U.S. Homeowners Will Spend $321 Billion on Remodeling and Repairs This Year

August 25, 2016 Chelsea Strong

The national remodeling market has come a long way since the 2008 housing crash. According to the Leading Indicator of Remodeling Activity (LIRA), home renovations are on the rise and are expected to accelerate. Remodeling and repair expenditures are anticipated to increase to 8% by the start of 2017, which is much higher than its 4.9% historical average.

“By the middle of next year, the national remodeling market should be very close to a full recovery from its worst downturn on record,” says Abbe Will, Research Analyst in the Remodeling Futures Program at the Joint Center.

Thanks to a rising economy and a healthier housing market, annual spending on home renovations is set to reach $321 billion which is just shy of the previous peak set in 2006 before the housing crash.
