Cincinnati, Ohio (PRWEB) March 10, 2014
Now is the time to be your own boss in the home improvement industry says Jim Hunter, House Doctor's Handyman Franchise President. With data showing new single-family homes selling well in January and the home remodeling market forecasting continued strong growth Hunter is bullish on seizing business opportunities in the industry.
A recent Hanley Wood's study that talked about consecutive quarters of growth led to Hunter commenting, "So far growth trend forecasts are proving to be accurate and good new home sales figures in January, will help that continue. This continual growth in remodeling is exciting. It means if you have been thinking of being your own boss and starting a business in this industry, now may be the time to make it happen." Hunter continued, "We are a good measure of the market as many of our franchisees offer customers both handyman services and remodeling services. We are indeed seeing increased activity now we are coming out of the tough Winter. We expect the momentum to continue through 2014 and beyond:"
According to the Remodeling Futures Program at the Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University the ongoing growth in home prices, housing starts, and existing home sales is helping to create that increase in home improvement activity. Their forecast for double digit growth in remodeling the first quarter is proving to be accurate.The increased activity in the housing market means new home buyers invariably have a need for remodels and handyman services. Kitchen and bathroom improvements and needed home repairs and maintenance remain the most popular with homeowners.
Hunter continued, "This is all great news for companies like House Doctors today however future opportunities could be even more exciting. Our market, property repair maintenance and improvement, is here to stay and as aging baby boomers become more confident in the economy more and more are starting to hire companies like ours for bigger ticket projects."
