CHICAGO, Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- A poll conducted by Movingdayboxes.com finds that for the first time in nearly two years people are starting to find work and moving out of temporary dwellings with family.
Peter Grafton, Jr. is like many small business owners who started a business just before the market crashed. He has a small home furniture store in suburban Chicago that has been struggling since 2008. "My wife, kids and I moved in with my parents in late 2008 to free up some money and keep our store alive," Grafton states. "Finally we see people coming back to our store and purchasing furniture for their new home, which in many cases was purchased as a short-sale. Our hope is that the government will allow foreclosures to continue and hopefully streamline the process. Foreclosures ironically are breathing new life into many businesses because it drives demand for a wide variety of home-related businesses like furniture."
In September, Mr. Grafton was able to move his family out of his parent's house and into a nearby apartment. "It's nice to have our own place again," says Grafton, "but the silver lining is that we all realized the most important things of life are family, friends and the basic necessities."
