April is National Home Improvements month
  • April is National Home Improvements month. Property owners across the UK have spent almost £8,000 each on home improvements over the last five years, a staggering £48 billion in total, according to new research by the National Association of Estate Agents.
  • Nearly three-quarters of home owners have redecorated, while two in five have put in new flooring or landscaped the garden and one third has refreshed the bathrooms
  • Over half of home owners stated their motivation for carrying out such work was to improve the look of their home, nearly a quarter sought to add value and one in five bought a ‘fixer-upper’ on purpose.
  • One in fourteen (7%) of property owners stated their reason for undertaking improvements was because the cost of moving was too high.
