A recent study by The Harvard University Joint Center for Housing Studies revealed that though new home construction has declined substantially, remodeling projects are on the rise. The study estimates that $700 billion will be spent in 2008 on remodeling. There is good evidence that the high-end market, in particular, is still very strong and worth pursuing if you have the opportunity.
Tips on Improving your business
Give superior quality and service.
Make sure that you are installing products that the customer will love from day one. Set realistic deadlines and meet them, but also plan and be prepared for unexpected issues. Remember: A customer’s recommendation is an excellent way to generate more business!
Spend money and time wisely.
Increase spending on sales and marketing and reduce overhead and operational costs through outsourcing and other means.
Look for the smaller jobs, too.
Homeowners desiring a new kitchen are willing to consider a cabinet refacing. Today’s small customer may become your largest customer tomorrow.
Value your customer.
Develop mutually beneficial relationships. Show an interest in their business. Listen to their needs. Understanding customer needs helps you develop new markets.
A final word of advice: Be very careful with the credit that you issue! In this economy, bad credit decisions can be disastrous to your business.
