The IRS is already reporting a decline in the number of people receiving tax refunds in 2019 compared to last year. According to Forbes, taxpayers are seeing smaller refunds than they originally expected to receive. Any time there are changes to tax laws, someone will be upset. However, these limited tax refunds could be impacting your customers’ plans for upcoming home improvement projects.
Many people use their tax refunds to make much needed home improvements. And with that income being less than expected, it could alter their construction plans. That’s why offering financing to your customers is more critical than ever before. Help your customers understand that they don’t need to wait to complete their next project.
What are some home improvement trends for 2019 your customers might be considering? Be sure to check it out to anticipate your customers’ needs.
If there are fewer cash buyers in the market this year, you may need to rely on financing to keep busy. Our core product is a standard installment loan, which features affordable monthly payments and competitive interest rates for prime credit customers (at no cost to the contractor). This is typically a better option than Same-as-Cash financing that other lenders offer because, unless the customer has the available cash, the can is only kicked down the road for a few months.
Your customers don’t have to wait until next year’s tax refund to complete their long-awaited home improvement project. They can still build their dream home in 2019! But it’s your job as a contractor to show them how it’s possible.
