Houzz to Home Survey

Sheila Schmitz added this to Houzz Survey: Livability Trumps Home Value
Of today's homeowners, 70 percent do not plan to take out a loan to pay for that beautiful home. They'd rather cut back on vacations and other big-ticket items or do some of the work themselves than delay or decrease the budget for their home improvement plans. Even upscale homeowners are taking a hands-on approach to building, remodeling and decorating projects. The survey found that while 45 percent of households at upper income levels ($150,000 per year or more) are choosing to hire an architect, an interior designer, a general contractor or another remodeling or decorating professional to complete a project in its entirety, an equal number of them are combining professional help and DIY efforts. That proportion is only slightly less than the 49 percent taking this combination approach in lower income brackets.What Homeowners Plan to Spend (2012 to 2014)
