Logan, UT (PRWEB) October 22, 2009
Despite some growth in certain states, the housing market as a whole remains in a slump throughout the United States. It's a buyers market which means sellers have to go the extra mile to make their home more attractive and some homeowners opt to remodel rather than move.
"We expected quite a decrease in sales as a result of the recession, and we've definitely seen that in new build business. However, as more people are remodeling their current homes or updating to sell, we've seen an increase in remodel traffic," says Direct Door Hardware sales manager Jake England. "Home is a central part of the American lifestyle so if people are unable to move onward and upward like so many have been able to do before the recession, I think home owners tend to improve the home they are in."
For some the improvements are for the intent to sell in a tough market, for others it's the realization that it might be a while before their local market rebounds. DirectDoorHardware.com's broad product line accommodates homeowners during new construction or remodel projects.
