LocalQuoter, the UK-based price comparison specialist, is looking to make inroads into the American home improvement market in 2010 by establishing itself in Florida.

LocalQuoter, The UK-Based Price Comparison Specialist, Is Looking To Make Inroads Into The American Home Improvement Market

The company, which was set up in England in 2008, has just expanded to serve the whole of America, and intends to build on its reputation for finding the best deals for customers wanting sunrooms, conservatories, sidings, pergolas and replacement windows and doors.

Through an extensive network of suppliers and fitters across the US, the company puts customers in touch with the best tradespeople, whatever the job. LocalQuoter America has access to over 4,000 companies specialising in windows and doors and allows people to choose between 1,500 conservatory experts.

LocalQuoter’s presence in America will also allow customers access to more than 2,500 firms involved in building sunrooms. Having a sunroom adds a new dimension to your home visually, provides a great living space where you can relax all-year-round, and can significantly add to the value of your property when the time comes to sell up.

Another benefit of using an online comparison service is that once one quote form has been filled out, no more work is required on the part of the customer. They can simply sit back and let LocalQuoter do the hard work and find the best company to carry out the project such as sunroom quotes, windows and Pergolas as well.

Les Yates, boss of LocalQuoter America, said by going through the company’s brand new US website people can obtain no obligation quotes from reputable companies who have been accepted onto an approved suppliers list.

He said: “We’re delighted to have been able to expand our business to serve the whole of America and are confident of being able to replicate the success of LocalQuoter in the UK.

“Often when homeowners are looking to have work carried out on their properties they worry about ending up with a rogue trader. The beauty of a service like LocalQuoter is that every single one of our suppliers is vetted and has to conform to a certain set of criteria.

“We believe there is a gap in the market and people across the United States will welcome the arrival of a company that can act as a reliable and trustworthy source, providing them with honest, local tradespeople who don’t charge the earth.

“Our massive database of contacts across America’s home improvement industry allows us to ensure our customers get to choose from the best deals available and we can’t wait to help people start saving.”

Letting Web Business Leads the Way with iPhone Technology has become the first letting only UK property website to introduce an iPhone application with a Global Positioning System (GPS) to identify the user’s current location in relation to available properties to rent in that area.

Users of the Letting Web iPhone App can also view a photo slideshow and the property’s particulars on their iPhone, call the agent with an enquiry, forward details to friends or e-mail immediately from their phone so there’s nothing for them to remember later. For the agent, the chances of receiving an enquiry are greatly improved as it all happens instantly.

Richard Matthews, Marketing Manager at, said:

“As a technology business we are focused on providing the most innovative and practical solutions for our letting agent customers. As many home hunters use iPhones, we decided to invest in the technology to make searching for a property easier and faster. This should also translate to higher enquiries for our member firms.

“We tested the application with a group of home hunters and almost 400 users downloaded it during testing. Since then the app has received some very favourable reviews on Apple’s iTunes website. This technology is now available to view all of the 5,500 Scottish properties to rent each month on“.

Lettingweb’s statistics for 2008 and 2009 based on over 5,000 properties every month, show the supply of rented accommodation in the first half of both years outstripped demand making it a tenants market. The reverse happened in the second half of both years with demand being greater than the supply of rented properties. However, industry experts believe rental prices are going to increase in 2010 due to a drop off in supply suggesting a landlord market for the beginning of the year which would go against the trend of the past two years.

Mr Matthews added:

“If demand outstrips supply and the market gets competitive for the best properties, home hunters with our iPhone application will be able to access details of rented properties on location quicker which gives them an edge over others using more traditional methods.” works with the majority of letting agents in Scotland to provide highly sought after flats to rent in Edinburgh and flats to rent in Glasgow, but it also has properties to rent in other UK cities including Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle and has recently added Wales and Northern Ireland to its portfolio.

Popular Interior Design Blog ‘Homes Suite Homes’ Provides Inspiration For 2010

With the turn of the New Year comes the chance to give your much loved humble abode a fresh new look. The year 2010 is set to see Homes Suite Homes blog continue to supply the best advice and inspiration tips and trick to its loyal audience, making their journey towards creating their perfect home more exciting and adventurous.

Due to the current economic and environmental climate restrictions, more and more homeowners will be taking on the task of simple home projects to save money and improve their current space. Equally, others are sprucing up in preparation for placing their home on the market.

Regardless of the purpose, a fresh coat of paint remains one of the most economical ways to accomplish all three. No matter what paint color is used, homeowners continue to strive for comfortable, tranquil home environments.

The minimalist look is always a great look and it does not require a lot of effort in order to get it just right. We all like the idea of spending money on extravagant items now and again, and with the abundance of online home decor blogs there is a huge amount of style inspiration and design tips to be had. With all of these ideas at our finger tips, there are numerous ways in which we can add a touch of style to our homes with minimal effort.

Black walls for example strike many people as somewhat Gothic and dark slightly cold even, nevertheless innovative British architect Sir Edwin Lutyens was a fan of this look for 2010. He likes setting off the darkness of walls with crisp white woodwork and the occasional wild-card accent such as a selection of token sofas. You can heighten entrance hall ways and living rooms with semi-gloss black walls, a chalk-white vaulted ceiling, doors, and baseboards. Colour is definitely still an option, but keep it to a few token pieces For example, a deep red sofa would look great within the black and white living room setting. If you are dealing with smaller spaces remember that deep, dramatic colours don’t always make a little room look minuscule. Actually, dark walls can either make an interior seem larger by diminishing its boundaries or give it a sense of cosiness, and if you are lucky sometimes both.

Many are unsure about how to decorate their living room, but it is easy to get ideas f r o m magazines, websites and blogs such as Homes Suite Homes can also help you decide. Put together a scrap book, as this will help you plan your overall desired look. Being bold will be essential. If there is a lack of creativity it is worth trying to make the biggest piece of furniture the focal point of the room and keep everything else simple. If you are looking for value for money, put good effort into comparing prices but try not to forget that quality is important too. Accessories can make a huge impact, good and bad! For a smaller room, try the minimalise approach otherwise you can end up with the ‘cluttered’ look!
