The result that those renovating in the 55-74 age group is so high doesn't surprise me. We are in our sixties, and many of our friends do not want what developers think is 'retirement living' ... crammed in apartments or villas. Even if it means less maintenance!!! We want individual space, pleasant views and personal rooms/ sheds for pursuing hobbies and crafts that working life limits. Updating our existing homes provides this.

i have been looking at buying established or building new and every established house needs a kitchen reno to change the footprint not just re fresh. they all have small kitchens tucked in a corner and large houses. even alot of the house plans i see on line from all building companies(and I have looked at all of them searching for the right one) i would need to change or add to the kitchen as it is small or underwhelming. KITCHENS sell houses so why are the builders not centralizing and making the kitchens a good size? This is so frustrating.
