Portland, Ore. (PRWEB) July 31, 2008
ReliableRemodeler.com, a nationwide home improvement and remodeling contractor matching service, is pleased to announce the results to their latest homeowner survey on attitudes towards the current housing market. While the housing market has been changing over the past year, many homeowners are choosing to continue with their home improvement plans or choosing to make smarter, yet perhaps smaller, investment choices.
When asked whether or not they were personally experiencing the affects of the changing housing market, 69 percent of homeowners stated that they were not feeling any impact, while 31 percent said they did experience some affects. Although claiming that the changing market had little to no affect on them, 51 percent of homeowners did believe that their home had dropped in value.

The economic forecast for the coming year did not deter homeowners who had remodeling plans already decided. 59 percent of homeowners stated they would not be changing their remodeling plans.
"While many homeowners see themselves as untouched by the changes in the housing market," said Eric Doebele, Founder of ReliableRemodeler.com, "the changes they are seeing in the market are causing them to shift their focus onto projects with a higher return on investment. By making smart investments, homeowners can still make improvements without as much risk."
For homeowners making changes to their remodeling plans, 14 percent said they were deciding to invest in smaller projects with a smaller price tag and seven percent were choosing to invest in projects that would bring the most return on investment. Homeowners did seem slightly wary of taking on large projects for their home, with 14 percent stating they would be putting large remodeling projects on hold.
