It is summertime and many have put home improvement projects on hold until September for completion in time for the holidays. People are in vacation mode and busy keeping up with the kids on summer break. June-August are usually slower months in the home improvement business and a good time to save if you book projects now. So if you have projects planned for the holidays why not celebrate Christmas in July and save?
In the good ole days before the economy tanked, the slower times were welcomed as a way for trade professionals to catch their breath and recuperate from the busy months prior. Times have changed. In the Spring we experienced a brief reminder of more lucrative times but then as if on cue, June hit and we have been slow. The projects on the books were put on hold until September and customers visiting our design studio express an interest in having work done before the holidays.
So I got to thinking why not offer incentives to book projects planned for the holidays early and give discounts to save on home improvements? Contractors and trade professionals would rather be working than not and often offer discounts to book jobs as filler work. Companies that sell home furnishings are also in the mood to bargain. They are motivated to turn inventory over and generate cash to invest in new furnishings for the busy decorating months ahead.
Consider celebrating Christmas in July to save on home improvements! Stop by and visit our cooperative of trade professionals. We can set you up on an easy-pay plan or for services like painting and flooring, we offer a 12-month same as cash financing option as well.
