After a quick chat with a contractor, Bobbi and Buddy were shocked to find that costs for labor and materials have doubled over the last 10 years. Today Joe, Bobbi and Buddy look to a article that cites four major reasons you should seriously consider remodeling now instead of putting it off for next year. Specific topics include:

  • Consumer confidence is rising along with the willingness to spend and invest
  • Financing is still affordable
  • National shortage of construction workers
  • Material costs continue to rise internationally
