It is very positive to see that home owners are beginning to spend money on their homes once again. It could be a sign that we are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
London, UK (PRWEB) October 25, 2009
British home owners are spending money on their properties despite the recession still looming, according to Ratepeople.com, the UK's largest match making service for home improvers and recommended tradesmen.
Recently released sales figures signify that sales of home improvement goods have increased by 3.3 per cent when compared with the same time last year, indicating that despite figures still dropping in other sectors, home owners are still keen to ensure that their property provides a relaxing retreat.
Further reasons for the increase can be linked to the banks being more willing to offer more money to borrowers and in turn, consumer confidence returning. Consequently, houses are once again selling - but still at a very measured rate. As a result, it is important that one home stands out from another to increase the likelihood of a sale.
Ottokar Rosenberger, Director of Sales and Marketing for Ratedpeople.com, commented: "It is very positive to see that home owners are beginning to spend money on their homes once again. It could be a sign that we are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel."
