Buyers Will Get More Dream Home for their Money with Substantial Savings and Special Incentive Packages from Esteemed Vendor Partners

There are so many reasons to buy right now. The economy is improving, and the buyer’s market won’t last. Interest rates are showing signs of rising, but they are still historically low. This is really the perfect time to buy.

Toll Brothers, the nation’s leading builder of luxury homes, will host a National Dream Home Sales Event in all of its communities nationwide from April 9 to April 17, 2011. For this very special event, Toll Brothers has teamed up with its esteemed vendor partners to create amazing savings and incentive packages. This could be the best time yet to purchase a Toll Brothers dream home.

To take advantage of the special savings and incentives, buyers must make a deposit between April 9 and April 17, 2011 and sign an agreement of sale within 10 days of deposit. Sales and incentive packages will vary among communities.

“There are so many reasons to buy right now,” said Kira Sterling, Chief Marketing Officer. “The economy is improving, and the buyer’s market won’t last. Interest rates are showing signs of rising, but they are still historically low. This is really the perfect time to buy,” she added.

Throughout the event, representatives from TBI Mortgage Company, a subsidiary of Toll Brothers, will be on hand in many communities to offer mortgage guidance. TBI has an excellent selection of mortgage programs with still-low interest rates – including both fixed rate and adjustable rate mortgages. Home buyers should visit or call their community of interest to learn about specific details.

“With the fabulous deals being offered during this limited-time event, and with the incredible value, quality, and luxury that goes into every Toll Brothers home, this is an exceptional opportunity to get more dream home for your money,” said Ms. Sterling. “In a time when people are even more conscious of their builder‘s financial strength, they know that Toll Brothers will be around to complete their home and community,” she added.

Toll Brothers was ranked NUMBER ONE in 2011 and 2010 in Financial Soundness, Long-term Investment, and Quality of Product/Services in FORTUNE magazine‘s annual World’s Most Admired Companies survey in the home building category*.

Although Toll Brothers is probably best known for its expansive single-family and estate homes, the luxury builder offers an amazingly wide range of home designs including condominiums, carriage homes, and townhomes; and a vast palette of community types – such as active adult, resort, and urban through its Toll Brothers City Living® brand.

Toll Brothers began building its respected reputation in 1967, setting the standard for integrity, value, timeless design, and exceptionally high quality. For nearly forty-five years, the renowned luxury home builder has been considered one of the smartest and best-managed companies anywhere.

The incentives that will be offered at Toll Brothers communities from April 9 through April 17 will comprise a package of savings created for this event. For more information on specific community incentives being offered during this event, visit http://www.TollSalesEvent.com.

Home Remodel Numbers on the Rise- New Details

Of the 5,000 homeowners surveyed, 84% responded that they probably will start their remodel in the next 12 months. This compares with just 70% who reported they would in 2009 but still isn’t at the levels of 2006 – during the heyday for remodeling – when 90% of those participating in the survey stated they would remodel.

84% of homeowners responded that they probably will start their remodel in the next 12 months.

ABCD Publishing announced this week the release of RemodelOrMove.com’s U.S. Remodeling Sentiment Report for Spring 2011. Highlights of the report are further confirmation that spending on remodeling will continue to increase and that homeowners continue to minimize the scale of their remodeling plans.

Of the 5,000 homeowners surveyed, 84% responded that they probably will start their remodel in the next 12 months. This compares with just 70% who reported they would in 2009 but still isn’t at the levels of 2006 – during the heyday for remodeling – when 90% of those participating in the survey stated they would remodel.

While the confidence to remodel is increasing, the scale of the remodeling projects continues to be at the lowest levels recorded. Over the past two years homeowners have been reporting they plan to remodel or add on an average of just 2.6 rooms, compared to 3.4 in 2006.

Adding a bathroom continues to be the most popular remodeling project, with 57% of homeowners having this as part of their plans, up from 52% in 2006. Renovating kitchens and bathrooms is less popular, with 49% and 44% of homeowners, respectively, including these in their plans. Garage additions also are less popular compared to 2006, falling from 24% to 15% of respondents planning to include this in their project.

Bathroom additions can be easier to justify for budget minded homeowners when compared to bathroom and kitchen renovations. While bathroom additions can be expensive, they often are seen as a necessity for a growing family and can make better financial sense if the addition of the bathroom matches the average number of bathrooms for homes in the area. Kitchen remodels and bathroom renovations also can be justified financially, but the decision to remodel these rooms often is seen as a discretionary expenditure and can be postponed for a few years.

In addition to changes in the number of rooms and types of rooms that are being remodeled, the big change in this most recent report is the percentage of respondents describing the materials and fixtures that will be used in their remodel as “economy” (21%), compared to just 8% in 2006. This large increase further demonstrates that while the number of remodels is increasing, the scale and expense has yet to increase from the lows seen in the midst of the recession.
