About Pricing Nation
The purchase of a home is historically the largest investment one will make in their life. However, due to recent volatility from the Credit and Housing Crisis, home buyers no longer believe that home values are always guaranteed to increase.

To ensure that buyers and sellers are confident in their investment decisions, Pricing Nation has developed a portfolio of regression based models that forecast housing price changes at the MSA, zip, and house level.  These models are highly statistically significant as they were built using local housing demand/supply and macroeconomic data from the last ten years, which saw extreme upward and downward movements. Of particular note is that Pricing Nation’s forecasting model would have anticipated the severe downturn in Boston MSA home values in August 2006, a full twelve months before the actual downturn hit in August 2007, and 16 months before the U.S. officially entered a recession*.

Pricing Nation is offering its individual home value forecast reports for an introductory price of $19.99 per home (regular price $49.99 per home).  The forecast for each home includes “ The Home Investment Report Card” (sample below), which provides the future change in home value, grades the local and national factors impacting home value, and outlines the significance of each factor toward future changes. “The Home Investment Report” card is designed to be easy to use for all homebuyers and sellers as they make one of the biggest decisions of their lives.

Pricing Nation has initially launched its product in the Boston MSA and is expanding its offerings to other cities in the near future.

Rural Retreat Depot Foundation Secures Long Term Lease

The Rural Retreat Depot, made famous by O. Winston Link in his 1957 photographs entitled “Birmingham Special Gets the High Ball at Rural Retreat” and “The Pelican at Rural Retreat, VA”, sits on land belonging to the Town of Rural Retreat, VA. The Rural Retreat Depot Foundation is raising money to purchase and restore the depot building, and now it has firm ground to stand on.

“Signing this lease for the depot land was critical to our efforts to not only raise money for the building purchase, but also to procure grants for the renovation” said Charles Miller, President of the Depot Foundation; “The Foundation greatly appreciates this valuable contribution by the Town, and we hope it will encourage donations towards our building fund”.

The Town of Rural Retreat grew up around this Virginia Tennessee Railroad Depot in the 1850’s, effectively relocating a village that had formed a few miles away along the Great Road of Virginia. The original depot was burned during the Civil War, and was replaced by the present structure in 1866. The depot operated as a Norfolk and Western passenger station and Railway Express Office for many years but was closed by Norfolk Southern when it ceased passenger operations. The depot building was sold to a private party but the land under the depot was donated to the Town by the Norfolk Southern Railroad. The Depot Foundation now has agreement for the land and hopes to raise the necessary funds to buy the building by October of this year.

Government Will Relax Planning Rules on Home Extensions in a Bid to Boost the Economy

For a limited time only, government will free up planning rules for extensions, in order to reinvigorate the construction industry and boost the British economy.

The new planning legislation, or Permitted Development Rights, will allow people to build larger extensions on their houses without planning permission. The new home extensions can reach a size of 8 metres for detached homes and 6 metres for others. The rulings apply to commercial properties also, with shops and offices allowed to grow to the edge of their premises; 100 square metres for shops and 200 square metres for industrial units.

With the recession ongoing, the newly reshuffled coalition government are looking for ways to ease the collective financial woe. These ways will include making it easier than ever to enjoy your dream home extension, and also making it more affordable to get onto the housing ladder. The latter could also bolster the construction industry by providing the impetus to build more homes.

This fresh plan of attack comes after the construction industry has performed particularly badly during the recession. But by cutting through considerable red tape, now is arguably as good a time as ever to extend your home and make space for a growing family or a better lifestyle, without having to move.

Companies such as Simply Extend, one of London’s premier extension providers, can deliver modern and high quality kitchen extensions, bathroom extensions and much more in just a matter of weeks. If you have wanted to extend your home, now really is a fantastic time to do it.

Robert Wood, Director at Simply Extend commented on the new development, “Quite often when undertaking any house extension project the planning permission and approval process can be a stumbling block and can significantly impact on homeowners’ plans and aspirations for their home.

“The relaxation of planning rules for extensions will certainly interest a number of homeowners who may have considered making a worthwhile addition to their home’s space, especially as growing families look to develop their current property as opposed to relocating, which isn’t always possible for everyone”.

Robert added, “At Simply Extend we welcome the new rulings as it ultimately means greater convenience for our clients. We deal with the planning process on their behalf, but the ruling makes this easier to complete than before, allowing our expert builders to begin work sooner”

Simply Extend are London’s premier extensions company who offer an all-in-one extensions service, with efficient project management and expert London builderscompleting a wide range of household extensions such as bathroom or kitchen extensions in London as well as flat refurbishments and other services available on the website

Will you take advantage of the all new Permitted Development Rights, and transform your home?

London Family Bathroom Transformed in Just 3 Weeks Thanks to Simply Extend

Some might believe that extending and updating their bathroom would be a costly and time consuming process, but with the help of Simply Extend, London’s premier extensions company, one family from Lower Mortlake Road in Richmond gained their dream bathroom extension in just 3 weeks. Better yet, they enjoyed a fantastic price.

Simply Extend provide a practical and cost effective alternative to moving house, for families which need more space but don’t want to go elsewhere. From beautiful open plan kitchen extensions to rear extensions or entirely new bathrooms, Simply Extend takes the hassle and stress out of the building process and provides families with lovely new spaces to call home.

When Jon and Charlotte decided to transform their bathroom, they knew exactly who to turn to. Their detailed brief included the removal of existing bathroom entirely, the installation of a new boiler concealed behind bespoke cupboards made by Simply Extend, the installation of a high quality standing bath, shower and toilet, and much more. The entire new space would also have to be completely decorated from scratch, and the time period agreed within which to complete the job was just three weeks.

The experienced team at Simply Extend handles every aspect of a project from the planning stage, beginning from the initial site survey which is carried out completely free; along with a no obligation quote. All planning, structural calculations and development was carried out on the clients behalf and they were kept up to date of the progress made throughout. This served to ensure a stress free and simplistic project.

Simply Extend also boasts its own team of expert, in-house workers along with efficient project managers, and the guys combined to create a stunning and modern new bathroom, which was delivered on time and on budget. But the service didn’t end there, because Simply Extend remain on hand after the end of the job to deal with any after care services the client might need.

The family was understandably delighted, and said “The finish was excellent and we were very happy with the service provided by the management team. We are particularly pleased with the after-sales service Simply Extend provides and have found them to be very good at adhering to their 10 year Guarantee. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Simply Extend to our friends and family”.
