“We have a lot of friends who have put their house up for sale and they do all of the updates that they wish they would have done,” said Christine. “We’ve done all the updates to our house now we kind of don’t want to move.” That’s the flip side of the remodel quandary, the Amundson’s will stay, but they’ve done the work, are now building equity on that work and certainly are fully ready to sell when they decide to make that move. “We’re now in a seller’s market,” said Jurek.

While the demand is high for remodeling that can also create some problems because there simply aren’t enough subcontractors available in the city to get all the jobs done. “It is a trickle-down effect. Things get pushed back or delayed because someone is on this job, can’t get there and that only progresses throughout the summer and gets worse and worse,” Seykora said. And that means, as these homeowners found out, when you’re looking to hire a remodeling contractor, you’ll have to be patient. “I called a few different people and I think we waited for a few months to even get them over and see what we could have done. I’m not surprised, obviously something is going on just because it’s hard to get somebody over just to do an initial look,” Munsinger said. But now that the work is underway, it will be done in time for graduation. The push is on to get more trade people to both South Dakota and North Dakota. A group called Dakota Construction Careers , made up of six building trade groups, is holding a series of open houses in communities across both North Dakota and South Dakota from now through May to recruit and train new workers.
