Hot Stock Watch: Emerging Public Company Looks to Increase Market Penetration! October 11, 2006

NOTE TO EDITORS: The Following Is an Investment Opinion Being Issued by Wall Street Capital Funding.

WESTON, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 11, 2006 -- Wall Street News Alert's "stocks to watch" this morning are: Packaged Home Solutions, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PKGH), The Home Depot (NYSE: HD), Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. (NASDAQ: BBBY) and Toll Brothers, Inc. (NYSE: TOL).

Packaged Home Solutions, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PKGH) may be a target of aggressive investors and day traders this morning! Yesterday the company, which announced last week its entry into the public market, issued a press release announcing that it has formed PHS Home Services Inc. as a subsidiary.

This news should get the attention of investors, as this is an industry first program, and shows the unique approach that PHS takes to the market! This subsidiary has introduced an innovative "Designed to Sell" (DTS) package of services for selling homeowners to increase the value on sale and time to sell their homes. PHS Home Services introduces the "Designed to Sell" Inspection & Evaluation Program, which includes financing improvements needed to increase the value and shorten the time to sell homes.

Continue to watch this company! PHS Home Services has completed a 6 month test market on a package of services targeted to assist homeowners to properly prepare their homes to sell faster and at a higher price based on the current soft market conditions. Today, PHS Home Services, is unveiling its "Designed to Sell" (DTS) Inspection & Consultation Services to professional Real Estate Agents, Brokers and the For Sale by Owner (FSBO) community. The "Designed to Sell" Inspection & Consultation Service is FREE to qualifying homeowners. However, the innovative DTS package of services generates substantial fees to PHS Home Services when the homeowner implements the recommendations targeted to sell the home faster and for more money. In addition, a significant number of kitchen & bath updates will be generated for Packaged Home Solutions' Interior division, since the remodelling of kitchens and baths have historically proven to be the best improvements to help sell a house faster and create a higher resale value.

The new subsidiary associates itself with the leading home inspection companies in each market, as well as the leading real estate brokerage firms in order to offer a complete free DTS home analysis and evaluation. The DTS includes a pre sale home inspection to a selling homeowner as a prelude to marketing their home. Since normally, only a buyer orders a home inspection when the house is under contract, the free home inspection for the seller, prior to contract, is a quantum leap in services provided to homeowners. Furthermore, the Designed to Sell package of services is transportable to every market that PHS expands into -- and offers a value added service to generate core business for PHS -- with virtually no competition.

Wall Street News Alert is placing Aggressive Investors on alert to monitor the progress of Packaged Home Solutions! Brad Cousino, President of PHS Home Services Inc. stated: "When we started Packaged Home Solutions three years ago, our desire was not only to be the first national home improvement services company, but also to introduce totally unique approaches to the market. This is the first such program we are announcing, but it certainly will not be the last. There is a void in the market, which is the preparation of a home for sale, as opposed to reacting to a home inspection report commissioned by the buyer. In a soft real estate market, which we are presently in, our DTS program will inform each selling homeowner what they must do to make sure that their house sells at the highest value and in the shortest period of time. The DTS program also creates a marketing relationship in each market with seasoned home inspectors, real estate brokers and quality preferred service providers who provide repairs and improvements that are beyond the scope of the services provided by PHS. The DTS package of services allows us to penetrate each new market quicker and more effectively, which is vitally important to us, as we expand into 30 markets."

The stock closed yesterday at $2.50 a share.
