Demographic trends, according to Thomson, make remodeling a very relevant topic for on-the-air discussion.   Thomson said, “Two trends are making remodeling a hot topic with consumers.  First is the overall real estate market, which is the strongest it’s been in years.   A hot market, combined with rising prices have resulted in consumers, especially baby-boomers approaching or in retirement, opting to remodel their current home rather than deal with the uncertainties of selling and moving.  Consequently, there is a large increase in consumers wanting to do major renovation on their homes. ”   As in all consumer transactions that involve large amounts of money, Thomson says, vetting a prospective remodeling company is vital.   He added, “Elite Remodeling represents best practices in all areas of remodeling.   From managing the detail of a project budget to dealing with municipality permitting to quality craftsmanship, Elite has set and maintains a very high standard.”

As with all Consumer Team topics, Thomson says the goal is to educate consumers and connect them to the best contractors in North Texas.   He said, “An educated consumer is in a much better position to make good financial as well as design decisions and we’ll address that in our on-air segments with John Todd.  Beyond education, we’ll be connecting Consumer Team listeners with John and his team of professionals at Elite Remodeling so they can get the job done right.”
