With the beginning of summer comes the start of the home improvement rush, when homeowners take careful stock of the damage caused by previous seasons’ harsh elements. Now is the time to mend what needs mending before the challenges of the coming months arrive. If you have procrastinated things last spring, now is your time to catch up and consider summer as your “new beginning.” And in fact for some people, the sight of the high sun is their chance to start fresh and nothing quite says new beginning as a brand new home. If you’re planning to sell your home and help someone else get a fresh start, now is the most opportune time to talk to a contractor.
The mayor of Detroit, Mike Duggan, has set himself a monumental task: Sell the city to the rest of America. Not sell it, exactly, but rather convince other people to move there. He and fellow boosters say this once-bustling industrial metropolis does have a lot to offer.
Ted Serbinski, a partner at Detroit Venture Partners, moved to Detroit in 2011 from San Francisco. He read a lot of newspaper articles about crime in Detroit but wasn’t put off by them. “The surprising thing to me is how misleading all those headlines were,” he says.
“I call it the entrepreneurial gold rush and see more opportunities here than I ever did in San Francisco.”
It’s also possible to live large in Detroit. “The duplex house I lived in 35 years ago on Detroit’s east side is still a beauty,” says Ross Eisenbrey, vice president of the Economic Policy Institute and a resident of Washington, D.C.
It’s not too late to get in the swing of things as a home seller even though summer is well on its way. You just need to work with a trusty contractor to get things done in time.
