Home Improvement Savings

We are in the midst of Fall and besides apple picking and pumpkin carving now is the perfect time for home improvements. Why is now the perfect time to think about that? It's because contractors and home improvement stores are hitting their slow season. This translates into deep discounts for you!
It's all a matter of supply and demand. The concept in economics is also true for the home improvement sector as well as retail stores. During the Spring and Summer the prices will be on average 30% higher combined with having to wait your turn. Everyone else will be lining up to have their home improvements done during the busy season and paying full price because of old habits. There is no incentive for the contractor to discount when they have a line of customers waiting. On the other hand, if you start now during the Fall and Winter season, you will save big!
During this time of year, for example, I often hear a local roofing company advertise a 50% discount because of the same principles I just described. The owner mentions that he wants to keep his workers busy all year round. There are many benefits, not only will you save an average of 30%; but you will be helping keep your local economy running. 
If you plan on selling your home next Spring or Summer, then you should consider getting your work completed now. Next year will be here soon and you could get overwhelmed with the myriad of your "to-do" list and sticker shock.
