Jackie Benveniste recently checked the value of her Sandy Springs home. It was worth $40,000 more than the last time she looked.
The retired banker said the rising numbers change her outlook.
“It feels more secure for me to spend money,” she said. “I’m fixing stuff.”
Benveniste said she has more confidence. She’s going to the mall a little more often, and she plans to spend money on landscaping and other projects. She’s noticed neighbors are doing home improvement projects, too.
Her friend and neighbor Lynn Simon has noticed more “for sale” signs in their neighborhood.
“They’re just all of a sudden popping up,” she said.
