Excerpted from "Americans Boost Spending on Remodeling: Homeowners Doled Out $130 Billion Last Year for Renovations"
- Homeowners spent $130 billion on remodeling projects last year, according to data released February 3, 2014 by the U.S. Census Bureau. That was up 3.1% from 2012 and was the largest amount of home-remodeling spending since 2007, the year that the housing downturn began.
- Permits for remodeling jobs in the U.S. rose 5.1% last year from 2012, the largest increase since 2010, according to permit-tracking company BuildFax.
- Home-equity lending--which sank to its lowest level of the past 10 years in 2010--jumped 18% last year to 123.4 billion, according to estimates by Moody's Analytics.
- According to real estate data firm CoreLogic, two-thirds of all U.S. homeowners had at least 20% equity in their homes as of last year's third quarter, up from 53.2% two years earlier.
- Rising spending on remodeling is in contrast to recent signs of slowing in new-home construction activity, indicating that a growing number of consumers have decided that upgrading their home might be a better investment than buying a new one.
