The Homeowners Last Hurrah
The value of the condo you bought two years ago is racing George Bushs approval ratings to the bottom. Hurricanes are churning in the Atlantic, and buyers are scattering like pit bulls at a Vick family barbecue. Looks like youll be staying put for a while. But dont panic. Theres a way to add property value in these times: remodel! Nows as good a time as ever to keep up with the Joneses as the Miami Home Design and Remodeling Show takes over the Miami Beach Convention Center this Labor Day weekend.
Brought to you by veteran show producers Larry Perl and Steve Plotkin, the show fills 230,000 square feet of the convention center with an international showcase of interior design, furniture, and accessories -- as well as a variety of home improvements for indoors and out. Celebrity Wanda Colón, of HGTVs 24 Hour Design, will offer show-goers simple tips for giving their homes the star treatment during complimentary seminars Sunday and Monday. So if youre looking to ditch that recessed white sink (soooo last century) or the linoleum floor, head to Miami Beach and learn how to rejuvenate your dwelling. The show is open today from 6:00 to 10:30 p.m., and the renovating fun wont stop until Tuesday night at 10:30. For more information, call 305-667-9299 or visit www.homeshowspecials.com.
