Latest employment numbers show that Phoenix landscapers among the top contractors that have felt the effects of a poor economy in Phoenix. Landscaping In Phoenix in a very slow spot at the moment.
Online PR News – 25-February-2010 – – Being the 5th largest metropolitan city, Phoenix has felt the financial crunch as much as any city in America if not the most. Phoenix is a city that has been fueled by home improvement and construction related industry for years. As homeowners have tightened their belts, the first felt hurt has been on the contractors. With that being said, it has left Phoenix in a very tight spot. It seems as though the construction related fields were the first to feel the effects of the recession starting over 24 months ago, and they very well could be the last of world to come back to a strong industry.
Andres, from Allscapes Landscaping had this to say about the economy, "We had the chance to grow as fast as we wanted. We could not handle the work load and demands of the Phoenix homeowners. Since 2006 that has been nothing but a dream to look forward to."
It is unfortunate to see so many contractors left without work and with out the chance to take their professional trade to the next level. There is one company that is very optimistic of the growth in the contractor field. Localwork.com http://www.localwork.com, is a new listing source that contractors can be visible to homeowners. CEO of Localwork, Ryan Naylor is seeing business pick up in the construction market. "In the last 4 months we have been tracking the trends of homeowners and what they are searching for when looking for contractors. Our reports show that there has been an increase over 20% for search terms relating to Phoenix contractors. This is a strong indication that homeowners are beginning to show signs of being ready to buy home improvement services."
Finding companies that are geared towards helping contractors get work is hard to find. Localwork.com seems to do just that. They have a good reputation with Phoenix homeowners as a reliable place to find quality contractors in the Phoenix market.
As 2010 starts out strong for Phoenix landscapers, the hope from Ryan and Andres is mutual that homeowners will feel the relief that worst of the financial storm is over and it is a great year to jump into home improvement again.
