Home renovation is big, both in Perth and across Australia. During the 2015-2016 financial year, we spent $7.7 billion across Australia renovating our homes. It is estimated that 8 million Australians renovate their homes every year. 2 million of those who renovate spend at least $5,000. These numbers take all sizes of home renovations into consideration, from a minor paint job to a full renovation.
Here are the findings of a study called “Australian Renovation Trends and Insights.”
9% renovate to improve the aesthetics of their homes. 8.8% renovated to improve the functionality. 7.9% renovate to improve their property’s resale value. It is estimated that Australians receive $2 for every dollar they spend on renovations when it’s time to sell their homes.
7.6% renovate to improve their home’s energy efficiency. 7.5% renovate to minimise costs. 6.4% integrate green or sustainable materials into their renovations. 6.1% renovate due to health concerns. 4.9% integrate “smart technology” into their homes.
One of the better trends we see is that 90% of those who renovate get some sort of professional help. 63% hire a professional builder like Next Level Extensions to do the work. The average amount spent on each renovation is $47,984. 36% of Australians plan to renovate during the next 12 months.
One in four home renovations cost between $12,000-$40,000.
