How's the Building in Your Neck of the Woods?

In Kansas City last month (January 2010), residential construction rose by 26%, but the biggest news, and not good news, is that all other forms of construction took a dive.

Non-residential construction in KC was down 59% last month, compared to January of 2009. Needless to say, that does not bode well for some of the bigger contractors who then send smaller crews on jobs the little contractors depend upon.

Let's get out there and get this thing talked up. A rise in the economy depends upon new construction starts. It's like a house built of cards, one card falls over knocking down the rest...until one card simply refuses to fall. That stops the collapse.

Get out there and be the card that refuses to fall. Talk it up. Encourage your clients to build or remodel now.
