The South Florida Fair has announced it will be hosting it’s first-ever Home Improvement & More Show in the Expo Center at the end of October.

The Fair said they created the event because people are spending more time in their homes because of the coronavirus pandemic.

“Given what we’ve been experiencing since March with this pandemic, there has never been such a high demand for at-home enhancements in kitchens and baths, lawn and landscape, décor and home office ideas,” said Vicki Chouris, president & CEO of the South Florida Fair & Palm Beach County Expositions.

There are more than 60 vendors slated to be at the event that include categories such as windows, kitchen, bath, patios, landscaping, and more.

| The Columbus Dispatch

The long-time host of “This Old House,” the ground-breaking home-improvement television show, will appear — virtually — at the Fall Dispatch Home & Garden Show on Saturday.

Kevin O’Connor, who has been host of the PBS show since 2003, last appeared at the Columbus show two years ago. On that occasion he was here in person, of course.

“I do a lot of home shows, but this is my first virtual one,” said O’Connor, 52. 

“But I think people understand why that’s necessary this year, and know exactly what to expect.”

Because of the pandemic, this year’s home and garden show will be online and on demand. The show will be live online Thursday through Saturday and the online exhibit hall will remain open through the end of the month.

Register for the show at DispatchHomeandGardenShow.com. Guests who pre-register by Wednesday will receive one

Affordability Expectations Show No Improvement among Home Buyers

Posted on

Facebooktwitterpinterestlinkedinmail

While home buyers report slightly more optimistic expectations for future housing availability (see earlier post) in the first quarter of 2020, there is no commensurate improvement in their outlook for affordability. In fact, 78% say they can afford fewer than half the homes available in their markets, the same share as a year earlier. This in turn means that only 23% of buyers can afford half or more of the homes for-sale in their markets, essentially unchanged from a year earlier (22%).

At least 75% of buyers in each of the four generations can afford fewer than half the homes for sale where they live. Geographically, 74% to 80% of buyers in every region of the country say they can afford under half of the homes available in their areas.
