    Posted on June 11 2017

  • Millennials Spend on Home Remodeling

    Posted on May 21 2017


    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.

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. Millennials are not going this route with most of them using credit cards. Houzz conducted a survey of more than 100,000 participants finding that spending since 2004 has gradually increased year after year. CNBC says that this is a signal to the rest of the country that the housing market has rebounded nicely since the recession, and they claim that the current spending rates are comparable to those of pre-recession numbers.
