowners through AmericaHomeToday.com. Home service professionals listed on the site also increase their credibility by adhering to a Pledge of Excellence that includes timeliness, honesty and quality.
AmericaHomeToday.com is a highly-targeted, localized service. The company is launching in the greater Salt Lake City area, with plans to expand into additional metropolitan areas. For more information, visit AmericaHomeToday.com.
