Issued quarterly, and seasonally adjusted, the Residential Remodeling Index (RRI) gives a unique look into the health of more than 350 remodeling markets around the country. In January 2011, we issued our inaugural Top 100 Markets report, which will make its sophomore showing in the January 2012 issue. 

Remodeling editors are hard at work researching data, interveiwing remodelers, and developing market reports for this year's Top 20 markets cover story, coming in January. To tide you over, here's a sneak peek at the cities that topped the list and the market drivers that got them there.

Is your city on the list? Contact one of our senior or associate editors and let us know how you view the market in your area.
