Jersey City, NJ -- Writing from the NARI Spring Business Meeting here, and the news seems to be mostly positive.
Most remodelers I've talked to are seeing business pick up, with much better first quarters than a year ago. It seems to be the case pretty much nationally, as I'm hearing it from remodelers from Washington, D.C., to Indianapolis to Dallas to Seattle and points between.
I'll be shooting some videos with some of those remodelers later this week, so keep an eye on HousingZone for those next week.
