Fine Homebuilding

Home improvement sales going through the roof
USA Today
“The home-related sales stand out in an otherwise underwhelming shopping season, says IBM global strategy program director Jay Henderson. He says consumers are “hunkering down” in the still-struggling housing market.”

Housing Market Displays New Vigor as Prices Rise
Wall Street Journal
“Home prices notched their strongest year-to-date gains since 2005, climbing 5.9% through July and signaling the housing market’s steady trudge toward recovery.”

The rise of Pinterest
Custom Builder
“Just when you thought you had tackled Facebook’s new timeline and Twitter’s new interface, along comes a new social media platform to pin down: Pinterest. The fastest-growing website of all time, Pinterest operates as a giant scrolling pinboard of categorized pictures where you can “pin” images you upload, find on other Pinterest boards, or appear on websites with “Pin It” buttons. Visitors to the site can “like” and comment on pictures as well.”
