How to get a good deal on remodeling projects

The daily reminder that now is not the time to sell your house is prompting many homeowners to take a fresh look at their surroundings and remodel instead. According to a nationwide, commissioned poll of Angie's List members, 50 percent say now is a good time to invest in their current home.

And in a recent poll of 150 highly rated service providers on Angie’s List, three out of four said they’re lowering prices, some as much as 30 percent to 40 percent.

A little negotiation can go a long way in getting the best price possible for your remodel. And while the current market is great for bargain hunters, it's critical that your focus be on more than just cost. Finding the right remodeling contractor for your particular job is still the most important decision you’ll make as a homeowner.
