The Street: Mortgage Slowdown Will Lead to Remodeling Spending

December 14, 2022

The 2022 mortgage slowdown will lead to an increase in remodeling spending, according to a recent report from The Street.

The National Association of Realtors (NAR) reports that the number of contracts for new homes has fallen significantly since September. As the U.S. housing market slows, more homeowners will turn to remodeling projects, The Street explains.

According to The Street, homeowners will “take [this] opportunity to build more value into their homes by engaging in major remodeling and renovation projects.

The report says that consumers are now less interested in “fixer-upper” properties, since prices have hiked for all property types. As a result, consumers will look to renovate their homes and increase resale value down the road.

This is welcomed news for remodelers, who should see business pick up as more consumers turn to renovation.
