Home improvement spending increases

Observation:  Today’s Marketing Daily cites a report from NPD indicating the home improvement category enjoyed an 11% increase in spending over the past 12 months.  The story also mentions that online spending in the category is up dramatically.  Click here to see the story.

Implications:   The increase in spending in the category makes a lot of sense.  With so many folks upside-down (in terms of home equity) and unable to move into their next dream home… they’re doing what it takes to make their current house the home of their dreams.
