Amazon Launches Amazon Home Services

I said years ago that in the future we’ll buy everything from Amazon ($AMZN – no positions), with the “unexpected” item I used as an example being electricity.   We don’t yet buy our electricity from Amazon (give it 2 years), but today they announced Amazon Home Services, which seems like a logical step given the plethora of goods they sell.

In what looks like an initial salvo at putting Angie’s List out of business ($ANGI – no positions), Amazon Home Services offers services across a variety of categories: General home improvement,  lawn and garden, automotive, etc.  Their main page looks like this:


The ones that are grayed out are not available in your area.   Interestingly, as you can see in my demo snapshot, if I put in my old NYC zipcode I could get goat-grazing services, but no goat grazing was available in my current rural New Hampshire zipcode.    This seems odd, as New York City residents probably have little to no need for goat grazing,  but it’s more likely a supply problem than a demand problem:  Amazon simply hasn’t tracked down a goat herder in my neighborhood yet (note to self: business opportunity).

Anyway, I found this latest development by Amazon to be interesting and worth noting.
