CNBC reports that millennials are among the top groups of people increasing the money spent on home remodeling projects. While the oldest homeowners are still the largest spending group, millenials are quickly coming in second with a seven percent increase in average money spent to remodel a home for an average of more than $26,000 a year. Surprisingly, a first-time buyer often spends nearly $34,000 renovating a residential property.
Where is the money coming from for new construction and rehab projects? Typically property owners use the equity in the home and other items like bonds, stocks, and vehicles to access the necessary money to complete home projects.
