Got a new place to live? Check out Your New Home

The housing market continues to heat up, a point reinforced by today’s S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Index, which showed the largest year-over-year gain since 2005. Also out today is Your New Home, a special issue from Consumer Reports aimed at anyone with a new place to live, from first-time buyers to downsizing empty-nesters. If your plan is to stay put and create a dream house out of the home you have, you’ll also find plenty of value in the new publication.
Your New Home is packed with hundreds of top-rated appliances, materials, and products from Consumer Reports’ tests. Wondering which matching washer/dryer pair is best for your new upper-floor laundry room? We’ve got the answer. Want to amp up your new abode’s curb appeal? We’ll show you which roofing and siding products combine value, looks, and performance. The 136-page color guide also includes smaller projects to help you personalize your home and add to its value.
You’ll find Your New Home at assorted retailers, bookstores, and in the Consumer Reports Bookstore.
