Can anyone put me (a reporter) in contact with homeowners who have opted to stay put and renovate/adapt rather than buy in this market?

Asked by Mhandley, Washington, DC Fri May 13, 2011

I'm a reporter at U.S. News & World Report about how homeowners are staying put and getting creative about making do with their existing homes instead of moving to a new house.

I am a residence designer working with contractors in the Atlanta metro area doing remodeling projects. I can put you in touch with a builder and our clients as well as other designers who are working with builders and clients in other areas of the city. Metro Atlanta is one of the hardest hit areas. Remodeling to improve where you live is just about the only option. This is also helping put homes in a better position to sell when the market improves.

Sure---In addition to real estate, I am the office manager for Wallace Custom Design & Renovation, a specialty renovation and remodeling company in Boise, Idaho. Boise ranks in the top 10 with the rate of foreclosures, with one in 20 homeowners in Ada County in foreclosure. So many people are opting to stay put rather than move.
