The South Florida residential real estate market continues to strengthen as home prices rise and inventory shrinks. The optimism in the real estate and home improvement industries is reflected in the surge of activity and consumer interest. This momentum is forecasted to continue through third and fourth quarters, which is good news to the home improvement industry converging on Miami Beach at the Miami Home Design and Remodeling Show Labor Day weekend. The annual event opens to the public and the trade August 30 – September 3 at the Miami Beach Convention Center.
The National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) reports that economic recovery in the remodeling industry is gaining speed. This should hold true in South Florida where rising home prices and lower interest rates encourage consumers to begin long-awaited projects. La Cuisine & Clark Appliances, sponsor of the Culinary Stage at the Home Show, has seen record numbers of consumers requesting quotes on remodeling projects. Bob Clark, owner of La Cuisine & Clark Appliances, agrees that there is “a definite uptick in consumer confidence and a willingness to commit and invest in home improvements projects again.”
Each Labor Day weekend, the Miami Beach Convention Center is transformed into a one-stop, interactive marketplace featuring thousands of products for home improvement, remodeling, interior design updates, outdoor improvements and enhanced South Florida lifestyles. The show provides a dynamic environment that brings consumers together with the experts and businesses that represent them.
Homeowners looking for ideas will find thousands among the displays featured in the nationally recognized event. In addition to a wide range of products on display, the show also offers consumers the opportunity to talk one-on-one with professionals. Special show pricing offered throughout the five day event is an added incentive.
The show will also offer attendees entertaining activities at the event including the “Artist Encounter” interactive art show, featuring South Florida artists at work on multi-media pieces in progress, daily cooking shows with guest chefs from around South Florida, original designer room settings on display, wine tastings, free seminars, celebrity guest speakers and more.
