CHICAGO, IL -  In a month long website survey conducted by the Better Business Bureau serving Chicago and northern Illinois (BBB) consumers say, this year, they will spend money on home improvements and making major purchases for their homes.

 

More than 42-percent of the poll respondents visiting the website indicate spending money on their homes as a top priority this coming year.  A desire to “get away” polled high, with 23-percent stating they plan to take a major vacation in 2012. Purchasing a new car was on many respondents’ minds with 15-percent saying this was a top priority this year.

 

“These buying plans bode well for builders, contractors and home appliance retailers,” said Steve J. Bernas, president and CEO of the Better Business serving Chicago and northern Illinois. “Consumers looking to spend their money wisely for home improvements can obtain a free quote on a variety of services from the Better Business Bureau at www.bbb.org

 

The survey also noted 19-percent of respondents are holding off major purchases or home improvements until the economy improves. 

 

Bernas continues, “Whether consumers are looking to spend money on their homes or a vacation, the BBB suggests they check out our free Business Reviews before putting money down.”
